The Club on this raceday will be trialling the Orchid Lounge as an Owner exclusive lounge.  There will be a subsidized cash bar and ham station available along with betting facilities.  It is on the top floor Western end of the Grandstand.
Following consultation with the New Zealand Trainers’ Association & Racing Clubs, it has been agreed that entry to the Saddling Enclosures at all thoroughbred racing venues will be restricted to Licensed Trainers &  Registered Persons. In conjunction with this directive, the minimum age for staff to enter these areas is 14 years unless a Stipendiary Steward has granted prior approval. In order to enforce this policy, Licensed Trainers and Licensed Persons must display their official NZTR ID card to gain access to the Saddling Enclosure areas on raceday.
Licence Display:
To assist security in ensuring that only authorised people are allowed into the raceday stalls area it is essential that all licence-holders and licenced staff wear their licence badges so that they are clearly visible at all times.  Security do not necessarily know trainers and other licence holders by sight and wearing licence badges so that they are easily seen will prevent any unnecessary
embarrassment in accessing the stalls area.
