ACCESS TO SADDLING ENCLOSURE
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.
 
CHRISTMAS AT THE RACES MEETING INFORMATION:
 
CHRISTMAS CHEER:
The winning owner of each race on Friday will receive an Angus Meats Christmas ham and the owners of the first three placegetters will receive a Coupland’s Bakeries Christmas Cake.  The winning owner also receives a photo of their winner at the post race celebratory ‘shout’.
 
OWNERS PAVILION:
Owners are invited to join the Club and sponsors for a drink before their race in the ‘Owners Pavilion’ situated on the south side of the Parade Ring.
 
OWNERS PRIVILEGES:
Owners’ privileges are detailed in the NZTR Love Racing ‘Owners Letter’.  Owners are advised that the best parking, in front of the Grand National Stand, is accessed from the Steadman Road entrance.  Trainers please make owners aware of this information.  Owners are invited to lead winners back to scale and retain the presentation lead.
 
FLOAT PARKING:
All Floats to use the containment area.  Trainers and Float operators are advised that it is a requirement of the Canterbury Jockey Club Horse Containment Policy that all floats unload and load within the confines of the contained Float Park.  Horses are not to be unloaded or loaded anywhere other than within this area.  Entry to the float park is via the Steadman Road entrance.
 
HORSE CONTAINMENT – GATES CLOSED:
Trainers and Float operators are reminded that all gates to the stables on Racecourse and Yaldhurst Roads are to remain closed at all times.  Please ensure that your owners, staff and other contractors are aware of this requirement.  This is a major safety issue as closed gates prevent horses escaping off the property onto the surrounding roads.
 
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 licensed 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.
