The day your horse runs is a special occasion and we hope that you want your attire to reflect this.

Therefore, we have initiated a dress code for our Owners and Trainers facility from 2017, which we kindly ask all patrons to adhere to.
Owners & Trainers using our dedicated facility are asked to follow the below guidelines:
  • Owners are encouraged to wear smart attire; gentlemen are asked to wear a collared shirt, although a tie is not essential.
  • Smart denim with no rips or tears is acceptable as are long, tailored shorts.
  • Sportswear, denim shorts, t-shirts, vests, sports/supporter shirts, tracksuits, sportswear (including trainers) and bare chests are prohibited. Gentlemen’s flip flops and sandals are not permitted.
Bath Racecourse reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone who is considered inappropriately dressed.
Thank you for your support.

Sprints and Stayers Conditions and Race Information

All horses which start in a qualifying race, as defined in the Rules of Racing, will be eligible to enter THE BATH CUP SPRINT AND STAYERS' HANDICAP SERIES (FINALS) to be run at Bath Racecourse on Sunday 15th September with a Minimum Total Prize Fund of £15000 in each final.
In the event of the abandonment of these qualifying races, any horse which has been declared to run in this race under the provisions of Rule (F)89, or any horse entered to run in this race if the time of the abandonment was prior to the declaration stage, will be qualified to enter the Finals. Any horse which has been eliminated from these qualifying races will also be eligible, subject to the Rules of Racing, to enter the Finals.
The British Horseracing Authority will modify Part B of Schedule (F)8 for the purposes of the Final, such that a horse will gain protection from elimination by obtaining points throughout the series. Points will be awarded in each qualifier as follows: Winner-10 points, 2nd-8 points, 3rd-6 points, 4th-4 points, 5th-2 points, 6th-1 point. The horse obtaining the highest number of points will be afforded the greatest protection from elimination.
In the event of two or more horses entering the Final with the same number of points, the horse allotted the lowest weight will be eliminated first. If two or more such horses have the same weight, their position in the elimination sequence will be allocated by random ballot.
