The area provides access to several areas in the Centenary Stand and Tommy Whittle Stand including the Jubilee Suite, Whittle Restaurant and Champagne and Seafood Bar.

Access to the Betting Ring and viewing around the Parade Ring and Winner’s Enclosures is also available. The preferred dress code is smart/casual and no jeans, t-shirts, tracksuits or training shoes are allowed.

Racecourse Information

The History

With over 32 races annually, Haydock Park conjures up a feast of racing year on year, combining the very best of Flat and Jump racing. The racecourse acts as the site for the Grand National Trial when the Haydock Park Gold Cup comes around each year in February. The three mile, four furlong race is run over French style obstacles and consistently attracts top competitors. Indeed, the track has certainly played host to many titans of racing and Red Rum (the only horse to win the Grand National 3 times) used it regularly as a warm up to the highlight of the British Jump Racing Calendar. In January, the track hosts a Champion Hurdle trial and a Long Distance Hurdle of 23-and-a-half furlongs.

Flat racing runs during the summer, with the pinnacle event being the Old Newton Cup. The first class sprint occurs in late june/early July and is named after the original racecourse, which was just a short distance away from the current venue. Other popular events include The Temple Stakes in May, the Lancashire Oaks in July, the Sprint Cup in September and the Betfair Chase in November. With events like these, it is no wonder Haydock Park was awarded racecourse of the year in 1998 and 2000.
