Non Grand National Meetings

For meetings outside of The Grand National Festival, on arrival at Aintree, owners will be able to collect up to six owners badges per runner, plus complimentary carvery meal vouchers and racecards. Trainers will be entitled to two complimentary badges. Additional badges can be purchased at a 50% reduced badge rate.

These can be collected from the Owners' and Trainers' Reception, situated in the ground floor of the Lord Sefton Stand, adjacent to the washdown area. Please ensure that you bring your PASS card with you. If you have any requirements for additional badges or require any further information, please contact Carly Goodall on 0151 522 2959.

Aintree is part of the ROA Scheme for racedays outside of The Randox Health Grand National Festival. To qualify for a complimentary ticket (one comp ticket per member), members must bring their ROA swipe card. This is valid at the Owners' and Trainers' reception.

The Papillon Suite on the third floor of the Earl of Derby Stand, has been reserved exclusively for owners and trainers, together with an additional viewing area on the County Stand Roof. Complimentary refreshments, including a carvery, tea and coffee, will be available throughout the day. There is also a full pay bar service.  

Our on-course photographer, Grossick Racing, will be available for any image requests, and a complimentary photograph and DVD of the race will be given to winning connections, who are invited into the Freebooter for a celebratory drink after their race.
