We are delighted to welcome Owners and Trainers to Chelmsford City Racecourse and fully recognise the vital role they play in the horseracing industry.


Situated above the Winning Connections box overlooking the Parade Ring, our Owners and Trainers Bar is reserved exclusively for owners and all licensed trainers.

Serving a complimentary welcome drink and light refreshments throughout the racing, the bar will remain open for one hour after the last race. Tables cannot be reserved.

Since July 2019 we have also provided an additional facility for Owners & Trainers, adjacent to the Parade Ring. This single storey, glass-walled marquee and lawn is fully accessible and provides betting facilities, a bar and racing coverage. The usual welcome drink and complimentary food are also provided here. 

Owners and Trainers with runners also have a dedicated viewing area next to the Fairwood Restaurant in the main Grandstand. This facility is easily reached from the Parade Ring, provides excellent viewing of the track and is fully wheelchair accessible. All facilities on offer in the Owners & Trainers Bar are also available in the Fairwood Lounge viewing area.

We also offer discounted packages to all Owners and Trainers wishing to dine in our restaurants. Whilst we retain a number of tables for our Owners and Trainers, our restaurants are very popular and we would encourage booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Please contact the sales team on 01245 360300 for further details and to make a booking.
