Tailor-made to suit, your Platinum Experience could include: ​​
  • A behind-the-scenes walk through to the Jockeys' weigh-in area where you will meet and greet a jockey, hear about their best rides for the day and have the opportunity to ask them questions (or pose in a photo)

  • Watching our world-famous race caller George Simon call a race live from his perch high up on the fifth floor of the Ascot Stand

  • Taking a ride on an electric golf cart into the centre of the track and being there as the horses load into their barrier stalls before they "jump out" & race off  

  • Mixing with trainers & owners in the Love Racing Owners' Enclosure where you'll enjoy a complimentary drink, get a first glimpse of the horses pre-race and watch the jockeys 'mount up' and ride them out to the Birdcage 

  • A visit from a racing insider who will provide you and your guests inside knowledge on the day's racing, including a tip or two
