Come be part of the roar of the crowd!
Our general admission areas provide a relaxed, laidback way for eventgoers to enjoy their day and offer excellent viewing opportunities of the racetrack and associated areas.
With our new stabling complex now open, you can get right up close to our amazing equine athletes (perfect for selfie opportunities!).
When it comes time to race, you have the option of either enjoying exceptional views from the covered, outdoor seating upstairs in the Ellerslie Stand or get as close as possible to the thunder of the track from the open space of public lawns which neighbour the home straight.
The Newmarket Room, located on the ground floor of the Ellerslie Stand, is open to the public and offers a range of tasty food & beverages to purchase. There will also be satellite bars and food vendors set up in outdoor general admission areas.
You’re welcome to bring along your own picnic food, unopened non-alcoholic beverages, as well as chairs & picnic rugs for use in our outdoor general admission areas which are available on a first-in, first-served basis.
A general admission ticket provides you access to watch (or compete) in the day's Fashions in the Field competition as well as the ability to walk around the public pathways within the stabling complex.
Head into the Infield Family Zone
Anyone with a General Admission ticket can also get access into the Infield Family Zone (middle of racetrack; accessible via pedestrian foot tunnel from grandstand side of racecourse) where there will be free children's entertainment including pony rides,a bouncy castle, organised games and a mobile barnyard. Bars will also be open in that area, along with food vendors and betting facilities. We suggest families with young children may prefer to base themselves from this area on this day (picnic lunches welcome).
Racecourse gates open at 10.30am
Under 15s get free general admission and free admission into the Infield Family Zone
