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 AND this option gives you the bonus of your own reserved table for up to 10 guests in the comfort of an air conditioned room in the Ellerslie Stand.

From the moment the horses leave the stables, you’ll have endless opportunities to get up close to these amazing animals in our general admission areas.

With our Premium GA option, you can also enjoy the races from your own reserved, indoor table in a room boasting great views of the track whilst still having the flexibility to head downstairs and hear the thunder of the track from the open space of public lawns which neighbour the home straight.
