Badges and Parking Labels
For Owners whose horse is in training
Each Owner whose horse is in training is issued with a seasonal car park label allowing access to the Grandstand II Car Park at Sha Tin. Distribution of Owner's badge(s) and car park label are as follows:
|Owner Type||No. of Badges||No. of Car Park Labels|
|Sole Owner||1 Set||1|
|Partnership (2 partners)||2 Sets||2|
|Partnership (3 partners)||3 Sets||3|
|Partnership (4 partners)||4 Sets||4|
Syndicates who have been Owners since the 2000/2001 season will continue to enjoy their existing race day privileges so long as they have, on a continuous basis, at least one horse in training or been granted an import permit.
Sole Owners can now enjoy enhanced parking privileges when attending a Sha Tin race meeting. In addition to their normal car park labels, a total of 20 car park vouchers (for Sha Tin race meetings only) in the entire season will be issued to each sole Owner, and 40 vouchers to each Sole Owner with two or three horses in training. Vouchers will be sent every three months to Sole Owners for exchanging daily car park labels at the entrance of the Sha Tin Grandstand II car park. These vouchers are not valid on major racedays, as published by the Club.
For Owners whose horse dies or is retired
Any Owner whose horse dies or is retired during the season may retain the owner's badge(s) for the balance of the season in which his/her horse is retired plus the ensuing season. However, such Owner may retain the car park label(s) only for the balance of the season in which his/her horse is retired. Once an Owner sells his/her horse, he/she will lose his/her entitlement to owner's badge(s) and car park label(s).
Please refer to Go Racing for more details on owner facilities.
Owners can visit their horses at stables compound while their horses are in training but they are requested to wear their Owner badge and obtain visitor badges for accompanying guests from the security post at the track entrance gate. They should only visit their own horse(s) and, may visit the stables of other trainers by invitation. With effect from the 2019/2020 season, all Owners are required to sign a stable visit disclaimer prior to their first visit to the stables.
Nevertheless, owners will not be permitted to enter the stables compound to visit their horse on any race day or at the quarantine stables when they are subject to isolation/quarantine requirement.
Equine diseases can be easily carried on people’s clothing, hands, shoes, hats and hair.
