Racing NSW and Australian Turf Club have teamed up for what is believed to be a first in Australian racing. The Racing NSW ‘Statewide Pass’ provides racegoers with an annual pass to gain general admission entry to every race meeting at every racecourse in NSW for the 2013/14 racing season.
Priced at $249, racing fans can attend an unlimited number of the 767 race meetings on 363 days at the 136 race clubs throughout the State. With feature metropolitan race days costing up to $40 and feature Provincial and Country meetings up to $20 it will not take many visits for the pass to pay for itself.
The pass was developed on the back of the successful ATC initiative last season of the ‘season pass’ which for $199 gained general admission entry to all metropolitan race meetings in Sydney. Provincial and Country Clubs throughout NSW supported the concept of providing an offer for racing fans throughout the State that built on the ATC’s 2012 initiative.
The ATC metropolitan season pass is available again this year with the price remaining at $199, along with an ‘off peak’ season pass priced at only $99 which gains entry to all meetings except for specific major Group 1 race days.
The Racing NSW Statewide Pass, along with the ATC metropolitan season pass and off peak pass will go on sale on Monday July 15 and all are valid from the new racing season commencing 1st August 2013 through to 31st July 2014. The statewide pass is available to existing Members of any race club in NSW whilst the metropolitan seasons passes are available to everyone without restriction.
Those purchasing the pass who register their email address when buying will also receive a range of free offers and benefits for major race days throughout the year.
