Racegoers Guide

Putting on a bet at the races is all part of the experience and we challenge anyone to not scream with frustration or delight as their horse approaches the winning line!

You can put as little as £2 on a horse and to help you chose a horse our raceday programme will give you tips for picking your fancy and details on how to read the form. However, you may have as much luck picking the horse because you like its name or you like the colour of the jockeys silks.

There are 2 ways to bet – either with the tote or with the ‘bookies’ that can be found in front of the viewing grandstands.

The RacehorseDress Code

Want to learn more about the four legged beasts you see parading in the paddock? Confused by their different shapes, sizes and colours? Fear not!

Next time you go racing why not take along our handy downloadable All About The Horse guide? It tells you all you need to know about the racehorse - their family tree, what to look for in the paddock and where they live after racing...

Racehorses are incredible creatures and learning more about them through this handy guide will give you some new found knowledge to use during a day at the races.

Ffos Las Racecourse does not operate a strict dress code for general admission, but would ask all customers to wear smart, casual clothing.

The dress code policy for hospitality areas is smart casual which excludes ripped or torn jeans, trainers and rugby or football shirts.

Our feature and premium day's gives you the opportunity to get into the theme of the day and you may want to get dressed up. Ladies Day and Night are the ideal Racedays to really let your imagination run wild, with prizes for best dressed Lady, Gent and Hat!
