Owners Racecourse Admission Details
Admission
When arriving at the turnstiles, all owners with runners engaged on the day must present either their Victorian’s owners gold card or Photo ID, to get themselves and a guest into the course free of charge.

Members Reserve access
All owners listed in the racebook are entitled to two (2) Members’ Reserve tickets. Owners may Purchase up to four (4) additional Members’ Reserve tickets above this entitlement.

Mounting Yard
The MRC will now provide up to 250 Mounting Yard tickets per race. Tickets will be allocated by dividing the total allocation (250) by the number of runners in the race. Mounting Yard tickets will be initially allocated to owners named in the racebook and syndicate managers, and then syndicate members. 

Syndications

Each syndicate manager is responsible for providing the Club racing@mrc.net.au with a list of names before the day of the race meeting of the syndicate members who are to receive the owners entitlements. If no names have been sent prior to the meeting, then the only person who can pick up the tickets for the syndicate is the syndicate manager.
Owners not attending, but sending a representative

If any owner is not going to be in attendance on the day and another of the owners wish to claim the unused tickets, the non-attending owner must provide the Club with a letter of authority racing@mrc.net.au to distribute their tickets to the attending owner. Equally, if an owner is not going to be present on the day and has a representative acting on their behalf, the Club must receive a signed letter granting approval for the representative to receive the owners entitlement.

Ticket collection
When you have entered the course please head to the Raceday Office to collect your owners entitlements for the day.
