NHA will issue owners' parade ring passes
By SuperUser Account
New rules regarding parade rings were implemented countrywide, at the beginning of the year. The Racing Association, Gold Circle, Phumelela Gaming, The National Horseracing Authority and Kenilworth Racing agree that these rules will continue to enhance the image of the sport and ensure greater safety. Since 11 January 2014 access to a parade ring on any raceday requires an RA, Gold Circle or NHRA badge.
Owners not belonging to an owner’s association can get valid badges from the NHRA. A letter was sent by the racing governing body clarifying this new arrangement, with Colin Hall the contact person to help resolve any queries.
Badge holders can bring guests into the parade ring, using day badges that will be distributed from information kiosks on the various racecourses.
A revised and relaxed dress code sensibly does not allow short pants and sandals. Also, children under 12 years of age may not enter the parade ring for safety reasons, and now that the introduction trial period has been successfully concluded, stricter measures will apply to ensure that access and dress code are adhered to.
