The Winning Post Hospitality Critic Review


The Winning Post is a hospitality village situated next to the Winning Post, inside the course opposite the Queen’s Stand.


The large hospitality marquees sit either side of the Winning Post, close to the rails.


The Winning Post marquees are contemporary and smart, with floor-to-ceiling glazed windows providing an abundance of natural light. The round tables are decorated with a crisp fresh design. There is a wooden viewing terrace in front of the marquees, next to the rails, providing a slightly elevated view as the horses sprint past, directly in front of you.

Private Tables

Private tables are for 10 or more guests, smaller groups will need to share a table.


Your admission badge provides access into the Lonsdale Enclosure (immediately next to the Winning Post hospitality). You also have full access into the main Grandstand opposite (not the Queen’s Stand), including the Parade Ring, although this would mean walking across the racecourse.


Catering consists of a 3-course plated meal (starter, main, dessert). Afternoon Tea, with a modern twist, is served later in the day.


Inside the Winning Post


There is a premium cocktail reception on arrival, followed by a full complimentary bar including beers, wines, house spirits and soft drinks. Please note that Champagne is an extra charge.


Service is left to the waiting-staff, there is not a hostess service.


There is a racing tipster included, who will talk you through the Racecard.


There are several TV monitors throughout the facility.

Car Parking

Car park passes are allocated on a 1:4 basis.


A Racecard is included and there are Tote betting facilities available.
