Train Smash Anticipation

Ooooh, this is going to be good:

Racegoers are free to wear what they want at the Jockey Club’s 15 racecourses after it was announced formal dress codes are being dropped in a bid to make horseracing more ‘accessible and inclusive’.

Instead of restricting racegoers from watching the action in certain enclosures based on what they are wearing, the Jockey Club has told its customers to ‘dress as you feel most comfortable and confident’.

The only exceptions to the new policy at any of the 342 fixtures staged by The Jockey Club is offensive fancy dress or offensive clothing of any kind and replica sports shirts.

One can only imagine what’s going to happen at Liverpool’s Aintree when the dress regulations are lifted, considering what’s happened in the past with a dress code:

Hold on to your hats, folks… it’s going to be a wild ride.


  1. Several years ago before the great ChiComm Flu, my missus and I went to the opening night at Churchill Downs. We dressed appropriately with head wear etc. We got tickets for an upstairs clubhouse of some sort that include a buffet, access to a betting window and a bar. It was a very nice experience. Later in the evening we went to the regular stands to see what that was like and it was a drunken shit show.
