CIU Race Meetings

You can make a booking by filling in the form on the racing page of Club Journal with a cheque made out to the appropriate racecourse. To obtain the discount we send all the forms to the racecourse together as one block booking and they will send you the tickets at your club a few days before the meeting. Tickets are sent to the club as otherwise anyone could buy them.

We need to receive your booking three weeks before the meeting otherwise we cannot guarantee you will receive the discount because late bookings do not save the courses any work.
