Catch a STAR at Ascot Racecourse

Announcing the launch of the ‘Seventeen to Twenty-Four Ascot Racegoers Card’ 

Following on from the success of the Colts and Fillies Club, Ascot Racecourse is proud to announce its latest exciting initiative, the STAR Card. Available for all young people aged 17 to 24, the new card entitles holders to enjoy substantial discounts on racing at the famous track throughout the year.

Issued free of charge, cardholders will be entitled to purchase a half price* ticket to all Ascot racedays (with the exception of Royal Ascot and British Champions Day), representing a saving of between £6 and £22.50 per raceday in 2011 depending on the date and type of ticket bought.

Firework Spectacular
As an additional bonus, anyone who already has a card or signs up for one in the next few weeks will be entitled to FREE entry on Saturday 29th October, United House Group Day and Firework Spectacular.

Jayne McWilliam, Ascot Racecourse said:


“We’re really excited about the new STAR Card. With such great discounts, we hope it will encourage some new faces to the racecourse and look forward to welcoming them on 29th October. Members just simply insert their card into one of the turnstiles when they arrive that day and they will be admitted to the Grandstand Admission area free of charge. We’re also really pleased that this card will provide further benefits to our loyal Colts and Fillies members who will be able to progress to the STAR Card when they turn 17 years old and continue their enjoyment of all that Ascot has to offer.”

*Tickets sold at half of the on the day price
