More than 53,000 owners will shortly receive their golden ticket to racing in Victoria next season A golden delight will arrive in mailboxes over the coming weeks as the new Victorian Owners’ Gold Card is delivered by Racing Victoria (RV) to more than 53,000 racehorse owners.

The Victorian Owners’ Gold Card will arrive in letterboxes, activated and ready for use, along with a car pass for the 2013-14 racing season.

Card holders will receive more benefits and privileges than ever before, including admission for an owner and guest, plus access to the mounting yard, exclusive on-course facilities and a complimentary racebook on the day their horse is racing.

The Victorian Owners’ Gold Card will admit to more than 300 race meetings statewide free of charge when an owner’s horse is not engaged.

Card holders will also be able to access for the first time a brand new purpose-built owners’ facility at Flemington Racecourse which will allow the Victoria Racing Club (VRC) to better accommodate owners during the world-renowned Melbourne Cup Carnival.

This new facility complements established metropolitan facilities hosted by Melbourne Racing Club and Moonee Valley at their respective courses, being the Connections Pavilion and Sunline Suite respectively.

RV and the Victorian Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners Association (TROA) are working to continually improve the ownership experience across the state.

TROA’s Owners’ Forum, conducted in June this year, identified several key areas of focus and the two organisations are committed to rolling out identified improvements during the new racing season.
