Please note that Thirsk Racecourse has a new Premier Enclosure dress code. Racegoers are respectfully informed that in the Thirsk Premier Enclosure smart casual attire is a requirement. Gentlemen are required to wear a shirt with a collar, smart long trousers and shoes; jackets and ties are not mandatory, but are encouraged. The following items of dress will not be permitted – any items of sportswear, fancy dress, short trousers, ripped or torn garments, mottle-dyed denim, trainers, plimsolls, or any other items that, in the opinion of the management, are not in keeping with the Code or may cause offence to other racegoers. Anyone in breach of this dress code will be asked to leave the Premier Enclosure until such time as they are correctly dressed. 


There is no dress code in the Paddock Enclosure or Family Enclosure, although racegoers are asked to be respectful to one another in their choice of attire and not wear anything that is likely to offend or upset others; anyone so doing may be asked to leave the premises.
