New this year:

Member’s Hill – The prime viewing space in the East Water Jump is now Member’s Hill. This exclusive area features 60 prime viewing parking spaces with spectacular views of more than 90 percent of the race course. The Member’s Hill area also features a private tent with complimentary food and beverages for guests with Member’s Hill badges. Reserve parking spaces on Member’s Hill will receive (4) Paddock Passes, (4) admission tickets, and (4) badges for admission to the Member’s Hill Hospitality Tent. The tent will serve food and beverages throughout the day and also have entertainment.

Expanded Paddock – This year, guests with a Paddock Pass can enter the paddock to watch the saddling and parade to the post up close. In the past, the paddock had been reserved for owners and trainers with horses in the race. The paddock will also be the location for the post race trophy presentation and unsaddling area for the top finisher. Being in the paddock is definitely the place to see and be seen at Willowdale!
