Q:

Hi there, I've never been to the track before so I would just like to make sure I've got this right... The purchase of a single Groupon ($24) entitles me and my up-to-5 friends/kids to watch a day of racing. The single purchase of $24 reserves the entire box for me and no other fees or charges apply. There is no additional charge to invite guests, and we can stay to watch all the races of the day. Reservation booking required. Am I right? :)

Adam K.  asked on  Apr 9, 2013

A:

Hi Adam - thanks for your inquiry. You have it absolutely right! You are also welcome to purchase additional Groupons and may reserve side-by-side boxseats if you'd like to invite more than 5 friends or come on multiple racedays through the season. See you at the races!

Q:

Can you smoke cigars in the private box?

A:

Hi Neil - thanks for your inquiry. As the boxseats are located within the Grandstand, smoking is not permitted. There are designated smoking areas located on the ground level Tarmac just below the boxseats.

Your website indicated that renting a box for 6 people for a day is actually only $30. Where does the other $18 in value come from? Is it the price of the programs? (I can't see anything about event programs on your website)

Q:

Do all six guests have to arrive together? Can I pick up tickets prior to race day? Are boxseats covered in case of rain?

Priscilla Y.  asked on  Apr 9, 2013

A:

Hi Priscilla - thanks for your inquiry. The majority of boxseats are covered. Reservations must be claimed and paid for (or in this case, having your groupon presented) by a member of your group at our Guest Services desk by the start of the second race on the raceday you reserve for. Therefore at least one member of your group must be here by the second race. Hastings Racecourse does not charge general admission so no tickets are required - the rest of your group may join you at your boxseat upon arrival.

Q:

Does this mean that Hastings Park will not be offering a Groupon this year that includes the Silks Buffet? If not, that's really disappointing :(

Terry W.  asked on  Apr 8, 2013

A:

Hi Terry - Thanks for your interest in Silks. At this time, we won't be offering a Groupon for Silks but you are still welcome to join us for the Feature Buffet on racedays during the season.

Chris W.  from  Merchant  replied on  Apr 8, 2013

Q:

I see this offers only the option of the boxes, are you going to be offering another groupon for Silk's restaurant as you did last year? ty

Linda C.  asked on  Apr 8, 2013

A:

Hi Linda - Unfortunately, we will not be offering the Silks Groupon this year at this time. You are still welcome to join us in Silks for our Feature Buffet on racedays during the season.
