The Discover Racehorse Ownership Weekend will see the launch of Ascot’s new Sunflower Lawn. 

This area will be specifically designated for those looking for a quiet, alcohol-free space. Located on the Grundy & Bustino Lawn in front of the Owners & Trainers Restaurant to the west of the racecourse, the area provides an excellent view of the horses in the Pre-Parade Ring.

This area forms part of Ascot’s ongoing accessibility plan, providing additional facilities for guests who suffer from invisible disabilities. 

The new Sunflower Lawn complements our Sunflower Lanyard Scheme, whereby customers whose needs are not immediately obvious can wear a green lanyard that discreetly shows that they, or someone they care for, suffers from a hidden disability. 

Ascot staff with additional training wear a sunflower pin badge and are empowered to provide additional assistance to those who may require it. Sunflower lanyards are available from all racecard kiosks and Ticket Offices at Ascot.
