10th year and this time is was just too busy. It is very well organised. Layout of things changes slightly every year. Queues this year though were too long for everything probably as it was on a Saturday and they gad upped the numbers. Great fun for a day out though

Hello,

Thank you for your comments regarding Ladies Day. We are in the process of reviewing all information from this year's event and taking these points into consideration for 2015.

I am sorry you felt the queues were too long, we are looking at better ways to manage/expand our facilities for the future.

I am glad you had a good day overall however and hope you will return next year (tickets are on sale now).

Kind regards,
Musselburgh Racecourse

As a resident of Australia, I attended the race meeting and couldn't see a thing due to marquees. I reported my concern on the day and then ten days later via email. I received no reply to my complaint-how bad is that?

Just attended the race meeting on the day before ladies day and really it was extremely poor. The tents for hospitality fir the next day blocked the view of the racing from virtually all but the top steps of the stand. There were no rolls or snacks available after the first race. On mentioning this i was told they would have some the following day. Big deal! Especially since not only was I not intending to go the next day but there were no tickets anyway!!!! Really got the impression that they couldn't care less but were only interested in the next day. A really poor show for the entry fee.....and being an edinburgh resident i will think twice about going again.

Dear Jane,

Thank you for your comments. We are disappointed that you felt this way and would like to offer our apologies. Each raceday is treated with the utmost importance, from our quieter days right through to our sell-out Ladies Day. I have to apologise for the response you had when trying to purchase food, this was certainly not the case and there should have been more than enough food for our raceday on Friday. I am sorry you had this experience and I do hope you will one day return to Musselburgh. We will certainly look at these points highlighted and address going forward.

Kind regards,

Musselburgh Racecourse.

£20 taxi from Waverley station Nice race course with good viewing plenty of cover. Good food for a low price. Friendly feel plenty of on course bookmakers plus 365 office. This was my first time racing in Scotland and would recommend Musselburgh racecourse for a great day out
