Entry for horseboxes is via Seeds Lane entrance. Horseboxes will park in their normal car park off Melling Road. It is important that the box driver knows the identity of the horses he or she is carrying.
The driver will be stopped at the gate and asked to name the horses inside. If our security staff does not receive an answer consistent with the listed information, then access will be refused. Once inside, the police will search all boxes.
