Racegoers are not allowed to take alcohol onto the site.

A spokesperson for the racecourse said: “We are used to people trying to sneak alcohol in things like water bottles, but someone using a salami and tomato sandwich was a new one for us.”

The vodka was confiscated and is still waiting to be collected at the racecourse’s office.
