As part of The Jockey Club, Market Rasen Racecourse reinvests all its profits back into the sport. It recognises the importance of owners, the contribution they make to horseracing, and is committed to providing them with the best possible raceday experience. The track offers a well-balanced and varied programme which we trust is attractive for horses running at all levels.

As a recipient of the Racehorse Owners Association’s Gold Standard award for the last two years, we pride ourselves on offering an excellent race-day experience for owners, with added extras that go above and beyond to ensure our owners have the very best experience.
