About Market Rasen Racecourse
Market Rasen Racecourse, which is part of The Jockey Club, stages over 20 jump racing fixtures each year and is a leading conference and events centre in the East Midlands.
The venue is one of the friendliest places in the country to watch jump racing, with events held throughout the year. The beautiful track, in a lovely rural setting where it has been since 1924, is best known as a premier summer jumping racecourse. Top races include the Listed 188bet Summer Plate and 188bet Summer Hurdle, both run during the annual Ladies’ Day in mid-July. The family-friendly atmosphere, its stunning countryside views and exciting races make Market Rasen a great day out for everyone.
Such is the esteem in which the racecourse is held by racing industry professionals that it has been chosen by the Racehorse Owners Association as one of the top six smaller racecourses in Britain for the last three years.
Market Rasen offers a range of enclosures on its feature racing days to suit every pocket and to ensure visitors can enjoy their day. Visitors to the County Enclosure can enjoy fantastic views of the racecourse, with sloping lawns to the parade ring, not to mention a selection of great bars and restaurants. Tattersalls Enclosure, in the heart of the racecourse, includes the parade ring, winners’ enclosure, weighing room and pre-parade ring. During a number of midweek fixtures, the racecourse offers a one enclosure policy, allowing everyone to access all the facilities at an affordable price.
Families, especially at Market Rasen, are well looked after, with a number of Family Fun Days held during the calendar. Bouncy castles and other entertainment are available on selected days in the Lawn Enclosure. Two picnic car parks offer visitors an alternative view of the racing.
At almost all meetings, accompanied under 18s are admitted free of charge.
The racecourse attracts one of its largest attendances of the year at its traditional Boxing Day meeting, which is part and parcel of the Christmas festivities for thousands of people in Lincolnshire.
