Who we are
As the General Manager of the racecourse I oversee all areas of the businesses. Whether its business planning, supporting the grounds team or organising maintenance schedules, you’ll find that I’m involved somewhere along the way. This often results in challenging moments but can also be very rewarding.
Clerk Of The Course
Being the Clerk of The Course, my main duties on a raceday are to oversee the smooth running of racing. Other than providing Going Reports I am responsible for the safety of all the participants including horses and jockeys. This involves management of our Medical, Veterinary and Groundstaff teams. I am also the first point of contact for the BHA should there be any regulatory issues.
Between fixtures I oversee the management of the racing surface and track facilities such as the Stables, the Parade Ring and Weighing Room.
As the head groundsman I am responsible for the condition and appearance of the racing surface at Market Rasen whatever the weather. I also take responsibility for maintaining our nine hole golf course which is open all year round. On a raceday I work alongside the Clerk of Course and track team to ensure the track is in prime condition for racing.
