Market Rasen Racecourse
The racecourse from the air.
|Location||Market Rasen, Lincolnshire|
|Screened on||Racing UK|
|Course type||National Hunt|
The course is a right-handed oval with a circumference of around one-and-a-quarter miles. Although National Hunt racing is traditionally a winter sport, Market Rasen stages a year-round programme of racing.
Its most high-profile fixture is the Summer Plate meeting, normally staged on the third Saturday in July. This features the two-and-a-quarter miles Summer Hurdle and the eponymous Summer Plate, a two-and-three-quarter miles chase, both of which are among the most valuable National Hunt races staged in Britain during the summer months.
There did used to be Point to Point racing held here on a left handed track inside the main National Hunt course. The course is now disused.
