Market Rasen Racecourse has been named as one of the top tracks in Britain by the 8,000-strong Racehorse Owners Association (ROA).

It is the fourth year in a row that the Lincolnshire venue has received the ‘Gold Standard’ award.

Representatives of racehorse owners visited every track in Britain at least once in 2018 to assess all aspects of the race-day experience.

In addition, feedback was provided by hundreds of ROA members following their racecourse visits.

The 2018 Gold Standard Award holders will now be in contention for their respective category’s ‘Racecourse of the Year’ at the annual ROA Horseracing Awards next month.

Nadia Powell, General Manager of Market Rasen Racecourse, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to retain the ROA Gold Standard for a fourth year in succession.

“Like our fellow racecourses in The Jockey Club, we place huge importance on our relationship with Britain’s horsemen – racehorse owners, trainers, jockeys and stable staff.

“We’ve always had a strong reputation for excellent ground conditions and a varied race programme – and we provide the best possible race-day experience for owners.”
