Course type National Hunt

Market Rasen Racecourse is a National Hunt racecourse in the town of Market Rasen, in Lincolnshire, England.

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.

During the winter in addition to National Hunt racing a left-handed point to point course is laid out on the inside of the National Hunt course.

Notable races

  • Prelude Handicap Chase
  • Summer Hurdle
