The shortlist of nominations has been completed, and a full list will appear in next week’s Market Rasen Mail.
The winners will be announced during racing on Sunday, February 16, with many winning prizes, including hospitality and tickets to forthcoming racedays to be awarded.
Nadia Powell, General Manager of Market Rasen Racecourse said: “We have been thrilled by the nominations, and the task faced by the judges in cutting them to a final four in each category has been anything but easy.
“Those of us who live and work in Market Rasen really do love the town- and this is a wonderful chance to celebrate it, and its people.
“So many people in Market Rasen will know, or work with a finalist, and it would be terrific to see many come to lend their support.”
Nadia added “Our Sunday fixtures are always well supported, and advance tickets are available for £10 with accompanied under-18s, as usual, admitted free.
“There is also a special Best of British package available, including admission and lunch, and further details are available from the Racecourse Office.
“The feature race is the Love Lincolnshire Wolds Handicap Hurdle, with a prize fund in excess of £20,000, and we hope many of the top jockeys will be in attendance.”
