A PRESTIGIOUS award for the Best Jump Track in the country has been presented to Market Rasen Racecourse.

The gong was announced as part of the 2010 Neil Wyatt Racecourse Groundstaff Awards last week.

Sulekha Varma, clerk of the course at Market Rasen Racecourse, said “The small team at Market Rasen have worked tirelessly in recent years to improve the racing surface, under the guidance of head groundsman, Steve Bakin.

“This has been especially noticeable in the rise of the racecourse to one of the country’s leading summer jumping venues.

“The quality of horses running Market Rasen and their subsequent achievements is testament to the ongoing improvements, instigated while Nick Patton was clerk of the course and continued in the past year.”
