More than 9,000 people are expected to descend on Market Rasen Racecourse today for one of its most popular jump racing occasions of the year, the Rand Farm Park Boxing Day At The Races meeting.
There’s a packed programme of jump racing, including the annual Clugston Lincolnshire National. Like the ultimate Aintree race – the Randox Health Grand National - stamina is crucial for the Lincolnshire National, which is run over a distance of three and a half miles.
“Boxing Day horse racing at Market Rasen Racecourse is as much a part of Christmas as turkey, mulled wine and crackers. 26th December is always a very affordable festive day out for families over Christmas.
"I would recommend people to set off in plenty of time to get to the racecourse today. The racecourse is clearly signed, with a number of routes in place and we urge all visitors to follow them and to get here early.”
The gates of the racecourse will be open from 10.05am when the fun begins for a first race time of 12.05pm. The finale is at 3.25pm.
