polaroidScottish Racing was formed in 2000 to promote, foster and develop horseracing through Scotland’s five racecourses: Ayr, Hamilton Park, Kelso, Musselburgh and Perth.

By promoting the five racecourses, lobbying on political issues, assisting with media coverage, group sponsorship and providing screen hire, Scottish Racing plays an integral part in delivering long-term prosperity and sustainability to the sport in Scotland.

From children to businessmen, there is something for everyone at the Scottish racecourses.

In the Spotlight

  • Average attendances at all five racecourses increased in 2015, with Perth enjoying the highest average crowd and Kelso the largest increase.
  • Total prize-money offered throughout 2015 exceeded £6.7 million – a new record. The five racecourses punch above their weight in Britain: the four Scottish tracks staging jump racing are each in the top 17 in Britain (out of 40); on the Flat, the three Scottish tracks are each in the top 19 (out of 36).
  • Three of the racecourses were given Gold Standard awards by the Racehorse Owners Association.
  • Ayr Racecourse was given the highest accolade in Scottish tourism and awarded Visit Scotland’s five star visitor attraction status.
  • Hamilton Park won the Racing Post Readers’ Award for dedication to providing exemplary customer service, as well as being shortlisted for operation excellence, at the Racecourse Association’s Showcase Awards.
  • Musselburgh was named by Visit Scotland as being among the top 16 visitor experiences in Scotland.
