Your membership and support of Racing UK through Sky (Channel 426) , Virgin Media (536) , Virgin Media Ireland (411) and Freeview / Youview (261) has many, many benefits, not least live racing from 37 of the top racecourses in the UK.
But perhaps the least-known is that your membership is helping support the racing industry. That’s because Racing UK is 100% owned by 37 shareholder racecourses, which means 100% of our profits are paid directly to these courses.
And in 2016, Racecourse Media Group, whose business interests include Racing UK, Turf TV (betting shop service) and GBI Racing (international betting service), paid £85.5million in licence fees to its 37 Shareholder Racecourses.
Media rights revenues provide our racecourses with the opportunity to invest not only in prize-money, but also in new facilities and developments on-course as well as part-funding the integrity services that underpin the reputation of the sport.
Racing UK, with your help, will continue to support the industry in all that we do as well as continuing to bring you the very best live racing, free racecourse admission through Club Days, discounts, offers and the Racing UK magazine. Thank you for your much valued support.
