Racecourse Media Group Ltd (RMG)
RMG is the holding company responsible for a range of media rights management businesses involving the following racecourses (the shareholders): Aintree, Ascot, Ayr, Bangor, Beverley, Carlisle, Cartmel, Catterick Bridge, Cheltenham, Chester, Epsom Downs, Exeter, Goodwood, Hamilton Park, Haydock Park, Huntingdon, Kelso, Kempton Park, Leicester, Ludlow, Market Rasen, Musselburgh, Newbury, Newmarket, Nottingham, Perth, Pontefract, Redcar, Salisbury, Sandown Park, Stratford-on-Avon, Taunton, Thirsk, Warwick, Wetherby, Wincanton and York.
Racecourse Media Group is the umbrella organisation for those 37 racecourses which hold an interest in Racing UK (Sky 432/Virgin 536/Freeview 231/UPC 411), GBI Racing (international betting shop/digital service) and Racecourse Data Company (licensor of Pre-Race Data). Those 37 racecourses, through Racecourse Media Services, also hold an interest in Turf TV, the betting shop service which is broadcast in more than 10,000 premises.
This is a revolutionary approach to sports media rights management and allows the racecourses to own, manage and exploit their intellectual property across all platforms. All profits are returned to the courses.
