The Scottish Racing Academy(SRA) was formed in 2019 to enhance horseracing education and training provision in Scotland and the north of England.

Scottish Racing supports the five racecourses in Scotland. Its vision is to increase the popularity of horseracing as a spectator sport in Scotland.

It promotes and supports the five racecourses in Scotland and assists in the development of a sustainable Scottish horseracing industry and its successes on a global scale.

The five Scottish racecourses are Ayr, Kelso, Musselburgh and Perth and Hamilton Park and unlike anywhere else in the world, horseracing in Scotland is a uniquely year-round sporting attraction.

National Hunt racing takes place at Ayr, Kelso, Musselburgh and Perth and Flat racing takes place at Ayr, Hamilton Park and Musselburgh.

To attract the best horses from the major training centres south of the border, Scottish tracks offer proportionately higher prize money and invest consistently in their hospitality.

Scottish Racing also represents and promotes all sectors of the horse racing industry north of the border by lobbying on political issues in Westminster and Holyrood, generating coverage in the media and social media, updating seasoned racegoers on the latest news and campaigning to attract new audiences.

Scottish Racing plays an integral part in delivering long-term prosperity and sustainability to the sport in Scotland.

It recognises and embraces the support from the Racing Foundation and the wider racing industry for the formation of the Scottish Racing Academy and careers in the Scottish horseracing industry.
