Racecourse Media Group (RMG) has revealed that the 37 British racecourses affiliated with the company will receive media rights payments of £93.1m for last year.

The payments mark a 9 per cent increase on 2016 and include licence fees from Turf TV, multi-platform subscription channel Racing UK, digital bet-to-view streams, GBI Racing, International, and UK terrestrial TV via ITV.
