Great Yarmouth Racecourse stays on track
Rigby Taylor’s amenity products have played a key role in Great Yarmouth Racecourse being named the best flat course in the Racecourse Association’s prestigious grounds staff awards 2018.
Combined with high-class groundscare routines led by head groundsman Richard Bradley, the use of a host of products as well as continual advice and support by Rigby Taylor this year saw the Great Yarmouth team succeed with a “well-covered and great-coloured” course during a racing season that experienced the hottest summer on record.
According to Clerk of the Course, Richard Aldous: “We use a range of Rigby Taylor products to ensure the track consistently looks and performs superbly, and we’ve been especially pleased with the combination of using the Fineturf 6-0-18 and PolyPro 25-3-15 slow-release fertilisers and Microlite Activ-8 (both 12-0-12 and 6-0-24).
“Together these have enabled us to produce a track that particularly this year has received laudatory comments from jockeys, trainers and owners.”
