  • Cheltenham Racecourse

    We are delighted with the five furlong canter down which is used as a route to the starts in the home straight and as the gallop for horses in the breeze-up section of Brightwells sales. The feedback from consignors and jockeys has been very positive and the surface is a big improvement on the woodchip surface that preceded it

  • Nick Patton, Managing Director, Jockey Club Estates

    The Polytrack surfaces offer consistency, longevity and reliability. They are an essential part of Newmarket providing safe training facilities the year round

  • Jonjo O’Neill

    Martin Collins surfaces are the best you can get and we highly recommend them. We use them here on the training gallops at Jackdaws Castle. The surface can be altered to suit the type of work the horses are doing and are ever so easy to maintain. The level of service that the Martin Collins team give is brilliant.  They're always available for a word of advice and come out to check the gallops on a regular basis. I can't recommend them highly enough.

  • Greg Rudolph, CEO, Hawkesbury Race Club

    "The Polytrack surface works well at Hawkesbury Race Club where we have cold winters and very hot summers. The general consensus is very positive with excellent feedback and the Polytrack is performing well." 

  • Nicky Henderson

    “At Seven Barrows horse safety and performance is our priority. Training on the Polytrack gallops here at Lambourn gives our horses confidence and enables all year round exercise.”

  • Paul Nicholls

    “We have three Martin Collins all weather, synthetic gallops and they are essential for our year round training. When investing in a surface, the smart money is on Martin Collins.”

  • Ballarat Racecourse Australia

    Ballarat Turf Club Chief Executive Lachlan McKenzie, ""To be able to move last Sunday’s Mother’s Day meeting onto the new Polytrack after 70mls of rain on Thursday and Friday just shows how important these tracks are because that race meeting would have been lost. We wouldn’t have been able to run on the turf. So, its proven its worth from day one. From a training perspective, it’s a huge bonus for our trainers. It gives them the opportunity to work their horses in all weathers in a circular direction."

  • Royal Randwick Racecourse, Australia

    Royal Randwick trainer Mark Newnham “Horses are comfortable from their first gallop on Polytrack, they take very even strides, and they are not getting unbalanced and fatiguing on it which can cause injuries."

    Royal Randwick Trainer John O’Shea said the Polytrack would greatly benefit horses, owners and trainers.

    “Randwick has always been a very good training centre but now it is by far and away the best training centre in Australia. It has now got a top-of-the-range artificial surface that allows horses to work in any type of weather, and importantly more safely. This gives us an opportunity to work horses appropriately without having to trial on a regular basis which is a win-win for owners. “With the Polytrack you have the best and most safe surface to ensure your horses remain sound.”
