8 Races on Help for Heroes Family Fun Day on Sunday 18th July

Friday 16 July 2010

There’s something for all the family this Sunday at Redcar (July 18) – the second leg of the 2010 ‘Yorkshire Racing Summer Festival’, aimed to showcase all that is best regarding racing in the county.


This special Family Fun Day forms part of Redcar’s support for The Help For Heroes charity for our armed forces. Prior to racing, there will be a colourful start to the proceedings, with a procession of standard bearers from The Royal British Legion. There will also be a cheque presentation for £1,500 from Help For Heroes to The Yorkshire Regiment, which represents the amount collected during the recent homecoming parade through Redcar.
The gates open at 12 noon and there’s a plethora of attractions for children in the Course Enclosure, including fun fair and amusements, bouncy castle, giant slides, a children’s entertainer and stilt walkers. Admission in to the Course Enclosure is only £5, with accompanied children under 16 years of age admitted free of charge.
Racing begins at 2-10 p.m. with The European Breeders’ Fund Peter Mitchell Loved Racing At Redcar Maiden Stakes, a contest for juveniles over seven furlongs, while the highlights of Sunday’s racing programme include The Sky Bet Supporting The Yorkshire Racing Summer Festival Handicap Stakes (a contest for three-year-olds sprinters), The Welcome to Yorkshire A Whole Lot More Claiming Stakes, The Redcar Cricket Club Handicap Stakes (nine furlongs) Division 1 & 2, The Yorkshire Radio Handicap Stakes (six furlongs) and The Help For Heroes Fillies’ Handicap Stakes (one mile)
Yorkshire Radio will be broadcasting ‘live’ from the course, as part of their commitment to the Yorkshire Racing Festival. There’s a special racecard competition each day of the Festival up to and including the final day at Pontefract the following Sunday, with the overall winner receiving a luxury stay at the new 5-star Cedar Court Grand Hotel & Spa in the centre of York. The giant screen will enable racegoers to see even more action on the track.
