BLOOMIN’ MARVELLOUS … A Hat-Trick of Gold Medals for Redcar Racecourse

Thursday 25 September 2014

IT’S coming up roses at Redcar Racecourse which is celebrating being given a gold award for its blooms for the third year running.

The Tees Valley track was awarded a gold medal for its flowers in the Northumbria in Bloom awards which was held in Newcastle.

The racecourse’s efforts also contributed to the town of Redcar taking the community organisation’s silver award in the coastal resorts category.

Racecourse general manager Amy Fair said she was delighted with the award, saying that it was all due to the efforts of the racecourse’s gardener Lee Sweeney, the track manager Stephen Berry and the rest of the racecourse team who get involved with planting the beds in the spring and autumn.

“Lee, Stephen and the whole team have done a fantastic job, and it’s wonderful that this has been recognised with this Northumbria in Bloom gold award for the third year,” she said. The major highlight for the rest of the year at Redcar Racecourse, which offers the cheapest paid-for tickets of any British racecourse, is coming up on Saturday 4 October – the seasonal climax with the £150,000 Totepool Two Year Old Trophy, the Listed Totepool Guisborough Stakes and the final of the Racing UK Straight Mile Championship Series.

The racecourse website offers the convenience of online purchasing of tickets for all racing days. There is also a guide to where to eat and drink at the racecourse – and discount vouchers can be downloaded.

Redcar’s ‘Course Enclosure’ – which offers a café, bar and picnic area – costs just £5 for adults and £4 for students and pensioners on the Saturday. The Grandstand Enclosure is £15 admission. Accompanied children are admitted free of charge.
