SO successful is Ladies’ Day in the summer that Redcar Racecourse hosts around glamorous occasion – a Ladies and Gents’ Evening. Alongside the horse racing on Saturday (24 AUGUST), there are ‘best dressed’ competitions to enter, a fun casino and free treatments in the Orange Kerr Hair & Beauty ‘pamper zone’.

Local band Chilli & The Peanuts provide the live music during the evening and after racing.

As during Ladies’ Day, there are major prizes for the ‘best dressed’ racegoers. The judges mingle with the crowds, so everyone is in with a chance of winning.
  • The ‘best dressed lady’ receives a DKNY ladies’ watch from Market Cross Jewellers, a bespoke hat from Chic Hats and a bouquet of flowers from Flowers by Hannah.
  • The ‘best dressed gent’ wins a £400 men’s suit, shirt and tie from Middlesbrough’s Bakers Tailoring and an Accurist men’s chronograph watch from Market Cross Jewellers.
  • The ‘best dressed couple’ get His & Her’s watches from Market Cross Jewellers, a photo shoot, five edited images on CD and £40 to spend on prints at Capture Le Coeur Photography, £50 of beauty treatments from Orange Kerr Hair & Beauty and a bouquet of flowers from Flowers by Hannah.
Judging of the competitions will take place after the third, fourth and fifth races.
Redcar Racecourse’s general manager Amy Fair said: “We have wonderful prizes which have been kindly and generously donated by local shops and businesses. It gives a great incentive for all our visitors to dress to impress so that they can be in with a chance of winning.”
Former jockey Jimmy Bleasdale will be hosting a behind-the-scenes tour of the racecourse including a visit to the Weighing Room.  The tour will start shortly after 3.30pm in front of the Petch Stand.
The first race on Saturday 24 August is at 5.30pm, with the finale at 8pm. Gates open at 3.30pm.
The feature horse race is the Redcar Straight-Mile Championship Handicap.
After Saturday, the major highlight for the rest of the year at Redcar Racecourse is on Saturday 5 October – the seasonal climax with the £150,000 Two Year Old Trophy, the Listed Guisborough Stakes and the final of the Straight Mile Championship Series.
