Friday action commemorates former trainer Sam Hall and celebrates 50 years of the Injured Jockeys' Fund

Monday 13 October 2014

Redcar’s season on the Flat continues with an eight-race programme this Friday (October 17), scheduled to start at 1-55 p.m. with the opening two races are also named in honour of the 50th anniversary this year of The Injured Jockeys’ Fund.

Racegoers will have the opportunity to purchase IJF merchandise, including the popular Christmas cards.

 

The Sam Hall Memorial Handicap Stakes – the longest race of the afternoon - over one mile and three-quarters commemorates the great Yorkshire trainer, who passed away in 1977. He trained over 1,000 winners during an illustrious career which began in 1949, achieving a lot of success at Redcar, including winning the Zetland Gold Cup on four occasions.

 

Regular sponsors, Market Cross Jewellers put their name to the afternoon’s other contest for maiden two-year-olds in association with The EBF, while Lady Amateur Riders take part in the final race, a Handicap contest over one mile and a quarter.

 

As usual, the giant screen situated opposite the stands will enable racegoers to see even more of the action on the track.
