RACECOURSE STAGES CARIBBEAN CARNIVAL DAY

Friday 30 July 2010

GET out those pirate costumes and prepare for a party because itís Caribbean Carnival day at Redcar Racecourse on Saturday 7 August.

The event is a start of a gala weekend of horse racing at the Tees Valley racecourse, with the sport continuing on Sunday afternoon with the Marske Hall Family Fun Day.

 
Many families will be making their way to the track because, as always, youngsters aged under 16 are being given free admission when accompanied by an adult.
 
Saturday is when mums, dads and children can all enter the Caribbean Carnival competition by dressing up in a pirate outfit or grass skirt.
 
There will be the opportunity too for grown-ups to sample calypso cocktails and for everyone to dance to the rhythms of a steel band.

The feature horse race of the weekend is the £9,000 John Smith’s Redcar Straight-Mile Championship Handicap – the second race on Saturday afternoon.

 
Racing gets under way on Saturday at 1.55pm, with the closing race at 5.20pm. 
 
The highlights for the rest of 2010 at Redcar Racecourse include:
 
  • Saturday 28 August – 80s Party Night;
  • Saturday 2 October – Seasonal climax with the £150,000 Tote Two Year Old Trophy, £35,000 Listed Guisborough Stakes and the final of the £100,000 John Smith’s Straight Mile Championship Series.
