NATIONAL ĎKIDS LOVE THE RACESí ROADSHOW IS ON TRACK Get out those pirate costumes and prepare for a party because itís Caribbean Carnival day at Redcar Racecourse on Saturday (10 AUGUST).

Many families will be making their way to the Tees Valley racecourse 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.


There will be lots of entertainment for children, including clowns, face painting, bouncy castles and slides.


The new ‘Kids Love The Races’ national road-show from Great British Racing is also on track.


The interactive features include giving youngsters the chance to find out more about the equine and human stars of the sport, design their own racing silks, discover more about the lives of racehorses and learn about the goings on at the racecourse.


The feature horse race is the qualifier for the Redcar Straight-Mile Championship.

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


The first race is scheduled for 2pm, with admission gates open at midday.  The last race is at 5.30pm.
