REDCAR HOSTS KIDS LOVE THE RACES ROADSHOW

Friday 2 August 2013

New interactive roadshow for kids on course on Saturday 10th August.

There aren’t many places that you can take the kids for free in the school holidays but Redcar Racecourse is a great exception with children under 16 admitted free of charge throughout the year. And there’s never been a better time to visit than next weekend (Saturday 10thAugust) when the course will be hosting a new interactive ‘Kids love the Races’ roadshow designed to entertain and engage children in the sport.

 
Here, budding young jockeys can enjoy finding out more about the equine and human stars of the sport, design their own racing silks and take a look at some specialist racing equipment. They’ll also be able to check out what racehorses eat to keep them in tip-top condition and learn about what happens at the track.
 
And the fun and games don’t stop there as the course will also be providing further entertainment in the form of bouncy castles, face painting and balloon modeling. We also have our stilt walkers and magician who will be mingling in the crowds, in addition to the thrilling action on track.

General Manager, Amy Fair added “Our Caribbean Carnival Day is a great day for all of the family to come racing.  With the great racing, live steel band, and Caribbean fancy dress competition there’s something for everyone. We’re looking forward to welcoming the Kids Love The Races Roadshow – it’s a super initiative to get children of all ages excited about our sport and combined with our behind the scenes tour hosted by ex jockey Jimmy Bleasdale you really will be able to find out all about what goes on at the racecourse. “
 
 
Rod Street, Chief Executive of Great British Racing said, “Racing provides fantastic entertainment and sporting action for all the family and is one of the few leisure activities where kids go free. As well as the thrill of watching horses racearound the track at over
40 mph this new, interactive roadshow will help kids in Redcar and Cleveland get the most out of a great day at the races.”
