Redcar Racecourse pulls in the holiday crowds

Tuesday 14 April 2009

REDCAR Racecourse marked a new era with its highest Easter Monday crowd for six years.

Six thousand people – plus children – piled into the Tees Valley racecourse for what is traditionally the start of its racing season. The family enclosure was especially popular.

 
For new general manager Amy Fair, it was a flying start.
 
“Aside from a few minor teething problems, it was a fantastic day for the racecourse. The feedback from our visitors has been most encouraging,” she said.
 
“We have particularly been pushing how racing offers real value for money – at Redcar our prices start from £5 for adults and, of course, accompanied children under 16 are always admitted free of charge.”
 
The racing included the launch of the season-long £100,000 Boddingtons Straight Mile Championship Series.
 
New for 2009, the racecourse’s revamped website – www.redcarracing.co.uk offers the convenience of online purchasing of tickets for all racing days.
 
A full list of fixtures – 18 more from now until October - can be viewed at www.redcarracing.co.uk. There are generous discounts for groups of visitors.
