REDCAR RACECOURSE UNDER STARTER'S ORDERS FOR THE NEW FLAT RACING SEASON

Friday 27 March 2009

THE starting stalls are about to fly open at Redcar Racecourse for the first time in 2009. The Tees Valley racecourse has a new management team and an exciting schedule of 19 racing fixtures between Easter Monday and October.

With almost half of the meetings at weekends, in the evening or on public holidays, there is plenty of choice for seasoned racegoers and once-a-year visitors alike.

 
New for 2009, the racecourse’s revamped website – www.redcarracing.co.uk - is now offering the convenience of online purchasing of tickets for all racing days.
 
The racecourse’s new general manager Amy Fair said: “Easter Monday always gets the racing season at Redcar Racecourse off with a bang.
 
“As well as our regular visitors, it’s a splendid opportunity for people who maybe haven’t been racing before to try out the sport for the first time.”
 
The highlights of the 2009 racing season at Redcar Racecourse include:
 
  • Easter Monday 13 April – Bank Holiday racing and the launch of the season-long £100,000 Boddingtons Straight Mile Championship Series;
  • Whit Monday 25 May - £50,000 Zetland Gold Cup day;
  • Saturday 20 June – Ladies’ Day;
  • Thursday 2 July – Irish Night;
  • Sunday 19 July – Family Fun Day;
  • Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August - Summer Weekend – Caribbean Carnival and School’s Out respectively;
  • Saturday 29 August - Party Night with Commitments concert after racing;
  • Saturday 3 October – Seasonal finale with the Two Year Old Trophy, Listed Guisborough Stakes and the final of the Boddingtons Straight Mile Championship Series.
 
The first race of seven on Monday 13 April is scheduled for 2pm, with admission gates open from midday. The finale is at 5.30pm.
