REDCAR SET TO HOST ONE OF EUROPE’S RICHEST RACES FOR TWO-YEAR-OLDS ON SATURDAY

Tuesday 29 September 2009

The totepool Two-Year-Old Trophy – one of the most valuable races in Europe for juveniles – tops a quality seven-race programme at Redcar this Saturday (October 3), which is scheduled to begin at 2-10 p.m.

First held in 1989, the prestigious totepool Two-year-Old Trophy offers guaranteed prize money of £150,000 and is one of a pair of Listed race on Saturday’s card. Contested over the straight six furlongs, the race is once again supported by totepool and is sure to attract the maximum field of 23 from an original entry of 270 made back in April. Won in the past by top-class horses such as Somnus, Captain Rio, Pipalong, Peak To Creek and Misu Bond, the last two races have been won by horses trained at Lambourn in Berkshire by Stan Moore - Dubai Dynamo in 2007 and last year’s winner, Total Gallery.

 
Saturday’s strong card also features The Boddingtons Redcar Straight-Mile Championship Final. This £30,000 Handicap contest is the culmination of a series of qualifying races held at Redcar throughout the summer over the straight mile, while the seventh running of The Guisborough Stakes as a Listed race over seven furlongs continues to offer prize money of £40,000. The opening race – a contest for maiden two-year-olds – is supported by The European Breeders’ Fund.
 
 The big screen at Redcar will enable racegoers to view the proceedings on the track as well as showing the action from Newmarket, featuring The totesport.com Cambridgeshire Heritage Handicap and the Group 1 Kingdom Of Bahrain Sun Chariot Stakes.
 
Redcar’s general manager, Amy Fair said “This is the day in the year when we really come under the spotlight from the horse racing industry. We are looking forward to what should be a wonderful afternoon’s racing”.
