Friday 2 August 2013

SHIVER me timbers and prepare to board! Dust off those pirate costumes and those grass skirts once more as Redcar Racecourse hosts its popular Caribbean party on Saturday, August 10.

Enjoy a cocktail or dance to the rhythm of the steel band at the Tees Valley track, where both children and adults can dress up in their best outfits to wow the judges in the Caribbean Fancy Dress Competition.
One of Redcar’s most popular racedays, racegoers are advised to arrive early and the programme wouldn’t be complete without ex-jockey Jimmy Bleasdale also conducting his popular Behind The Scenes tour of the racecourse.
Including a visit to the weighing room, the tour will start at 12.15pm. People interested in taking part are asked to meet in front of the Petch Stand.
As usual, there will be lots of entertainment for children, including clowns, face painting, stilt walkers, bouncy castles and slides.
On the track, the feature contest of a seven race meeting is the £10,000 Download The Free Racing UK App Handicap Stakes - the third race on the card at 3.10pm and a qualifier race for the prestigious final of the Straight-Mile Championship in October.
Seven furlongs will face the runners in the Alec & Mary Golden Wedding Anniversary Handicap Stakes, which is staged at 3.45pm, aimed at horses aged three-years-old and upwards and is also worth £10,000.
Gates open at noon and racing gets under way at 2pm.
