Redcarís 2009 season on the Flat comes to a resounding conclusion this Friday (October 16), with a seven-race programme scheduled to start at 2-10 p.m. The meeting has attracted a bumper number of 282 entries at the five-day stage.

The opening race is a handicap contest over one mile and a quarter for lady amateur riders supported by The Amateur Jockeys’ Association of Great Britain, while the fourth running of The Sam Hall Memorial Handicap Stakes over one mile and three-quarters commemorates the great Yorkshire trainer, who passed away in 1977. He trained over 1,000 winners during an illustrious career which began in 1949, achieving a lot of success at Redcar, including winning the Zetland Gold Cup on four occasions.

The European Breeders’ Fund support a race for two-year-old maiden fillies over six furlongs, while regular sponsors, Market Cross Jewellers put their name to the afternoon’s Claiming race – a contest for two-year-olds over seven furlongs.
As usual, the giant screen situated opposite the stands will enable racegoers to see even more of the action on the track.
Going into this final meeting of Redcar’s campaign, the course’s top trainer and jockey awards for the season – based on a points system for winners and places obtained - are led by Richard Fahey and Tony Hamilton respectively. However, both competitions look like going down to the ‘wire’, in particular the jockeys’ prize, with Tom Eaves, David Allan, Graham Gibbons and P.J. McDonald all in with a chance of claiming the award.
Redcar’s 19-day 2010 season begins on Easter Monday, April 5, and details of the Annual Badge for next year can be obtained by calling at the racecourse or by telephone on (01642) 484068. Annual badgeholders benefits also includes a number of meetings at other racecourses, along with a selection of Yorkshire County Cricket Club fixtures.
