There’s something for all the family this Sunday at Redcar (July 21) – the 2nd leg of the 2013 ‘Go Racing In Yorkshire Summer Festival’, aimed to showcase all that is best regarding racing in the county. This special Family Fun Day support's Help For Heroes and the Felix Fund.

The gates open at 12 noon and there’s a host of attractions for children in the Course Enclosure, such as fairground rides, bouncy castles, slides, children’s entertainers, face painting and stilt walkers.

The Felix Fund and bomb disposal team will be on hand and racegoers can try on a bomb disposal outfit and have a go at donating practice bombs with the remote control bomb disposal device. There’s also a Yorkshire regiment Stand, along with a ‘Help For Heroes’ merchandise stand, and collections will be made for the charity.

 A special preview of racing in the winners’ enclosure some 45 minutes prior to the action on the track and there will be paddock commentaries prior to each race.
Racing on Sunday begins at 2-10 p.m. with a contest for two-year-olds – The Yorkshire Regiment British Stallion Studs EBF Maiden Stakes. The highlights of the racing programme include The Sky Bet Supporting The Yorkshire Racing Summer Festival Handicap Stakes (a contest for three-year-old sprinters), The Infinity Ecomax Tyres Handicap Stakes (six furlongs), The Help For Heroes Fillies’ Handicap Stakes (one mile) and The Redcar Cricket Club Handicap Stakes (nine furlongs).
The final race is Round Five of a new series for young riders this season - The Go Racing In Yorkshire Future Stars Apprentice Series – held on the eight Yorkshire courses which stage Flat racing and culminating in a Final at Doncaster in November. Sunday’s race is a Handicap Stakes over one mile and three-quarters – the longest race of the afternoon. After the first four legs of the series, Gary Mahon leads the way with 24 points, followed by Charles Bishop and Matthew Hopkins – both with 18 points.
Racegoers will be able to obtain information regarding some of the local racing syndicates and racehorse ownership from the ‘Go Racing in Yorkshire’ mobile information unit.
