‘ROYAL’ REDCAR STAGES MAY BANK HOLIDAY HORSE RACING

Monday 17 May 2010

TWELVE months ago, it became a Royal occasion; and this year Redcar Racecourse will once again be opening its gates for another bumper Bank Holiday crowd at the end of May.

 

The two-day horse racing meeting on Monday 31 and Tuesday 1 June also coincides with the school half-term holidays.
On the opening day, the showpiece event of the spring at the Tees Valley racecourse will be run – the £35,000 Totetrifecta Flexi Betting Zetland Gold Cup.
 
In 2009, the race was won by Kingdom of Fife, owned by The Queen and ridden by the champion jockey Ryan Moore.
 
The one and a quarter mile Class 2 race, which has been run at Redcar Racecourse since shortly after the end of the Second World War, will attract plenty of good horses for spectators to watch.
 
Lots of family entertainment are being laid on too, including bouncy castles, a clown, jazz band and face painters.
 
The racecourse’s general manager Amy Fair said: “It was a fantastically exciting occasion a year ago when the Queen had a winner, so we’re looking forward to welcoming another big crowd to our bank holiday racing on Monday 31 May.
 
“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 entertainment is tremendous value for families seeking an affordable afternoon out when, as always, accompanied under 16s are admitted free of charge.”
 
You can buy tickets for all of our racing days on-line. There is also a guide to where to eat and drink at the racecourse – and discount vouchers can be downloaded.
 
The highlights for the rest of the year at Redcar Racecourse include:
  • Saturday 19 June – Ladies’ Day;
  • Thursday 1 July – Lads’ Night;
  • Sunday 18 July – Family Fun Day;
  • Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 August - Summer Weekend – Caribbean Carnival and Marske Hall Family Fun Day respectively;

  • Saturday 2 October – Seasonal climax with the £150,000 Tote Two Year Old Trophy, £40,000 Listed Guisborough Stakes and the final of the £100,000 John Smith’s Straight Mile Championship Series.
 
The first race of six on Monday 31 May is scheduled for 2.25pm, with admission gates open from midday. The finale is at 5.20pm. On Tuesday 1 June, the first race of seven is at 2.30pm, with the last at 5.30pm.
