The Zetland Gold Cup is one of the big races of the season at Redcar and Spiderman was joined by queens and princess to make it a real family day.


The superhero was even pictured having a bet with veteran bookmaker Johnny Ridley.


“I’ve been all over the world but Redcar’s a great place to come racing,” said Spiderman before trying - and failing - to climb up railings to get into the members’ bar.


He ended up in the first-aid office with the Queen who needed a plaster on a blister because her shoes were tight.


The superhero is also pictured with sisters Maddie, Sophie and Hannah Booth, from Guisborough.
