REDCAR Racecourse stages its most important horse racing occasion of the year on Saturday (2 OCTOBER) when not far short of a quarter of a million pounds will be won.

The eyes of the racing world will be focussed on the Tees Valley racecourse – and the cameras of Channel 4 will be present – for one of the most eagerly awaited races for the youngest racehorses in Britain and Ireland.

The Totepool Two-Year-Old Trophy, raced over threequarters of a mile, attracts entries from hundreds of horses. But only 23 can take part.
The race, for two-year-old colts and fillies, is worth no less than £150,000, and the prize is much sought after by racehorse owners and trainers on both sides of the Irish Sea.
In 2009 the Tote Two Year Old Trophy was won be 20/1 shot Lucky Like (pictured).
As well as that feature race, there is the sixth running of the John Smith’s Redcar Straight-Mile Championship Final for which horses have been racing to qualify during the spring and summer.
Completing a trio of top class races, there is the historic Guisborough Stakes, which is worth £35,000 in prize-money.
Redcar Racecourse’s general manager Amy Fair said: “This is the day in the year when we really come under the spotlight from the horse racing industry.
“We are delighted, as always, to welcome Channel 4 to our racecourse, which means that we will be seen by more than one million viewers across the country.”
On Saturday 2 October, there are seven horse races between 2.10pm and 5.45pm.
After Saturday, the final fixture of 2010 at Redcar Racecourse is on Friday afternoon, 15 October.
