The eyes of the horseracing world focus on Redcar Racecourse this Saturday

Monday 29 September 2014

Redcar Racecourse stages its most important sporting occasion of the year on Saturday (4 OCTOBER) when over 225,000 will be won by the successful racehorses.

The eyes of the racing world will be focused 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 Listed Totepool Two-Year-Old Trophy, raced over three-quarters of a mile, attracts entries from hundreds of horses. But only 23 can take part.
 
The race, for two-year-old colts and fillies, will be worth a minimum of £150,000 and the prize is much sought after by racehorse owners and trainers on both sides of the Irish Sea.
 
As well as that feature race, there is the tenth running of the Redcar Straight-Mile Championship Final – sponsored by Racing UK - for which horses have been racing to qualify during the spring and summer.
 
Completing a trio of top class races, there is the historic Listed Totescoop6  EBF Guisborough Stakes, which is worth £40,000 in prize-money.
 
Redcar Racecourse’s general manager Amy Fair said: “This is the day in the year when we really come into the sporting spotlight.
 
“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 4 October, there are seven horse races starting at 2pm. 
 
General admission on Saturday 4 October
 
The racecourse’s website offers the convenience of online purchasing of tickets for all racing days. There is also a guide to where to eat and drink at the racecourse – and discount vouchers can be downloaded.
 
Redcar’s ‘Course Enclosure’ – which offers a café, bar and picnic area – costs just £5 for adults and £4 for students and pensioners on the Saturday. The Grandstand Enclosure is £15 admission. Accompanied children are admitted free of charge.
