Raceday Information – Monday 31st May, 2021

It's our prestigious Zetland Gold Cup meeting on Monday 31st May.

Under the Government's current "roadmap" we are looking forward to welcoming a limited number of spectators to Redcar for this meeting.

While social distancing remains in place we are unable to open up all areas of the Racecourse as normal and so there will be a revised Grandstand Enclosure in operation.

We are offering a limited number of tickets for visitors to join us in our main Grandstand Enclosure which has two fully covered grandstands and fantastic views of the track. Full betting facilities are also provided. If you wish to book please click here

Further to the BHA’s updated Covid Guidelines we’re pleased to announce that from 17th May all C-19 Grandstand Enclosure ticket holders will be able to:

  • Watch the horses in the Parade Ring and cheer your horse into the Winners’ Enclosure
  • Have great views of the racing action on the course
  • Buy a drink from the Malton, Middleham and Zetland Bars to drink outside
  • Buy something to eat from the Middleham Bar or mobile vending units
  • Have a bet and (hopefully) collect your winnings!

There is also no need to wear a mask when outside. However masks must be worn at all times whilst you are indoors, unless you are eating, drinking, or have medical dispensation.

We have restricted capacity and measures in place to maintain the safety of all attending.

Tickets are available for all our race meetings in May and June and MUST be booked in advance. BUY TICKETS



Face coverings must be worn at all times whilst indoors, unless specific exemptions apply. Face coverings should be triple layered (in line with specifications set out by the BHA) to provide maximum protection.

Social distancing still remains extremely important and we cannot emphasis strongly enough how important it is that everyone continues to apply social distancing correctly. The Covid-19 virus remains deadly (for many), phenomenally contagious and it is not going away anytime soon!  

At Redcar we apply the 2m-rule and so if you cannot distance yourself at least 2m from other people at all times, and we advise all attendees to wash and sanitize their hands frequently. 

The NHS Track and Trace System is in place at Redcar Racecourse.  All attendees are requested to fulfil the requirements of the app. A QR code will be prominently displayed at the entrance which individuals will need to scan using the NHS Covid-19 app on their smartphone to register their attendance for Track and Trace.

The arrivals process will be slower than usual due to the testing procedures in place, so please allow yourself some extra time.

We have 2 Green Zone testing sites for key workers at Redcar which are as follows:

  • Main Entrance, off Redcar Lane – testing for jockeys, BHA officials, raceday staff.  Satnav postcode TS10 2FD.
  • Course Enclosure, off West Dyke Road – horsebox drivers, stable staff, horse welfare team. Satnav postcode TS10 4JH.

For information regarding testing site locations and the arrivals process, click here. Please ensure that you have undertaken and passed the online Racing2Learn Covid-19 training module and completed the online BHA medical questionnaire prior to arrival and present at the testing station with a valid photo-ID.
