Course Details

A left-handed, oval track which is approximately a mile and three quarters in extent.

Races between six furlongs and one mile are run on the straight track. The course is perfectly flat, and with the exception of its two sharp bends, provides a very fair test. The course drains well, and when conditions are riding fast, it can sometimes be difficult to make up ground from off the pace.

Redcar Racecourse offers around 18 days of horseracing from April to November. Redcar Racecourse is steeped in history and can trace its beginnings back to the early part of 18th Century, when racing was staged on Redcar beach. The racecourse as we now know it was established in 1872, and the racecourse is proud to be located in the heart of Redcar.

Highlights of the racing season include the Racing UK Zetland Gold Cup run on the last Bank Holiday Monday in May, and the Two-Year-Old Trophy, the Listed Guisborough Stakes, and the final of the Racing UK Straight Mile Challenge Series in October.


Owners’ & Trainers’ Facilities

Located on the 2nd floor of the Petch Stand the Owners’ & Trainers’ Lounge, race viewing box, and Classic Suite are the main facilities for owners with runners on the day. 

A complimentary light meal for owners with runners on the day is served until 3pm in the Classic Suite Dining Room, and complimentary tea and coffee is served all day. 

In addition, the Paddock Suite Bar is shared between Owners & Trainers and Annual Badge Holders. 

There is no formal dress code at Redcar although racegoers are encouraged to wear smart, casual clothing.

Badge Allocation

Redcar Racecourse now operates the new RCA PASS card scheme.

Horses that are declared to run will receive 6 complimentary Owners & Trainers badges per horse for use on the day. 

Additional Owners’ badges, up to 14 in total, can be purchased at half price (Premier Day - £8.00 / Regular Day - £6.50) and this should be arranged prior to your arrival at the course. 

Owners can make any necessary arrangements for their badges by using the new PASS card concierge service at https://www.rcapass.com  or email info@redcarracing.co.uk

When you collect your daily Owners’ badges you will be given your complimentary racecards and 6 vouchers per horse for a complimentary light meal served in the Classic Suite, which is located adjacent to the Owners’ & Trainers’ Lounge on the 2nd floor of the Petch Stand.

On racedays our Owners’ & Trainers’ Desk is managed by Elissa Cummings.  Elissa undertakes a similar role at the majority of the Yorkshire courses and so will be a familiar face.
