Redcar stages Flat racing from April to November and is a flat, galloping track with a one mile straight course. Left-handed and about 1m4f in circumference, it has a 3f run from the final turn to finishing line. The draw seems to make little difference nowadays as the stalls are often placed in the centre of the straight course.
There has been racing on the site since the 1870s (they raced previously on the nearby beach at Coatsham) but it is not the easiest course to get to. Eight miles east of Middlesbrough, by road leave the A19 for the A174 and follow the signs. Redcar Central station is a 10-minute walk away.
The 6f Two-Year-old Trophy, a valuable sales races, is the North Yorkshire seaside track’s most important contest. Staged in October, it has seen some very big gambles landed down the years and Tim Easterby has won it three times in the last 15 years with well-weighted juveniles. The Guisborough Stakes is another Listed contest staged on the course while the Zetland Gold Cup was one of the north’s big early-season handicaps at one time, though has lost a little of its glamour in recent years.
Michael Dods and Bryan Smart’s runners do best at Redcar, though Tim Walford and Tony Coyle’s older horses are often to the fore in lower-grade handicaps. The aforementioned Tim Easterby is the track’s leading trainer but you need to monitor the market before investing.
