Based in North Yorkshire, Redcar’s perfectly flat track was opened in 1870. It is a left-handed oval shaped course with tight bends making positioning critical. It is widely believed that Redcar is the only racecourse in the UK with a perfectly “Straight Mile” that is level.
The racecourse is situated one mile from the beach which makes it a wonderful escape for a weekend. Redcar hosts the Zetland Gold Cup in May, the Two-Year-Old Trophy in October which is also on the same day as the Guisborough Stakes. The well-known Limato was a previous winner of the Two-Year-Old Trophy.
