Yorkshire's seaside track, it is oval-shaped and perfectly flat with a circuit of a mile and three-quarters. The Zetland Gold Cup in May and the valuable Two-Year-Old Trophy in October are the main features in a long season.
Described as a fair track, the present racecourse was opened in the 1870s and prior to this Redcar races were held on the sands by the sea.
Flat left-hand galloping track which joins the 1m straight course with 5f to run. The draw is insignificant but in soft ground the stand rails can give a decided advantage.
