The race is on to find the Golden Ticket

Redcar Racecourse is going all Willy Wonka for its Zetland Gold Cup this May bank holiday.134_CLC_RedcarRacesGoldCup May13

One lucky winner will scoop the top prize on Monday 26th May – the Golden Ticket.

The golden ticket will upgrade the winner and up to three friends to a day they will never forget at the races, with treats such as VIP entry, having a race named in their honour, presenting the trophy to the winners of their race, as well as VIP dining and much more.

The Golden Ticket draw is in celebration of the historical Zetland Gold Cup race, one of the most prestigious at Redcar Racecourse and has been run annually since the end of the Second World War.

The Zetland Gold Cup Day is the first day of a two day meeting with racing also taking place on Tuesday 27th May. The Zetland Gold Cup at Redcar attracts plenty of quality horses and riders and in 2009 the race was won by Kingdom of Fife, a horse owned by Her Majesty The Queen.

Amy Fair, general manager at Redcar Racecourse said: “We’re really looking forward to the Zetland Gold Cup meeting. It’s very exciting to give out a Golden Ticket to one lucky winner and we can’t wait to give our race goer to a day to remember!”

Alongside the six races scheduled to be run on the day the racecourse is also providing a fun filled day for families from local entertainment company Page2stage including Disney Princesses, stilt walkers, face painters and bouncy castles.

Anyone who pre-books tickets for the Zetland Gold Cup raceday by 4pm on Tuesday 20th May will automatically be entered into the draw to win the Golden Ticket, whether they book in person, on line or by phone.
