Redcar Racecourse is an acclaimed thoroughbred horse racing establishment that is situated in Redcar, North Yorkshire. The venue, which has been around since 1870, hosts an eclectic range of Listed and Handicap meets from April through to November. The most notable of the fixtures is without doubt the Two-Year-Old Trophy.
The Two-Year-Old Trophy is a flat horse race that is open to two-year-old horses. The race is run over a distance of 5 furlongs and 217 yards, which equates to 1,204 metres.
The race, which is traditionally held in October, was established in 1993, making it one of the more well-known races to run at Redcar.
One of the quickest horses to complete the track was 2004 winner Obe Gold, who concluded the race in 1:08.84. Misu Bond was another, who in 2005 finished in 1:09.15.
When it comes to notable jockeys, it would be hard to write this race feature without mentioning Barry McHugh and Silvestre De Sousa; two jockeys who have enjoyed success at this Redcar event twice. McHugh rode to victory on Darkanna in 2017 and Summer Sands in 2019. Silvestre De Sousa won the race with Danum Dancer in 2006 and Ladies Are Forever in 2010.
