雷德卡賽馬會呼籲為慶祝150周年紀念日提供回憶

經過多年在雷德卡沙地上的比賽,第一次會議於1872年8月9日在賽馬場舉行。

第一次世界大戰期間被用作機場,第二次世界大戰期間被用作軍營,直到20世紀60年代,它一直被嚴重忽視。

現在正值其第150年,賽馬場希望聽到人們多年來的回憶,以紀念這一里程碑。

Zetland的名字一直是Redcar賽馬場的代名詞。1981年,Zetland的第四任侯爵Lawrence Mark Dundas接替他的父親,成為這個海濱賽馬場的主席和總經理。

"他說:"那時我對賽馬沒有真正的興趣,但我想盡力保持家族的傳統,而且我很快就學會了。

"隨着時間的推移,我對賽馬產生了熱愛,我為我的家族成員在這麼長的時間裡在雷德卡的發展中所扮演的角色感到無比自豪。"

現任澤特蘭勳爵在2018年賽季結束時以84歲高齡卸任主席一職,交給了約翰-桑德森。

總經理艾米-費爾說。"雷德卡賽馬場是社區的核心,它對幾代提賽德人和整個更廣泛的地區意味着很多。

"這就是為什麼我們非常希望聽到你在雷德卡賽馬場的個人亮點,以此來幫助我們慶祝我們歷史上的這個重要里程碑。"


Following years of racing on the Redcar sands, the first meeting was held at the racecourse on 9 August 1872.

Used as an airfield during World War One and an army camp in World War Two, it was heavily neglected until the 1960s.

Now in its 150th year, the racecourse would like to hear memories from people over the years to mark the milestone.

The Zetland name has been synonymous with Redcar Races. Lawrence Mark Dundas the fourth Marquess of Zetland took over from his father as chairman and managing director of the seaside racecourse in 1981.

"I had no real interest in racing back then, but I wanted to do my best to maintain the family tradition, and I learned quickly," he said.

"Over time, I developed a love of horse racing and I'm immensely proud of the part successive members of my family have played in the development of Redcar over such a long time."

The current Lord Zetland stepped down as chairman at the age of 84 at the end of the 2018 season, handing over to John Sanderson.

General manager, Amy Fair, said: "Redcar Racecourse is at the heart of the community and it has meant so much to generations of Teesside people and across the wider region.

"That's why we are so keen to hear about your personal highlights from coming racing at Redcar as a way of helping us to celebrate this important milestone in our history."
