“The ladies looked magnificent in their outfits and there were some really competitive races so overall it was a wonderful day for all the family.”

The racecourse also teamed up with Teesside Hospice to showcase a ‘Dress For Less’ fashion show. All of the outfits have been sourced through the Teesside Hospice shops, including the Saltburn vintage shop, brand boutique in Yarm, and £1 shop in Redcar, proving you can dress for less.
