One lucky winner will receive the Golden Ticket and race to VIP status on Monday, 30th May with three of their friends.

A race will be named in honour of the fortunate Golden Ticket holder and they will have the rare opportunity to present the trophy to the winning connections.

As well as this, they will all receive VIP admission and race cards, a three course meal a bottle of wine in the Voltigeur Restaurant, plus a luxury gift, all complimentary from Redcar Racecourse.

So how do you win this great prize? Anyone who pre-books tickets for the Zetland Gold Cup raceday by 4pm on Wednesday 25th May will automatically be entered into the draw to win the Golden Ticket, whether they book in person, on line or by phone.

The prize draw is in celebration of the historical Zetland Gold Cup, a one and a quarter mile Heritage Handicap race which has been going since the end of the Second World War. It attracts high profile trainers; 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. I can’t wait to meet the Golden Ticket winner and give them a day to remember!”

The North East-based racecourse has also teamed up with local entertainment company Page2Stage, who will be providing a fun filled day for all the family, with popular characters from Disney’s Frozen, including Elsa, Anna and Olaf, as well as appearances from Captain America and Spiderman.
