Course Characteristics:

Redcar is a tight oval of 1 mile 5 furlongs with an extended straight for races of up to a mile in length. It is a left handed (anti-clockwise) course and it is perfectly level throughout.

Despite the somewhat tight bends Redcar strongly favours the galloping sort.

Draw advantage: On the straight course those drawn high have an advantage, especially when the stalls are on the stands side.
