Redcar Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue located in Redcar, North Yorkshire, England.[1]

Its address is Redcar Racecourse Ltd, Thrush Road, Redcar TS10 2BY.

Redcar is Cleveland's seaside track,[1] oval-shaped and perfectly flat.[1] The present racecourse was opened in 1870,[1] or 1875[2] and prior to this Redcar races were held on the sands at Coatham.[1][2]

The course itself is a left handed oval of just over 1m 4f with relatively tight banked bends. There is also a 3f chute that joins the track where the top bend meets the straight, providing a 1m straight course, purported to be the only 'Straight Mile' in the UK that is straight and level.
