Scotland’s Premier Racecourse is home to the Scottish Grand National in April, and the Ayr Gold Cup Festival in September. As a dual purpose track, Ayr Racecourse holds both National Hunt and Flat fixtures, it stages year round racing, with 27 days racing to choose from in 2009.
The 6 furlong Ayr Gold Cup, run at the ‘Western Meeting’ in September is one of the most competitive sprints in the Flat Racing calendar, attracting large crowds from all over the country.
Such is the lure of this race that trainers of the standing of Jack Berry have been moved to declare that winning this race was the highlight of his career.
