2-6 Whitletts, Ayr, Ayrshire, Scotland, KA8 0JE. Tel: 01292 264179

AYR races stages horse racing all year round and is the most westerly course in Great Britain. There are two main highlights; on the Flat it’s the three-day Western meeting in the second half of September, where the big race is the famous old sprint handicap, the Ayr Gold Cup. Past winners include Roman Warrior and Lochsong. Over jumps the feature meeting at Ayr races is the two-day Scottish Grand National fixture in mid-April, which is normally run a week after the Grand National. Only the legendary Red Rum has competed the Aintree-Ayr double in the same season although Little Polveir and Earth Summit are others to have won both races in separate seasons.
