The early summer highlight is Tennent’s Raceday on Wednesday May 18 which sees the inaugural running of the British Stallion Studs Rothesay EBF Fillies Stakes, a Listed Race.
Run over one mile two furlongs for four year olds upwards there will be £50,000 in prize-money on offer and this should attract some of the leading trainers from the south who will send their horses and top jockeys north to plunder our riches.
There is also a fine supporting card on the afternoon and a live band after racing so a superb midweek day out.
Into June and we have a terrific double header with Tennent’s Racenight on Friday June 17. Television and radio star Vernon Kay will be playing a not-to-be-missed 90 minute dj set after racing in the Ayrshire Suite within the Grandstand and he should be a huge attraction on what will be a fabulous summer night of racing and entertainment with in addition to Vernon a live band in the Club stand.
The following afternoon is Scottish Sun Raceday one of the busiest and most exciting days of the season.
This is the 10th anniversary of the Scottish Sun sponsorship and the racing includes the Scottish Sun/EBF Stallion Studs Land O’Burns Fillies’ Stakes, a Listed Race. After racing the fun continues with Replay, a terrific five piece band, playing in the Horseshoe Bar within the Club stand and leading radio dj Colin McArdle playing a selection of classic hits in the Ayrshire Suite in the Grandstand.
We will also launch our legendary ladies competition over the June weekend with the best dressed ladies on both Tennent’s Racenight and Scottish Sun Raceday going forward to William Hill Ladies Day final on September 16 when some fabulous prizes will be on offer.
