Fixture Overview

One of the most popular days of the year at Ayr Racecourse Scottish Sun Raceday last year attracted a record attendance for the day of almost 7,500.

And with whopping prize-money of £140,000 on offer and terrific entertainment  the scene is set for another fantastic afternoon and evening.

On track the highlight is the Scottish Sun/British Stallion Studs EBF Land O’ Burns Fillies’ Stakes, a Listed Race, over five furlongs and real speed race.

Last year’s winner was Marsha who went on to win a Group 1 on Arc day at Chantilly and who will be competing at the highest level again this season.

Other top races include the Class 2 Scottish Sun On Sunday Handicap ruin over a mile with £30,000 in the pot and there is also a trio of Class 3s – a five furlong handicap, a one mile two furlong handicap and a seven furlong handicap.

It’s a truly glamorous day as we give out more coins to best dressed ladies who will win a place at the final of our ladies competition on William Hill Ayr Gold cup Ladies Day on Friday September 22.

And after the last race there will be terrific entertainment with a fantastic four piece band from Glasgow, the Upbeats playing in the Horseshoe Bar within the Club Stand. Singing hit after hit this is the band’s first appearance at Ayr Racecourse and we can’t wait.
