Fixture Overview

Blow out the Christmas cobwebs and kick start 2018 with a bang at our thrilling New Year Raceday!

Our traditional New Year Raceday on January 2 is one of the best days out of the year at Ayr Racecourse.

Extend your Festive celebrations by enjoying seven races and great entertainment after the last race keeping your party lasting well into the evening.

The feature of the afternoon is a Class 3, two mile five and a half furlong handicap hurdle which was won in 2017 by Desert Cry from the Donald McCain yard – a horse that is owned by former Manchester United manager David Moyes.

There is also a three mile handicap chase on the card which should attract some leading northern chasers and was won last year by Nortonthorpelegend trained by Rebecca Menzies and ridden by Brian Hughes.

The concluding contest is a two mile national hunt flat race or ‘bumper’ and then the party starts with the after racing entertainment. 



AFTER racing for three hours there is terrific live entertainment in the HorseShoe Bar within the Club stand with ANGELSTAR one of Scotland’s top live acts performing.

With two lead vocalists – a female and a male Angelstar cover a variety of classic hits and tracks familiar to everyone – a band set to fill the dance floor.

And in the Ayrshire Suite within the Grandstand DJ Jim will be playing a set designed to keep the festive party in full swing.

First race 12.30 pm, last race 3.45 pm gates open 11.00 am.
