Fixture Overview

Day Two of the William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Festival is Ladies Day a truly glitzy and glamorous day and the middle afternoon of the three day Festival.

The final of the annual Best Dressed Ladies competition takes place during the afternoon and there will some fantastic prizes to be won.

There will be up to 25 finalists, the last few of whom will have been chosen by our judges on the day, and they will each draw a horse running in the William Hill Ayr Bronze Cup. The lady who draws the winner wins the star prize with second and third also winning big.

In addition to the Bronze Cup the racing highlights include two £50,000 Class 1  Listed races - Shadwell Stud/EBF Stallions Harry Rosebery Stakes  and the Al Maktoum Cup Arran Scottish Fillies’ Sprint Stakes over a new distance for Ayr of five and a half furlongs.

We are delighted to announce that 2016 The Voice winner Kevin Simm will be performing after racing! The former Liberty X singer will perform a 40 minute set after the last race in the Ayrshire Suite which is sure to fill the dance floor!

Having enjoyed seven top 10 singles whilst in Liberty X including the number 1 hit 'Just a Little' we are sure his performance will be fantastic!
