AYR’S final Flat meeting of 2017 saw the Karl Burke trained Jay Kay land his sixth course win when he made all under Joey Haynes to win the William Hill Bet Boost Handicap over a mile by three lengths from Le Chat D’Or.
The eight year-old had won at the course as recently as last week and was never in any danger and was returned at odds of 11-4.
Another popular winner was Chinese Spirit, 6-1, who won the last race, the William Hill Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap over one mile one furlong for trainer Mike Smith and jockey PJ McDonald.
A delighted trainer said afterwards : “I train just 10 miles up the road at Galston and that’s my 11th winner of the season from only nine Flat horses. I’m delighted with the way it has gone.”
Keith Dalgleish, crowned leading trainer at the track for the season, saddled Quiet Moment, 8-1, to win Division One of the Tennent’s Handicap over a mile for jockey Connor Beasley.
Barry McHugh rode a double on The King’s Steed, 25-1, in Division Two of the Tennent’s Handicap for trainer Micky Hammond and then partnered Adherence, a 9-1 chance, to win the one mile five furlongs handicap for Tony Coyle.
Favourite backers got off to a flyer in the first race, the one mile novice stakes when the Karl Burke trained Wax And Wane, sent off at 8-11, made all for jockey Ben Curtis to fend off the challenge of Lynwood Gold and win by a length and three quarters.
