Monday 15th
July 2024

A fantastic day out for the whole family that won’t break the bank.

We have another exciting afternoon of top racing and excellent family entertainment which will include fairground rides, face painting, glitter art, fun zones and a mascot race.

And there will also be the opportunity for our younger patrons to meet their favourite superheroes and remember all children’s entertainment is free!

Racing wise the highlight is the Ayr Gold Cup Trial over 6f. This valuable race was introduced for the first time in 2022 and a big field is expected for this running of this race with a few horses hoping to stake their credentials for the Ayr Gold Cup itself in September.
