The course at Ayr is a flat left handed oval of about one and a half miles with a long run in which will test the most resolute of gallopers. Always considered to be a fair test for a good horse, Ayr benefits from being close to the West coast, the moderate climate and sandy soil combining to produce an excellent racing surface at all times of the year.
