Gallopers Policy at Ayr Racecourse

Due to the large number of fixtures staged at Ayr Racecourse which attract large numbers of runners, both on the flat and NH tracks, we cannot under any circumstances allow gallopers through the season.

We have limited track space in which to provide a consistent racing surface and with the costs of track maintenance increasing this must be a blanket policy - no exceptions in the interests of fairness.

At the end of the racing seasons, NH and Flat, we may allow gallopers the following day, conditions permitting, and this will carry a charge of £35 + vat per horse payable in advance.
