  • 30 December 2020 Owners Attendance at Scottish Racecourses Update

    DUE to the recent increased rates of transmission of Covid-19 throughout the country racing industry leaders have agreed with government that in areas in Level 4 in Scotland and Tier 4 in England only essential staff will be permitted to attend race meetings behind closed doors.

5-Day Forecast
    Ayr is up there with the very best in treating owners and was the first to introduce a full, sit down meal for owners and trainers at Western House and sometimes they don't get the credit they deserve for this.
    Mark Johnston, North Yorkshire, one of Britain’s top racehorse trainers
