Cancellation of Coral Scottish Grand National

18 Mar 2020

A Statement from Ayr Racecourse

We would like to thank everyone for their support, patience and understanding following the cancellation of this year’s Coral Scottish Grand National Festival due to horseracing in Britain being suspended until the end of April by the British Horseracing Authority in light of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Our Sales Team will be contacting everyone who has purchased tickets offering a full refund. However we would really appreciate your support and can offer customers the opportunity to transfer their bookings to next year’s Coral Scottish Grand National Festival which takes place on April 16 and 17 and this would greatly help our business. 

Please note that once we process the refund it could still take a minimum of eight weeks to reach our customers.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Ayr Racecourse at the earliest opportunity.
