Euchen Glen wins Sunsport Handicap

Settled in the rear for most of the one mile five furlong handicap it was around the two furlong mark Euchen Glen was edged out by Mulrennan and he came with a blistering run to win by a length and a quarter from Northwest frontier. It was a case of gamble landed as the horse had been supported all day and retuned the 7/2 favourite.

That made it four wins from five runs at Ayr for Jim Goldie’s five year-old gelding who will now be aimed at the Ebor Handicap at York in August .

Bred and owned by William Johnstone from Coylton, whose family are co-owners of Ayr Racecourse, this has stacks of ability.

The Euchen Glen success made it a treble on the day for Paul Mulrennan who also scored on Byron’s Choice in the Arnold Clark Handicap and on Mooltazem in the News Scotland Handicap. Both horses are trained by Michael Dods.

There was also a double on the day for Jim Goldie with Tommy G winning the Leith handicap under Barry McHugh.

The feature race of the day, the Scottish Sun/British Stallion Studs EBF Land O’ Burns Fillies Stakes was run at a blistering pace and Elnadim Star, 10/1, trained by Kevin Ryan and ridden by Kevin Stott, came from off that frenetic gallop to win by a length and three quarters from Sandra’s Secret.

The Ayrshire Magazine Noughties Rcae Night on Friday also produced some excellent racing with Jim Goldie again in double winning form.

Braes Of Lochalsh won the AM Digital Handicap over one mile seven furlongs with Phil Dennis riding and Jami Gormley steered Oriental Lily to win the feature race, the AM The Members Card Handicap over six furlongs.

Keith Dalgleish saddled Universal Gleam, a 6/1 chance, to beat the hot favourite Addis Ababa in the one mile one furlong novices stakes and Iain Jardine’s Thorntoun Care , with Serena Brotherton riding, just got the better of Mike Smith’s Haymarket, ridden by Carol Bartley in the amateur riders
