The biggest, best and richest Flat day’s racing in Scotland

The atmosphere throughout the day is electric and as the horses thunder up the home straight in the Gold Cup the cacophony of sound from the huge crowd makes the hairs on the back of your head stand up… this is sporting theatre at its very best.

And in addition to the superb on course action we have fantastic entertainment before, during and after racing.

In 2019 Angel Alexander, a horse part-owned by footballing legend Michael Owen swooped to win from Growl giving trainer Tom Dascombe and jockey Richard Kingscote their first success in this great race.

There are some other terrific races in addition to the feature including Scotland’s only Group race, the Firth of Clyde Stakes.

Contested by two year-old  fillies this has produced some excellent winners over the years and the latest was Rose Of Kildare from the Mark Johnston yard who was very impressive in holding off the challenge of Graceful Magic.

Additional highlights include the Ayr Silver Cup and the Foundation Uniting Against Dementia Handicap.
