Fixture Overview

The greatest day of the Flat racing calendar in Scotland – Ayr Gold Cup Day and an absolute feast of blue chip racing.

The first phase of Club & Grandstand badges for the 2021 Ayr Gold Cup Saturday have now sold out. If easing of restrictions allow we would hope to release more badges in the future. Please refer to our social media channels for further updates.

The Ayr Gold Cup, the Firth Of Clyde Stakes which is Scotland’s only Group race, the Doonside cup, Listed Race and the Ayr Silver Cup are all run on this day.

The role of honour in 2020 was right out of the top drawer. Newmarket trainer William Haggas and jockey Tom Marquand won the Ayr Gold Cup with the very talented sprinter Nahaarr who overcame problems in running to scythe through the field and win by half a length from Spanish City.

Haggas and Marquand also teamed up to win the Doonside Cup with Addeybb the highest rated horse ever to run at Ayr.

The Firth Of Clyde Stakes went to Umm Kulthum ridden by Paul Hanagan for trainer Richard Fahey and she could go on to win more high class races this year.

Magical Spirit, trained by Kevin Ryan and ridden by Kevin Stott won the Ayr Silver Cup in the Hambleton Racing colours.
