Scotland's richest Flat meeting the William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Festival gets under way with Doonside Cup Day named after the feature race of the afternoon – the William Hill Doonside Cup
The Class 1 Listed race carries a prize fund of £65,000 and is one of the best performing races of its type in the UK.
The 2019 running was another excellent renewal with the three year-old Andrew Balding trained filly Encapsulation seeing off her rivals to win from What’s The Story. This was Andrew’s third win in the race having previously won it with Scottish in 2015 and Opera Gal in 2012.
The supporting card also contains some excellent races and many of the leading jockeys in Britain and Ireland will be in action riding for top trainers.
After racing a live band plays in the Princess Royal Suite within the Club stand for three hours.
