Fixture Overview

Welcome to the Scotland’s richest Flat race meeting the fabulous Ayr Gold Cup Festival.

It’s the opening afternoon of Scotland’s richest Flat race meeting – the Ayr Gold Cup Festival, and the start of a weekend packed with quality racing, fantastic fun, glitz, glamour and high class entertainment

Today’s headline race is the Kilkerran Cup, one of the oldest races run at the track, and in 2021 we had a really emphatic winner in Keith Dalgleish’s Chichester who spreadeagled the field to win by six and a half lengths.

The opening race is a mile contest for two year olds which has been won in recent years by leading northern yards including those of Tim Easterby and Richard Fahey who won last year with Gorak.

And don’t rush home for after the last race there is live entertainment with a band playing for three hours in the Club Stand.
