Racing at Ayr today (Fri) has been abandoned with the track still unraceable owing to an area of waterlogged ground in the home straight. Despite a dry day following Thursday’s abandonment track officials along with the BHA course inspector have taken another look at the affected area and there is very little improvement. There is no option but to cancel Friday’s card.
William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Ladies Day combines fantastic racing with lots of glamour and entertainment making this a day not to be missed.

Racing highlights include - The Shadwell Stud/EBF Stallions Harry Rosebery Stakes, a Class 1 Listed race over five furlongs and also a brand new race in The Al Maktoum Cup Arran Scottish Fillies Stakes, also a Class 1 Listed race this time over five and a half furlongs a new race distance for the track.
