With many years experience as a Racehorse owner, I am constantly impressed with the effort and expediency with which the team at Ayr work to ensure that the race track is produced to the highest standard possible. Welfare of horses and jockeys is obviously paramount in their priorities. This, coupled with first class hospitality, is why we remain long-standing Sponsors and supporters of Ayr.
