QUITE SIMPLY THE BIGGEST DAY OF THE YEAR FOR FLAT RACING
William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Saturday brings the Festival to a close in spectacular fashion.
Eight quality races, fantastic entertainment and a true sense of occasion all add to make this one of Scotland’s iconic sporting events.
The day is built round the £200,000 William Hill Ayr Gold Cup which is one of the most anticipated races of the Flat season. There are few more exciting sights in racing than to witness 25 of the top sprinters in the land speed down the six furlong home straight at Ayr in their quest for glory.
History was made in 2018 when Son Of Rest, trained in Ireland by Fozzy Stack and ridden by Chris Hayes, dead heated with Baron Bolt from the Paul Cole yard and ridden by Cameron Noble.
The atmosphere was electric as the huge crowd and hundreds of thousands of television viewers waited for seven minutes until the result was announced.
Never before in the race’s long history head there been a dead heat and it was also the first time an Irish trained horse had won the race.
Scotland’s only Group race, the William Hill Firth of Clyde Stakes also takes place on the afternoon as does the William Hill Ayr Silver Cup, the main consolation race for the Gold Cup.
There is entertainment throughout the day and into the night including a performance from top live band The Brightside who will play for three hours after racing in the Princess Royal Suite and the ever popular Colin McArdle will DJ in the Ayrshire Suite in the Grandstand.
FIRST RACE 1.25pm: LAST RACE 5.30pm
