Ayr Races

Ayr Racecourse is Scotland’s premier horse racing track. Located 35 miles to the south-west of Glasgow, its coastal location means racing often takes place when all other meetings fall victim to the weather.

Both flat and jump racing take place at Ayr, and it hosts the Scottish Grand National each April and the Ayr Gold Cup in September. A left-handed circuit of one mile four furlongs, it suits the long-striding, galloping horse.

Ayr Races Tips

  • Scottish trainers Keith Dalgleish and Jim Goldie have impressive records here on the flat, though North Yorkshire raiders Mark Johnston and Tim Easterby have eye-catching strike rates and Sir Mark Prescott’s runners here are always worth noting.
  • Over the jumps, trainer Nicky Richards always places his horses shrewdly, while Dan Skelton has an excellent strike rate.
  • The jockey with the best record at Ayr in recent years has undoubtedly been Brian Hughes.

Ayr Races Behind Closed Doors

Ayr races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Ayr races keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.

It’s still worth checking Ayr races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to an Ayr Race course event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
