Ayr Racecourse

Ayr Racecourse Betting with William Hill Online

Located in the town of Ayr, the Ayr Racecourse is possibly the most well known venue for horse racing in Scotland. It regularly hosts both flat and jumps racing meetings, with the season highlights coming in the form of the Scottish Grand National and the Ayr Gold Cup. The flat circuit measure 12 furlongs, whereas the jumps course is 1 and ½ miles, both are left-handed. It holds meetings (weather permitting) all year round, and is rightfully regarded as Scotland’s finest horse racing venue.

Ayr Racecourse: The Best of Jumps and Flat Racing

Although horse racing in Ayr can be traced back to the 16th century, the modern Ayr Racecourse has been operating since 1907. The flat racing course was modelled on Newbury Racecourse, although the straight is a somewhat shorter. The modern Ayr Racecourse has been the permanent home of the Scottish Grand National since 1966. The new course has also become the permanent venue for the Ayr Gold Cup, now the richest handicap race in Europe. Over the last 100 years, Ayr Racecourse has been able to develop itself into a world class venue for both flat and jumps racing.

There are plenty of top races held all throughout the year to attract the crowds to the Ayr races. For jumps, apart from the Scottish Grand National, there is the Scottish Champion Hurdle and the Future Champions Novices’ Chase (both April). For the flat, there is the Rothesay Stakes (May), Harry Rosebery Stakes (September) and the Land O’Burns Fillies’ Stakes (June). Generally the flat season runs throughout the late spring and summer, to be replaced by the jumps season in late October until April.

The Ayr Gold Cup is the feature race at the William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Festival. Held over three days in September, it features 22 top class flat races and is Scotland’s biggest and richest flat meeting. The festival always attracts a top drawer field and is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the racing calendar north of the border. The other notable festival at Ayr Racecourse is the Scottish Grand National Festival, which is held over two days in April. It holds two of the UK’s riches t handicap races, the Scottish Grand National and the Scottish Champion Hurdle. Whether it is one of the renowned festivals, or a cold, windswept December meeting; Ayr Racecourse has developed into one of Britain’s finest horse racing venues, which always showcases incredible action.
