Scottish grand National

The pinnacle of the Scottish jumps season featuring two days of high class racing augmented by top entertainment.

If there’s a place you really should be on these two days in April then it is most certainly with us at Ayr Racecourse as we welcome well in excess of 20,000 people including many of the sport’s leading jockeys, trainers and horses. The Festival highlight is of course the Coral Scottish Grand National, one of the most famous races of them all and the centre piece of the meeting.

Ayr Gold Cup

The eyes of the sporting world fall on Ayr for three days in mid-September when the William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Festival takes place at Scotland’s premier racecourse.

Featuring some top quality racing and fabulous entertainment, then this is the place to be. This historical meeting is world famous featuring the William Hill Ayr Gold Cup one of the top sprint handicaps in Europe and many top supporting races including the William Hill Ayr Silver and Bronze Cups and the William Hill Doonside Cup.

And there’s no better place to enjoy the action than in one of the fabulous hospitality boxes or restaurants at the track.
