Ayr Cups: Luck of the Draw?

Over the next couple of days as many as 81 horses will contest three races, all over the same three-quarters of a mile strip of Ayr’s straight course.

Double Dutch, 1st September 2014 It was nice to end August with a winning double and, with a non-runner in the first leg, we also scored a bonus win single!
