The Arran Banner - - Advertising / Sport -

A New Year of rac­ing ac­tion at Ayr gets un­der way with the tra­di­tional New Year Race­day on Wed­nes­day Jan­uary 2, 2019, and the card fea­tures seven ex­cit­ing races.

The prin­ci­pal race is a Class 3, two-me­tre, five­fur­long hand­i­cap hur­dle with £15,800 in prize money – the rich­est jumps prize of the day in the UK.

This should en­sure a good sized field with many of the lead­ing north­ern sta­bles likely to be rep­re­sented. The last run­ning of this con­test was won by Elu­sive The­atre trained in Ire­land by Stu­art Craw­ford.

The main sup­port­ing con­tests are a 2m hand­i­cap chase and a 2m novices’ hur­dle with the lat­ter won in Jan­uary this year by the highly rated Bet­ter Ge­ta­long from the Nicky Richards yard.

The first race on the day is at 12.30pm with the ac­tion con­clud­ing with a na­tional hunt flat race at 3.45pm.

And after rac­ing a live band will play in the Princess Royal Suite in the Club area for three hours with a DJ in the Ayr­shire Suite.
