PRLog - Dec. 12, 2010 - Ayrshire, Scotland--Ayr Racecourse has been voted Racecourse of the Year 2010 for Scotland and the North East of England by The Racegoers Club - the seventh consecutive year the course has won this coveted award.
Ayr Racecourse crowds
Ayr’s great run began back in 2004, the first full year current owners Alan Macdonald and Richard Johnstone were in charge - and Scotland’s premier track has won the award every year since.
Huge improvements have taken place at the track over the past seven years, including the new £4.5 million Ayrshire Suite, the introduction of new fine dining restaurants including the Roman Warrior and the Chancellor Carvery. And there’s also been huge changes made to the Parade Ring and Winners Enclosure, plus the creation of the Champagne Lawn and Gardens - the perfect place to be on a hot summer day!
The honour from The Racegoers Club is highly valued by the team at Ayr, as it comes from a Club whose 6,500 members are all active racegoers. Ayr has now won the award 17 times since 1990.
Lindsey Smith, Sales and Marketing Manager at Ayr Racecourse said: “We are so pleased to have won this award, which underlines our status as one of the top racecourses in the UK.
“To have won the award seven times is a great feather in our cap, and we thank everyone at the Racegoers Club for voting for us.”
