Tartan Special was the order of the day on Ladies Night at Ayr Racecourse

Uplawmoor-based Jim Goldie led the way, saddling Glenluji (14/1) to win the Gas Sure & James Frew 101 Year Handicap. Jockey Graham Lee timed his run to perfection, heading the 9/4 favourite Cheeky Wee Red well inside the last to win by a length and a half.
Graham Lee (pictured above) also rode Goldie’s second winner Forrest Flyer (4/1) to land the QTS Group Handicap by a length from Vittachi (9/2).
Ian Semple also saddled a double, courtesy of Argentine (9/1) in the jockeyjan.co.uk Jan Wilson Memorial Apprentice Handicap, ridden by Shirley Teasdale, and Burnwynd Boy (4/1), the mount of PJ McDonald, in the Unison’s Ayrshire & Arran Health Branch Handicap.
Keith Dalgleish is a trainer in scintillating form, and his King Of Windsor (9/4 fav) just got the better of Watt’s Up Son (8/1) to win the Champagne GH Mumm Blanc De Blanc Handicap.
Biggest priced winner of the night was 50/1 chance Bee Brave. Trained by Sharon Watt and ridden by Paddy Aspell, who won the Champagne GH Mumm Cuvee R. Lalou/E.B.F. Maiden from Orion’s Hero (12/1).
