Friday, August 4, 2000, is the night to be seen, get dressed up and have fun at Scotland's premier racecourse, Ayr, as the track hosts its extremely-popular Ladies' Night, with the first race beginning at 6.20pm.

Every lady attending this Friday evening extravaganza will receive half-price admission into the Members' enclosure, and the first 400 lucky ladies through the turnstiles will also be lavished with free flowers and giveaways.

To encourage female racegoers to make that extra effort, there is a fabulous prize for the best-dressed lady of the evening, who will win an overnight stay for two at the Marine Highland Hotel in Troon. This luxurious hotel is set in beautiful surroundings overlooking the Royal Troon golf course.

The lady adjudged to be wearing the most beautiful hat at Ladies' Night will have the opportunity to become a more beautiful person as well, with a prize of beauty products. Other additional promotions and activities will be offered throughout the course of the evening at Ayr.
Children are far from forgotten on Ladies' Night and kiddies' entertainment in the form of rides and a funfair area will provide them with plenty of fun.

The horseracing on Friday, August 4, will be of its usual high quality, with the feature race of the evening being the ‘TRAVELLING EASILY TO THE TURN' CLASSIFIED STAKES (8.50pm) over one mile and two furlongs. Last year trainer Ben Hanbury conducted a long-distance raid from Newmarket to take the equivalent contest with Sharh, who ran out an easy 11-length winner.

The opening event on the six race-programme is the EUROPEAN BREEDERS FUND MAIDEN STAKES (6.20pm) over six furlongs. When Howard's Lad got the better of a prolonged battle with odds-on favourite Atlantic Rhapsody by a short-head in last season's renewal, racegoers who supported the winner because he is trained by highly-popular local trainer Linda Perratt were left feeling very pleased with themselves because he was returned at a most-satisfying price of 50/1!
Friday evening's other maiden contest is the ‘DOUBLE HANDFUL' MAIDEN STAKES (7.20pm) over one mile, with last season's equivalent won by top trainer Barry Hills with Musical Tones, who was ridden by Richard Hughes.
Three handicaps, which are sure to be most competitive, complete the six-race card, with the last race at 8.50pm.

Richard Pridham, Ayr's General Manager and Clerk of the Course, said: "Ladies' Night, this year on Friday, August 4, is always a very popular evening, with racegoers dressing up and coming to Ayr to be seen. There are some great prizes to be won, along with many giveaways, as well as the chance to pick six winners."
Admission prices are Club £14 (Ladies £7), Grandstand £7. Admission for students and OAPs costs £4 on production of ID and accompanied children under 16 are admitted FREE. Coach and Car Parking is also FREE.
