COMPETITION NOW CLOSED WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY

AYR Racecourse is staging two great Family Days in July - Totepool Armed Forces Family Raceday on Sunday July 8 and Glasgow Fair Festival Raceday on Monday July 16.

The great news is Nick Jr's Dora The Explorer is coming to Ayr and will make appearances at intervals during the afternoon on both days !

There's lot to do for the older children too with five separate fun zones and all the family entertainment is free !

One of the fantastic attractions is the Amazing Mini Zoo where children can get up close and personal for a hands on interactive animal encounter with mammals, birds, lizards, snakes amphibians, spiders and creepy crawlies.Animal handlers will deal with all aspects of the petting zoo and there will be close ups with tarantulas and scorpions and there will be handling of everything from chickens, mice and rats through to cockroaches, lizards and snakes.

Another innovative attraction at the Family Days will be Al Johnson performing his freestyle football tricks and workshops with children of all ages and abilities. Al used to play with Sunderland until an injury ended his career and since then he has gone on to become the U.K.'s top football freestylers and has performed pre match shows for football clubs including Manchester City, Chelsea, Aberdeen and Motherwell.

There's also a fantastic lazer quest, bouncy pirate ship, tanks, fairground and beat the goalie plus much much more. And of course on both days there are seven races with many top jockeys in action.
