Two-day Ayr meeting abandoned due to frost

AYR has abandoned its two-day fixture which was due to begin on Friday due to a frozen track.

Clerk of the course Katherine Self was forced to call off their two-day fixture after a 9.30am inspection on Thursday showed the venue to be unraceable.

She said: "The track is completely frozen. We got down to minus four last night and we have another minus five forecast tonight. We have no chance of racing on either day so we have had to abandon."
