Delighted Debbie picks up prize new car at Ayr Racecourse

By: Iain Ferguson

DELIGHTED Debbie Grogan officially took ownership of a fabulous Vauxhall Corsa LimIted Edition – the star prize in this year’s William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Ladies Day at Ayr Racecourse.

Debbie, from Sheffield, won the car when Coolminx crossed the line in front in the William Hill Ayr Bronze Cup last month, and travelled to Ayr on Friday to pick up her prize and drive it home.


She received the fantastic prize from William Smith of Kerr & Smith who sponsor the Ladies Day first prize and was still coming to terms with her big win.

She said: “I had a fabulous day last month when I won the car – I still can’t believe it and on the day I thought my horse had only finished second. The photo finish photograph now has pride of my place in my house – it proves I won William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Ladies Day Final at Ayr!

“Now I can’t wait to show the car off to all my friends and family back home in Sheffield – its a real stunner and I'm so proud.”

The William Hill Ayr Gold Cup Ladies Day is unique among ladies competitions at racecourses with ladies winning bronze coins at various race meetings over the season which then entitles them to a place in the final where they draw the name of a horse running in the Bronze Cup. The lady who has the winning horse drives off in the car.

This was the fourth year the prize was sponsored by Kerr & Smith who have garages in Cumnock, Ayr and Glasgow.
