Ayr Racecourse presents jockey, owner and trainer of the year awards

By: Iain Ferguson

JOCKEY Paul Hanagan was crowned The Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky Ayr Flat Jockey Champion of 2011 at Ayr Racecourse recently.

The champion jockey celebrated by riding a double – bringing his total for the season at Scotland’s premier track to 14 from 61 mounts.

Pictured above: Ayr Clerk of the Course Emma Marley presented Paul with a limited edition Isle of Skye 21 year old bottle of whisky in a royal blue and gold Wade porcelain decanter and Paul commented: “I always enjoy coming to Ayr as its one of my favourite tracks, and I’m delighted to win this title again and this lovely prize.”

The Isle of Skye Owners title for the 2011 flat season at Ayr was won by Ken McGarrity, an owner with Linda Perratt, who also received a bottle of Isle of Skye 21 Year Old from Emma Marley (pictured above).

Ken said: “I have had runners at Ayr for many years, and I am over the moon to be top owner for 2011.”

Richard Fahey won the Trainers title but was unable to attend the meeting.
