Scottish success at Ayr Racecourse
By: Iain Ferguson
FIVE Scottish trained horses were among the seven winners at the Kerr & Smith Group Raceday at Ayr Racecourse last Thursday.

Jim Goldie and Nick Alexander both saddled doubles while Lucinda Russell was also on the score sheet.
Uplawmoor based Goldie landed a first and second race double with Titus Bolt (4/6 fav) and Too Cool To Fool (2/1 fav) both ridden by James Reveley.
Nick Alexander was not only a happy trainer but a proud father. Daughter Lucy rode Little Glenshee (5/2) to a game victory in the Kerr & Smith Cumnock Vauxhall Novices' Chase winning by a short head from the favourite Up And Go and son Kit produced Clan Chief (25/1) to land the Kerr & Smith Glasgow Iveco Standard National Hunt flat race by six lengths.
And Lucinda Russell saddled The Friary (5/1), ridden by young Derek Fox to win by a head from Irish raider Mister Philson in the Imperial Flyer Handicap.
Next up at Ayr is the two-day totepool March meeting on Friday and Saturday 7 and 8 March, which is sure to be a good meeting coming just before Cheltenham.
