And They're Off!!



The big event of this weekend was Saturday - my first ever trip to the races. One week after the Grand National at Aintree, it was time for the Scottish Grand National at Ayr Racecourse.

We had a minibus booked and set off up the M8 just after 10 until we had to turn back and pick up some forgotten tickets. When we got back in Greenock we decided to take the coast road down.

It didn't take long for the course to fill up and the first race to begin. It was a great atmosphere. Eight races later and most of us hadn't even broke even. Time to head inside and listen to the post race entertainment until pick up time.

So all in all, a great day out. I wasn't sure what to expect but it was a good experience and a good day out if you can get a group together.
