Ayr Gold Cup 2009 Result

The 2009 Ayr Gold Cup was always a thrilling affair and it produced a popular winner with Frankie Dettori picking up his first win in the the race on board 14/1 shot Jimmy Styles. Barney McGrew ran well well to push the winner but was unable to keep pace with the Clive Cox trained winner.

Jimmy Styles looked to be travelling well throughout and reacted when asked the question by Frankie to get up and win by a head, Dettori was delighted with the win as it was one of the only big races around that the Italian had yet to win in his long and illustrious career. Tom Eaves on the 20/1 shot Barney McGrew did his best to get with the leader but just failed to grab the win, he did come in ahead of Knot In Wood and the 7/1 favourite which was Even And Odds.

All of this followed some bizarre events during the public draw for the stalls prior to the race, Clive Cox intended to pick stall 19 for Jimmy Styles but he lost his mobile signal meaning he was automatically given the middle stall of 15. However, it was a blessing in disguise for the trainer and connections as their horse came up trumps despite the draw which traditionally favours either high or low stalls.
