Bodog goes racing

BODOG, the new shirt sponsors of Ayr United will mark their association with the Honest Men by sponsoring a race at Ayr Racecourse’s Summer Sizzler Raceday on Monday just hours before United play a Manchester United X1 at Somerset Park.

The Bodog Backs Ayr United Median Auction Maiden Stakes run over six furlongs is the first race on the card at 2.30pm and members of the Bodog management team will be at the course for the presentation before heading over to the football.

There are seven races on the card with the last one due off at 5.30pm – in plenty of time for the match.

Anyone in possession of a ticket for the game will be allowed free admission to the racing and Ayr Racecourse Sales and Marketing Manager Lindsey Smith is hopeful of a big crowd.

She commented: “All the ingredients are there for a super day out – good racing, a top pre season friendly and a visit from Bodog.”
