Today's card at Ayr Racecourse in Scotland, which included the listed Doonside Cup, as well as tomorrow's card that was to include the listed Harry Rosebery Stakes & listed Scottish Fillies' Sprint Stakes, has been abandoned due to problems with the racecourse being dangerously waterlogged from a down pouring of rain over the past few days in Ayrshire. Racing at Ayr will resume on Saturday, with the track's biggest event of the flat season, the Ayr Gold Cup(Heritage Handicap), along with the G3 Firth Of Clyde Stakes for juvenile fillies and the Ayr Silver Cup(Handicap) for those horses who were entered but didn't make the cut for the Ayr Gold Cup field.
