Race to put down again (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

relay

This clue is a double definition.

'race' is the first definition.
(relay race)

'put down again' is the second definition.
('lay' can be a synonym for 'put down' so perhaps 'relay' is OK for 'put down again')

'to' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for relay that I've seen before include "supplementary store of anything", "Broadcast", "Team of workers", "Pass on - put down again", "article in bank".)

I've seen this clue in Sydney Morning Herald.
