With a 35% increase in prize money for 2018 and significant recent investment in facilities, multi award-winning Perth Racecourse, Britain’s most Northerly track, is looking ambitiously towards the future.
With a clear focus on the excellence of the race programme, we are looking for the first time to appoint a full-time permanent Racing Manager/Clerk of the Course.
