More thrilling live racing on the Horizon at Perth this Sunday
A super Sunday lies ahead for UK sports fans and Perth Racecourse will play its part locally with the latest jumps fixture in front of restricted crowds that afternoon.
The second of four July racing dates at Perth, Sunday afternoon’s Restricted Capacity raceday, saw both the Grandstand and Galileo Restaurant selling out their reduced capacities more than a week in advance. Park & Picnic Bubble tickets remain on sale.
The team at Perth Racecourse have also had their long-term partnership with Horizon Parking further underlined with a generous full card sponsorship by their official parking service providers. Horizon Parking has increased its support at a crucial time for the racecourse with a handsome contribution to prize-money during Perth’s latest stage of a return to racing with crowds which falls on the same day as the conclusion of Euro 2020, and Wimbledon.
The only remaining uncertainty ahead of Sunday’s seven-race fixture is the weather, and with indoor spaces not fully accessible under current restrictions, all ticket holders are reminded to dress appropriately and come prepared for all eventualities!
Perth Racecourse CEO Hazel Peplinski said: “Top quality sport is coming at us thick and fast at the moment so we are pleased to be a small part of the live action on a fantastic day of sport on Sunday. We have all been dodging showers so far in July and there is a chance this unsettled spell of weather shall continue through this weekend which can happen in July! To comply with our current Covid capacities our Grandstand customers are still not allowed indoors and so brollies could be the order of the day. At least Park & Picnic customers have their cars to sit in if it turns showery. We cannot wait until we are given a few more freedoms later in the summer so it’s a question of staying patient during these final few weeks. We shall hope to announce further progress very soon for August and September.”
Bernie Dickson, Managing Director of Horizon Parking, added: “Horizon Parking has its roots in Scotland and has worked with Perth Racecourse for many years. Horizon operates car parking sites and events all over the UK but it has a particular soft spot for racing at Perth and Scone and is really pleased to be able to support the return to racing through its sponsorship on Sunday. The sponsorship allows us to have our name and brand put in front of thousands of people and lots of other businesses who might consider using our services.”
All in attendance will be provided with clear instructions and information in advance of each July raceday, be expected to follow Government guidelines and Covid protocols on the day and are reminded that turning up without a ticket shall result in non-admission.
