Thank you for your support
The Perth Executive would like to give a heartfelt thank you to all who supported us through all the challenges that 2020 has presented the racecourse in relation to the Coronavirus pandemic. In the end we were only able to stage six meetings between late July and September which were all held behind closed doors due to Covid restrictions. We could never have imagined back in early spring when we were anticipating an exciting season of fun that a full year would pass us by without being able to welcome a single racegoer.
The support we have received this year has been heart-warming. From the Horsemen that brought so many horses to race at Perth over the six days, ITV Racing, new sponsors bet365, all our raceday contractors and officials who kept the industry wheels turning throughout an extremely difficult period of lockdown. The racing industry has been an example to many others on how to operate with full bio-security compliance and keep everyone’s risk of transmission to an absolute minimum on our racecourses.
Thanks are also due to our 2020 ticket holders and our annual members who have shown patience, flexibility and understanding to help us through this very difficult time of extreme cash shortage. With positive news of a vaccine recently announced it has given us a real boost of encouragement with regard to the prospect of welcoming back customers in the New Year. Thank you all very much indeed.
The team has worked tirelessly with so much uncertainty through the Summer of 2020 which was like no other and are determined that all this work shall not be wasted as part of Perth’s recovery from the financial shock of not being able to have racegoers. Now that we have a fixture list published we shall be excited to make the most of all the opportunities 2021 bring to speed our recovery and we look forward to making further announcements in due course.
Please keep in touch via this website for opportunities to support the racecourse. How about purchasing a Day Out at Perth Races as an original Christmas present for a friend? We shall not hold you to any date in this crazy world of ours!
