One of the main highlights of the racing season, the Gold Cup attracts one of the biggest crowds as fans flock to see some of the best-rated horses compete for the main prize.

The atmosphere is always electric and the Grandstand always packed. Our raceday presenter will be holding a Q&A with some of your favourite jockeys, trainers and owners in the Parade Ring – you won’t want to miss it!

The centre course will also be open for those who wish to drive right in and enjoy a Sunday afternoon watching the richest meeting of the season at Perth!

Please note, crossing between enclosures is no longer available.

GRANDSTAND

Get in early as the crowds will flock to see the highlight of the Perth racing calendar – the grandstands are always filled with excited fans cheering their horses over the line.

Dress for the occasion – it’s the most prestigious race of the year, so put on your best gear!

Try the local beers and ales on offer from the StrathBraan breweries. If you get hungry, try some fresh, locally sourced haddock and chips from the Fish & Chip shop next to The Barn.

It’s going to be an incredible atmosphere with the best of UK & Irish racing showcasing their talent right here at Perth!

CENTRE COURSE

Make sure you arrive early if you want to drive right in – it’s one of the busiest fixtures and the centre course will be packed!

It’s an ideal day to bring a picnic to the centre course and enjoy an afternoon of music and racing. There will be a small range of inflatables available for the kids, so it’s a day the whole family can enjoy!

The sports bar will be open throughout the afternoon and there will be a range of drinks on offer.

Casual clothes are fine in the centre course, but make sure you dress sensibly for the weather. Remember hats and sun cream if it’s a hot, sunny day!

FEATURED RACING INFO

It’s the biggest event of the year in monetary terms – the City of Perth Gold Cup! The action will unfold in front of one of our busiest crowds of the season.

First staged in 2000, our feature race - the Gold Cup - alone attracts some of the sport’s best chasers. Previous runner-up, Menorah, was the classiest horse to grace Perth for 20 years.

Packed grandstands and a busy centre course – it’s going to be a great spectacle and definitely not one to be missed!
