FEATURED RACING HIGHLIGHTS

WEDNESDAY 25 APRIL – Day One - Gold Castle Listed Novice Hurdle Race

The waiting is over as Perth starts its season with a bang!  The Day 1 festival feature is British Stallions Gold Castle EBF 'National Hunt' Novices' Hurdle.

THURSDAY 26 APRIL – Day Two

Day Two sees more of the same fantastic racing with jockeys, owners, trainers and racegoers renowned for their stamina at the Perth Festival!  A highlight in the Handicap Chase over 2m 4f does help to focus the mind of our party-minded Horsemen however!

FRIDAY 27 APRIL – Day Three Welcomes In The Highland National

After two days of racing, and two nights of celebrating, we're back on course for Day 3 with the main event, the much-heralded Highland National.  The Highland National has grown in both reputation and stature over the years and at over 3 Miles 6 Furlongs is the longest race staged at Perth all season.  Celebrated by the industry and punters alike, it never fails to have a competitive entry and produces a truly worthy winner. Gather around to help cheer the gallant horses home!
