Perth Racing Carnival 2017

The Perth Racing Carnival takes place in Perth, Western Australia and metropolitan racing is conducted at Ascot racecourse over summer and Belmont Park reacecpourse over winter.

The major racing carnival in WA is held over the summer period at Ascot with three major race days in November and December. Feature races in Vovember include the Group 1 Railway Stakes over 1600m and Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes over 1200m, while in early December the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic is held over 1800m.

Another very popular race that attracts plenty of interest over summer is the Group 2 Perth Cup, which is generally held on New Year’s Day at Ascot racecourse. Occasionally the Perth Cup is held on New year's Eve, providing a great way for racing enthusiasts to bring in the new year.

Sydney autumn racing carnival

Ascot is also home to the Perth autumn racing carnival held in April, with the highlight being the Group 2 WATC Derby and Group 2 Karrakatta Plate.

Belmont hosts its features races around June and July with four Group 3 races up for grabs. These are the Roma Cup, Belmont Sprint, Hyperion Stakes and Strickland Stakes.

We highly recommend a Sportsbet account for betting on Perth racing.
