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.
