The good times begin on Saturday 15 October with Crown Perth Opening Day and continue until the end of the calendar year. The Ascot Racing Carnival features several themed events including the world-first $3,000,000 TABtouch Masters series, and the iconic Perth Cup Day New Years Eve party, featuring The Presets live.
The TABtouch Masters, which will be staged at Ascot Racecourse from Saturday 19 November to Saturday 3 December inclusive, is the highlight of the two-and-a-half-month Ascot Racing Carnival, where Ascot Racecourse will make racing history when it becomes the first track in the world to stage a Group One race worth at least $1,000,000 on three consecutive Saturdays.
The James Boag’s Premium-Railway Stakes, Perth’s oldest Group One race, gets The TABtouch Masters under starter’s orders on Saturday 19 November. The Crown Perth-Winterbottom Stakes, Australia’s last Group One sprint of the year, is its second-up feature on Saturday 26 November. And the Peters Investments-Kingston Town Classic, the southern hemisphere’s richest Group One 1,800 metres event, is its third-up highlight on Saturday 3 December.
