Had the pleasure of spending a day at this wonderful Racetrack and it’s facilities.

We were there for a trade event and ihave to say the place is spectacular, super staff and the facilities are world class.

Everything from the Delicatessen to the car parks were perfect.

Simply brilliant

While it was probably not the racecourses fault, the behaviour of patrons on Melbourne Cup Day 2017 was quite poor.
The private areas were lovely but the general admissions area had more drunk people falling over, vomiting, crying and creating scenes than I thought possible.
Responsible service of alcohol? I don't think so!

Thanks KL*BP for your comments. We’re disappointed to hear your experience was marred on the day.
Perth Racing has a great duty of care for patrons, including enforcing restricted service of alcohol at major events – which limits the number of drinks patrons can order – while also ensuring water stations are plentiful.
The 2017 Melbourne Cup you mention was un-seasonally warm and at 38 degrees it added to patron discomfort. Our onsite medic did have an increased incidence of dehydration, heat stroke and given conditions we had a few patrons overcome, needing attention.
Additionally, our traditional services partners, police and local administrators complimented us on that day for the running of the event so we are disappointed you day was spoilt.
We appreciate your feedback.
Thanks again,
Perth Racing

We attended on Melbourne Cup day. The standard of the fields was poor for such a day.
Facilities for the large numbers weren’t adequate, especially for the large quantities of alcohol quaffed on a very hot day. Before we left (early) there were any number of heavily intoxicated patrons visible . At an entry cost of $40AUD for us it was overpriced and not to be repeated experience.

Visited this venue whilst in Perth. This is a fantastic venue with fantastic facilities. It is the cleanest racecourse I have ever been to anywhere in the world!
We dined at this venue and the quality of the food was exceptional with staff to match. If you ver get a chance to go, try it, you won't be disappointed!

A day at the races is a must do at Ascot Perth.
The venue is great, everything is accessible to the punter from bookies to bars, mounting yard to cafes, it has it all. Including a crowd that is not overbearing.
The fact that many trainers have stalls behind their houses and the area an advert for this equine industry made our visit unique.
The statue of ‘Northerly’ at one entrance sets the scene for a good day.
I hope you enjoy your experience as much as we did!
