And they’re off! With only a few weeks to go now until Perth Racecourse’s Ladies Day, the highlight of Perth’s event calendar. Plans are well under way to make a day at the races one of the must-do events of the year.
Back a winner with a fabulous fun-filled day out at Perth Racecourse!
Nothing beats the drama, excitement, glamour and sheer joy of attending a race meeting in person. Watching the horse you’ve placed a wager on come thundering along the track, while the crowd around you cheers on their favourite runners and riders, is one of the most exciting feelings you can experience.
At Perth Racecourse, there are numerous exciting race days to look forward to this year, with several big season highlights such as the summer carnival (a sell out in 2017) and other huge events including an additional Ladies Day in autumn.
Thanks to a bit of forward planning by the Press and Journal there’s no need to worry about making your own way to the races, finding a place to park or even persuading someone to do the driving because we are running coaches to the Ladies Day event on Thursday, May 17.
Coaches will be picking up passengers in Huntly, Inverurie and Aberdeen which means, that for many passengers, it will almost be a door-to-door service as they won’t have to make their way to Aberdeen to join the coach, while the time spent on board can be used picking out your favourite runners and riders!
And here’s the best bit – ticket plus coach travel packages for this fun-packed day out are priced at just £45, and include your return travel and a grandstand admission ticket.
The Ladies Day event is one of the biggest draws, so ladies you need to grab your hat, heels and poshest frocks and head for the glitzy event. Proceeds from the day will go to the charity ‘Breast Cancer Now’.
There will be seven thrilling jump races, a best-dressed lady competition with a top prize of £2,000 cash, and competitions for the best-dressed male and hat. Along with the racing, there’s a huge programme of entertainment on offer, and a wealth of drink tents, food options and music.
