Ascot

Located in West Australia and just a few kilometers away from Perth's CBD, Ascot Racecourse is considered one of the best racecourses in Australia. Also known as the Grand Old Lady, the experience one can have here is truly great. With modern day group racing plus alfresco dining, accommodation and beautiful views all around make the track even more appealing to race goers. The Ascot Racecourse is also Western Australia's premier track and holds the Autumn Racing Carnival in March and April and the Summer Racing Carnival in November and December.

The racecourse is handled by the Perth Racing, formerly known as the Western Australian Turf Club. The club has been the host for over 150 years of thoroughbred racing at the Ascot Racecourse. The races here are mostly flat racing and the surface is grass which most consider as a good surface for racing.

Features of the Ascot Racecourse includes; track circumference of 2,022m and an inclining straight of 294m long. The track also features a home turn with a slight rise at the 400m which leads to the winning post. The track is considered as one of the toughest for stayers possibly because the straight is on a slight uphill slope. Races that are conducted at the Ascot racecourse each year are the Group 1 Railway Stakes, Kingston Town Classic and WATC Derby every April and the Group 2 Winterbottom Stakes, WA Guineas and CB Cox Stakes and the Perth Cup that is held on New Year's Day. All the races held in this racecourse are all famous in their own way.

Aside from the racing experience the track also has nine dining and bar facilities, two tiered restaurants, Flying Colours which is only open to the club members and the Terrace which is open to the public.
