Ascot Racecourse

Ascot Racecourse is the principle racetrack in Perth and hosts Western Australia's major horse racing events including the Perth Cup, Railway Stakes, Kingston Town Classic and Winterbottom Stakes.



Ascot is home to Perth’s horse racing industry with some of Western Australia’s greatest horse races held at the venue. The racecourse hosts the state’s summer and autumn racing carnivals in March/April and November/December.

The racecourse is located 8km east of the Perth city centre and The Western Australian Turf Club is located directly opposite. The racecourse features beautiful gardens and first class facilities including an interstate and local bookmakers ring. There is also an open sided pavilion the length of the Main Tote.

The track itself is 2,000 metres in circumference and features a 300 metre inclining straight. This straight is said to be the toughest test for stayers in Australia including those who compete in the Perth Cup on January 1. With a tough bend at the first turn, the inside barriers tend to have an advantage on this track.

  • Track Circumference: 2,000 metres
  • Racing Club: Western Australian Turf Club
  • Address: Grandstand Road, Ascot WA 6104
