Rock at the Races

If you like rock n' roll and you like racing - you are in for a treat on Tuesday 1st August. Come and join us as we Rock at the Races!

The perfect evening for race goers with a rockstar attitude as we have seven great races to enjoy before live music takes centre stage until 10:30pm!

Rock band Bwani Junction will be playing their favourites on the main stage, including their cover of Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’ in what is set to be an incredible evening at Perth Racecourse.

This is the penultimate race in the Mackie’s of Scotland Summer Series and it is one not to be missed. Have a bet, have a drink and have a good sing-a-long to some of your favourite songs on a night not to be missed!

HOT TIPS FROM THE TEAM

WEAR: Smart casual – dress to impress and leave the trainers and footie colours at home!

EAT: Locally sourced haddock freshly cooked to order – get down to the Fish & Chip Shop and enjoy your meal on the picnic benches nearby.

SEE: Bwani Junction on the main stage after the final race until 10:30pm – it’s not to be missed!

DO: Pick your horses wisely! With 100-1 shot Drummullagh Rocky winning last year, anything can happen!

EXTRAS:  Try some of the local beers and ales on sale at the bars!

FEATURED RACING HIGHLIGHTS

There are seven great races to enjoy and going by last year’s results, don’t just look out for the fancied runners! 100-1 shot Drummullagh Rocky, trained by Sean McParlan, beat off competition from the likes of Richard Johnson to claim an unlikely victory!

After the racing is finished, head over to the main stage for live music from Bwani Junction until 10:30pm!
