It’s Perth Racecourse's oldest fixture at Perth and the final one of the year; get ready for the two-day Glorious Finale!
Come along dressed in your finest tweeds for a racing fixture that first took place way back in 1908. Over the two days, we will take a look back at our highlights of the year while watching 13 races across both afternoons.
To top it all off, after two great days of racing and a full year of thrilling competition at Perth, there will be live music in The Barn from Racecourse favourite band, Corra after the final race on day two to see out 2019 season and get you excited for next season’s racing at the UK’s most northerly track.
FEATURED RACING HIGHLIGHTS
One of the oldest fixtures at Perth and the prize money is tremendous to cap a fabulous year.
Horses in action represent top trainers from Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales and last year Peter Bowen saddled a double after a ten hour journey from his Pembrokeshire base. Peter doesn’t turn up for the fresh Scottish air. His sons Sean and James are maturing in to fabulous horsemen who are both retained by leading Trainers in the South so when they are jocked up at Perth by their Dad……..it’s worth paying attention!
A great way to finish the campaign with the Glorious Finale and a top drawer day that saw subsequent Grand National hero Bindaree make a winning debut over fences in 2000.
The two mile handicap hurdle is named after Nick Alexander's three-time race winner Jet Master and rumour has it that the popular veteran is being targeted at his favourite venue once more!
Top class horses such as Ballyandy and Fagan have won the £16,000 novices' chase so who knows what future star will come good this time – a very exciting fixture for the enthusiast to end the year.
