Shaping up for the season opener

3rd April 2017

Tristan and Finlay have made kilted yoga famous over the past few months by being photographed in some of Scotland’s most picturesque locations. With its panoramic views of the Perthshire countryside, Perth Racecourse was an obvious next choice.

The Perth Festival, run over three days (26-28 April) is home to the prestigious £20,000 Highland National which is always hotly contested by top trainers from Scotland, England and Ireland. Set against the spectacular landscape of the UK’s most northerly track, the Highland National, benefiting this year from the support of Festival sponsors Heineken UK, is the highlight on the card for the large and enthusiastic Friday afternoon crowd.

With 15 days of racing across the 2017 campaign, a new £250,000 irrigation system in place and a 10% increase in prize money, the Perthshire venue is on track for its best season yet.

Hazel Peplinski, chief executive of Perth Racecourse said: “We pride ourselves in staging some of the best national hunt racing in the country at this time of year and set within some of Scotland’s most breath-taking scenery, we offer an irresistible experience of a much more relaxed nature than the Cheltenham, Aintree and Ayr Festivals that go before. 

“We’ve invested heavily in our new irrigation system and with increased prize money we hope to catch the eye of more horsemen across the whole of the UK and Ireland. While we do share the same week as the Punchestown Festival this year, we already know that the likes of Gordon Elliot, currently the leading Trainer in the Irish Championship, has already studied our programme and earmarked his contenders for a typically powerful Scottish raid.”

The Perth Festival takes place from Wednesday 26 April to Friday 28 April. Three day tickets are priced at £50. Grandstand tickets are available for each single day at £20.
