Perth racecourse


Perth Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue adjacent to the ancient Scone Palace, near Perth, Scotland.

Contents

Perth Racecourse at the site in Scone Palace Parklands opened in 1908 and is the northernmost track in Britain. However, horse racing in Perth has taken place since 1613 and was moved to Scone Palace due to drinking law ban in the North Inch. Lord Mansfield subsequently offered his land for everyone to enjoy the sport of Kings. The course is right-handed and ten furlongs in circumference. The steeplechase course consists of eight fences per circuit, with the water jump situated in front of the grandstand. The hurdle course is located on the inside going away from the stands, but switches to the outside of the chase course turning into the home straight.
