While it’s hard to fathom that 2023 is almost over, it does, however, mean that one of the biggest days on the Perth events calendar for 2024 is nearly here — the TABtouch Perth Cup Day on New Year’s Day.

The Perth Cup is a hallmark and an institution that has been an integral part of Perth’s New Year celebrations since its inception in 1887. In 2024, this will be no different with Ascot Racecourse set to become the epicentre of New Year’s Day celebrations. The TABtouch Perth Cup Day is not just about racing; it’s a day of entertainment, a fashion extravaganza, and a day of luxury and leisure for those who seek the premium side of the track. 

On The Track

At the heart of the day is, of course, the racing on the track. Headlined by the prestigious Group 2 TABtouch-Perth Cup with a whopping prize pool of $1,000,000 up from $500,000 from last year’s event. The race day will also feature the Mrs Mac’s-La Trice Classic and the Furphy-Summer Scorcher.

The TABtouch-Perth Cup race is run over a distance of 2,400 metres and has long been considered one of Australia’s iconic events on the racing calendar.

Luxury and Leisure

From the action on the track to luxury lounges, premium hospitality, and live entertainment, TABtouch Perth Cup Day offers something for everyone. Whether you’re a racing fan, a fashion enthusiast, or just looking for a fantastic day out, this is the place to be to start 2024.
