Autumn Racing Carnival
Saturday 16 March 2024 - Saturday 11 May 2024

Escape the everyday this Autumn Racing Carnival! Step into the world of horse racing at Ascot Racecourse - experience the riots of colour, the swell of the crowd and the thunder of hooves, as fate decides whether it will be in your favour. 

Our Autumn Racing Carnival opens in March with Studco St Patrick's Raceday where you can expect a day of merrymaking. The action continues with Good Friday Family Raceday (General Admission is free), followed by ladies' day on Drummond Golf WA Oaks Day and Italian-themed festivities on PKF Italian Raceday. We then take it up a notch with black and white fashion and Group 2 racing for Schweppes WATC Derby Day, followed by our headline event on Saturday 20 April 2024 - THE QUOKKA

In May, we round off our Autumn Racing Carnival with Quayclean WA Sires' Produce Stakes Day and Closing Day, before we head to Belmont Park Racecourse for the Winter Racing season.
