Perth: Lunar Race Day Celebrations

13 February 2016

Ascot Racecourse, Grandstand Road, Ascot WA 6104

ACBC (WA) is pleased to be partnering with Perth Racing to bring you the Lunar Raceday Celebrations on Saturday 13 February 2016 at Ascot Racecourse


Ascot Racecourse will once again be transformed into a Chinese themed marketplace for its second Lunar Raceday. There’ll be a colourful line-up of trackside entertainment including lion dancing, martial arts demonstrations, an acrobatic presentation, along with a traditional Chinese costume show and performance, Chinese food and market stalls, a lantern display and a special appearance made by the General Consul of China. 

Over the St Valentines weekend ‘Dumplings on the Deck’ is expected to be a popular alfresco event for social groups and couples at $75.00 per person including general admission, food service, drinks and entertainment and the restaurants on both levels of the Grandstand will offer an Asian-inspired cuisine starting from $65.00 per person in the Terrace Restaurant. 

All eyes will be on the final race 8, The Australian Chinese Times Stakes, as the number 8 represents good fortune. 

Perth Racing has a proud history of thoroughbred racing in WA and is an integral part of tourism and the wider business community in Perth. It describes the collaborative effort between founding partners, the Australian Chinese Times, The Association of Grand China (Inc) and the Australia China Business Council as an event for all cultures as they develop a strong Australia/ China connection. 

Similar to last year, the Lunar Raceday is expected to draw a large crowd to the racecourse and the first 2,000 oncourse will receive a Fortune Cookie and a chance to win prizes. 

Gates open at 9.00am with the first race at 12.53pm. General admission tickets are $15.00 or $10.00 early bird (7 days prior). Visit perthracing.com.au for hospitality and ticketing.
