Perth Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue adjacent to the ancient Scone Palace, near Perth, Scotland.[1]

Perth racecourse opened in 1908 and is the northernmost track in Britain.[1] 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.
