Perth Racecourse welcomed revellers from across the country to their annual Family Raceday and Perth Silver Cup on Sunday.
The Fair City course continued its busy summer schedule with seven races in front of a packed out crowd of horse racing fans, young and old.
£80,000 worth of prize money was on offer across the races, with some of the best of UK and Irish racing at Perth for the exciting fixture, £20,000 of which up for the winner of the featured race.
The racecourse began filling from 11.30am and the racing began at 2.05pm, with the sun shining on the hundreds of spectators who had made the trip.
Perth Racecourse had offered free tickets for anyone aged under 18 as part of their family focus. Games and activities for the youngest attendees were also held in the centre course enclosure.
From segways and archery, laser combat, an avalanche climbing wall and a 100ft inflatable assault course, youngsters were kept busy all day long.
The card started with JP McManus-owned Lake Baikal trying to build on his second place debut at Perth in May in the Novices’ Hurdle.
Tabitha Worsley, who broke her back as an amateur rider in a fall in 2017, went into the Silver Cup bidding to land the feature race for the second year running.
Also in the seven-strong line-up were top-weight Jennie Candlish-trained Theflyingportrait – another course and distance scorer at the Scone venue – and Ardera Cross, a hurdle winner at Perth for Clyde Valley trainer William Young shortly after his bargain buy £1,000 purchase in the spring.
