Thousands of punters will descend on Perth looking to strike it rich at one of the most prestigious race meetings in the Scottish horse racing calendar.
The Pentland Land Rover Gold Cup Day will be held on Sunday and organisers are expecting up to 8,000 people through the gates.
Owners and trainers from across the UK and Ireland will be competing in seven jump races.
The main feature will be the £25,000 Perth Gold Cup, with the total prize money on offer more than £62,000.
Sunday’s event will mark the Perth Gold Cup’s 15th birthday celebrations, with VIP hospitality already sold out.
Sam Morshead, general manager at Perth Racecourse, introduced the Perth Gold Cup in 2000.
He said he is “delighted” that the event has become synonymous with great racing for those in the industry and race-goers.
“When we introduced the event back in 2000, we were keen to build a big day out for Scottish racing that would grow in stature with the new millennium,” he told The Courier.
“I’m very pleased to say that, with lots of hard work, the team at Perth has done exactly this.”
He added: “Perth Gold Cup Day is one of our busiest meetings, with lots of families meeting in centre course to enjoy a picnic and the more serious punters gathering at the grandstand.
“Hospitality is hugely popular at Gold Cup Day and last year we introduced the additional VIP hospitality package for the first time and this has been a sell-out for 2015.”
The gates will open at 11.30am on Sunday, with the first race taking place at 2.10pm. The last race will be held at 5.30pm.
The Gold Cup day will be preceded on Saturday by a summer country music festival.
The celebration of Celtic Americana will feature a host of bands, including the New Madrids from Perth.
Saturday’s event, which does not feature any racing, will include competitions for the best-dressed child and best-dressed adult.
