Weekend Black-Type Schedule

Friday, 3rd January 2020

The first weekend's feature racing of the New Year is, by recent standards, a sedate affair. Headed by the Gr2 Perth Cup meeting where a trio of black-type races will be hosted at Ascot, with the exception of Awapuni's Listed Marton Cup just after lunch-time in Sydney and Melbourne, the quintet of Perth's and Launceston's stakes races are an all early evening affair – run between 6.40 – 8.55pm AEST. Whilst every effort is made to ensure information and the below race times (in Australian Eastern Summer Time order) are accurate, please consult official race cards if certainty is required.

  • 1.40pm: Listed Marton Cup (2200m) Awapuni
  • 6.40pm: Gr3 La Trice Classic (1800m) Ascot
  • 7.20pm: Listed Summer Scorcher (1000m) Ascot
  • 8.00pm: Gr2 Perth Cup (2400m) Ascot
  • 8.15pm: Listed Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) Launceston
  • 8.55pm: Listed Tasmanian Stakes (1600m) Launceston
