Content will include the latest racing action news, tips and what's on today at Ascot as we build to the exciting new Perth Racing Summer Carnival.

Viewers will be able to participate in a range of interactive activities including the opportunity to win fantastic weekly prizes.

AFL fans will be delighted that the “Derby” will continue in the off season, with the Dockers and Eagles players battling for supremacy in a weekly tipping competition, with winnings going to the Telethon.

Channel Seven Managing Director Chris Wharton said: “The Seven Network is intimately involved with the racing industry, through our coverage of the Spring Carnival and the race that stops the nation, the Melbourne Cup”

Go Racing further complements our involvement and will bring a local perspective to what's happening in the dynamic thoroughbred racing industry.”

Perth Racing Chairman Ted van Heemst said: “This new innovative programme provides Perth Racing with a fantastic opportunity to showcase our quality product."

“With record stakes levels in conjunction with the new Carlton Draught $1 million Challenge, there has never been a better time for our stakeholders and the business community to be part of our business.”
