One would think that the Melbourne Cup was in Perth, which players in Ascot celebrated on Tuesday.
After a long day of racing, thousands of patrons let their hair down.
With bars opening at 10, many had already surpassed themselves in the early afternoon.
While some had their fists in the air to celebrate a victory, others used them in a more sinister way, with a melee start shortly after lunchtime.
Others sacrificed their drink to take a picture.
In a classic party move, some were seen limboing under a piece of fence near the racetrack.
But it was not just fun and games for everyone with a number of racers escorted from the scene by security guards.
Verry Elleegant claimed victory in the $ 7.75 million Melbourne Cup ahead of red-hot favorite Incentivise.
The audience saw the shock victory from the Ascot Racecourse, where they enjoyed a sunny day in Perth.
Bright colors seemed to be a theme for the ladies this year with many wearing yellow, pink, green and red.
WA Premier Mark McGowan was spotted on the racetrack mingling with players chasing a selfie and chatting with jockeys.
A strong police presence was visible for the wild scenes that began to unfold in the early afternoon.
Six-year-old Verry Elleegant stormed home in just after a dominant victory over Peter Moody-trained Incentivize in second place, importing Spanish Mission in third place and Floating Artist in fourth place.
The horse paid $ 16.50 to win.
