S$3million SIA Cup and S$1million KF Sprint- the two richest races in the region



Still remember I attended a Pre-celebration Chill Party for SIA Cup at Clark Quay recently. Yes Last Sunday, I was very honored to be invited to the main event- Singapore Airlines International (SIA) Cup which was held at Singapore Turf Club.
This is to Singapore what the Melbourne Cup is to Australia! Organised by the Singapore Turf Club, it celebrates international horseracing in Singapore where racing and non-racing fans alike can look forward to world-class racing at the Singapore Racecourse @ Kranji with the running of the two richest races in the region – the S$3million SIA Cup and S$1million KF Sprint.




It was my 1st time being there and was really an eye opening experience for me.

I was really honored to have the $150 'Party @ the Lawn' package ticket!


Everyone was excited about the SIA Cup as you can see from the crowd here!



That's my table!

Fine food & wine were served at the ballroom. I loves the Laksa!

After eating- Hmm... Let me see which horse to bet on now!

That's me with my betting tickets.

Some local celebrities which shared the same table as me.

Oh they are looking at the race result!

This is so beautiful! The sky had brought colour to the event!

Performers danced before the race.

Woohoo... Sexy girls with feathered costumes!



The Turf Belle was also one of the attraction that evening!

Rocket Man finally claims KrisFlyer Sprint! An interview session with the jockey Felix Coetzee for the winning. He said" Rocket man had a lovely jump and took me into the race. I took my time with him, when they pushed up inside him, I was never worried. he was very sensational. It's a privilege to ride him... It;s a privilege to win this finally, and in front of a local crowd."
