Just joking, there is no Cinderella. This Horse Carriage is just for display for people to take photo at the Singapore Turf Club. Yesterday (17 Jul 2011), I was invited to the Singapore Turf Club to witness the Emirates Singapore Derby- one of the top horse races that is held annually at the Kranji Racecourse in Singapore every mid-July.

This race was staged left-handed on turf and is contested over 2400 metres of 1.24 miles or 10 furlongs. The race was open to four-year-old race hoses only.

Fund-raising remains an important element of the Emirates Singapore Derby. This year, Emirates hopes to raise at least $100,000 to benefit five voluntary welfare organisations under the umbrella of the Community Chest of Singapore. Fundraising activities include the pre-sale of donation tables and outright donations.

Interviewing the winner, Powell. It was a second Derby win for Powell who took the race in 2005 aboard Hello And Goodbye.

He paid tribute to Clint when he said after the race: "I was always a bit worried about catching Better Than Ever in the straight when I got out but to Clint's credit he fought hard and continued to cover the line all the way to the winning post."

See what we got?

Ya it was a nicely printed photo for us to bring home...

So nice... =) Photobucket
