Founded in 1842, Singapore Turf Club is the oldest and only horse racing club in Singapore. As a proprietary club of the Singapore Totalisator Board, it manages and operates professional thoroughbred horse racing at the world-class Singapore Racecourse located in Kranji.
Singapore Turf Club heralded the start of aviation in Singapore in 1911 as the runway for Singapore’s first manned flight. Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II visited the Club in 1972 and 2006, with The Queen Elizabeth II Cup organised to commemorate her visit. Singapore Turf Club was awarded the ISO 9002 certification in 1998, re-certified ISO 9001:2000 compliant in 2004, and awarded ISO 17025 accreditation in 2005. Singapore Turf Club was also a recipient of SPRING Singapore’s Singapore Quality Class and Service Class certifications in 2014.
Singapore Turf Club regularly opens its premises and organises a wide range of community, lifestyle, and recreational activities for members of the public. The Singapore Turf Club Riding Centre supports the Club’s engagement efforts by offering horseback riding and livery ownership at its world class facility. Singapore Turf Club’s operational surpluses are channeled to the Singapore Totalisator Board to fund causes in social service, community development, sports, the arts, education, and health.
