A NEW CHAPTER IN RACING, 170 YEARS IN THE MAKING AT THE SINGAPORE RACECOURSE – JUBILEE STAKES 2012
In commemoration of the first race held in Farrer Park back in 1843, Singapore Turf Club (STC) celebrates its 170th year of horseracing this Sunday, 30 September 2012 with the Jubilee Stakes! The Jubilee Stakes will be run at 5.45pm on turf over 1,400m. The Guest of Honour, Dr Teo Ho Pin, Mayor of North West District will be gracing the event.
STC will also use this platform to raise funds for its adopted charity, Club Rainbow (Singapore) which provides a fleet of comprehensive support services for the families of children suffering from major chronic and potentially life-threatening illnesses. Funds raised through a charity luncheon this Sunday and other staff initiatives held earlier this year, will go towards purchasing a van for Club Rainbow to transport its beneficiaries.
Racegoers can look forward to an array of exciting highlights such as the 170 years of Racing Lucky Draw and 170th Anniversary Commemorative Coin giveaway. In the 170 years of Racing Lucky Draw, the top prize of $700 cash and one time corporate box usage worth $1,000 is up for grabs. Two consolation prize winners will get $170 cash and a bottle of sparkling wine each.
