Guided stable tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays
Horsing around has never been more fun with opportunities to watch the beautiful equine animals go through their morning track work, vets in action and horseshoes being fitted onto hoofs; getting up close and personal with the horses to pat and feed them, and take pony rides.
Back by popular demand arising from the June school holidays, STC will be reintroducing stable tours every Tuesday and Thursday. Guided by STC staff, the educational stable tours will allow visitors to go behind the scenes and discover how the horses are prepared for their race day.
There will be two types of stable tours for interested participants; the morning tour, taking place from 8.30am to 10.30am, will include watching the horses go through their track work routines at the morning barrier trials.
The itinerary will include stops at the Veterinary Hospital to observe the horses undergoing treatment and the Farrier House to see horseshoes being fitted. Participants may also look forward to a walk round the Equine Pool where the horses swim as part of their training regime. The afternoon tour follows the same itinerary, and this is inclusive of a pony ride at the Singapore Turf Club Riding Centre.
The morning stable tour is priced at $25 per person, while the afternoon tour with pony rides is priced at $40 per person. Prevailing parking rates apply.
The closing date of booking for Tuesday tours will be the preceding Friday before 12pm and every Monday before 12pm for Thursday tours.
For bookings and enquiries on the stable tours, please call 6879 1718/1727 or email Events@turfclub.com.sg
