Press Release



Due to overwhelming public demand, the Singapore Turf Club (STC) will be organising more sessions for the public to sign up for its “Capturing Our Beauty” photo walks. The photo walks form an integral part of the Club’s drive to engage with the community leading up to its final race on 5 October 2024. 



The Club had earlier announced on 4 April 2024 the launch of the photo walks, which will take place from May to June 2024. The first round of photo walks has since been oversubscribed and registration for these have closed.


Responding to public demand


Five additional slots will be made available from June to August 2024, on 23 June (Architecture), 30 June, 21 and 28 July (Racing), and 17 August (Flora and Fauna). Each session will last approximately two hours. An introduction on STC’s history, racing heritage and overview of the grounds will precede each tour.  


The Club expects high take-up for the new slots and registration for these walks will be on a first-come, first-served basis.


Learn about the Club’s heritage, through a different lens


The complimentary experience organised by the Club is in collaboration with renowned Singaporean photographers, Lee Aik Soon and Lee Yik Keat. They will act as both guides and mentors, sharing photography tips as well as insights on the vantage points and significance of the subject matter along the routes.


Aik Soon is a multi-disciplinary artist whose emotive storytelling has earned him a diverse multinational clientele. Yik Keat, an Instagram luminary with 1.3 million followers, was recognised as an arts trailblazer in Forbes Asia 2022 prestigious 30 Under 30 honour list. 


Offering three different experiences, namely Architecture, Flora and Fauna, and Racing, the public can sign up for these sessions for an unprecedented opportunity to learn about the Club’s heritage through a different lens.


  • Architecture: Delve into the history of STC with a photo walk highlighting the world-class racetracks and awe-inspiring grandstand, meticulous design details and the timeless elegance that defines STC’s architecture.
  • Flora and Fauna: Embark on a guided exploration of the Club's expansive grounds and gain a deeper appreciation for the rich biodiversity that thrives within.
  • Racing: Revel in the electrifying atmosphere of a race day, capture the action and witness the thrill of competition first hand.


Culminating with a photo competition with prizes to be won


The initiative will culminate with a photo competition drawing entries from the photo walks and from the wider public.


Winning entries from the photo walks as well as submissions from the public will be eligible for cash prizes of between $50 and $500 and will be displayed at a photo exhibition to be launched on the final race day on 5 October 2024. A total of three digital photographs may be submitted per entry; winners will be announced in September 2024. The judging panel will comprise Aik Soon, Yik Keat and STC representatives.
