Originating in 1880, the Singapore Derby is the oldest feature race in Singapore. It is currently a $400,000 Group 1 race over 1800m on turf.
The Singapore Derby: A Time-Honoured Celebration of Excellence 


The Singapore Derby is one of the oldest and most prestigious feature races in Singapore that has enthralled horse racing enthusiasts for over 140 years. The race was first established in 1880 and ran at the Farrer Park Racecourse for a prize money of $150. The Singapore Derby was discontinued in 1910 but was revived by the Singapore Turf Club in 1959 and has since earned its prestige as a cornerstone in the Singapore horse racing calendar. 


With a distance of 1800m, this Group 1 race is exclusively open to four-year-old horses. The battle for glory in the Singapore Derby is not only a testament to the skill and talent of the horses but also a showcase of the exceptional sportsmanship of jockeys who guide them to victory.
