If you like horse racing, you should know that Singapore Turf Club is the only authorised operator of horse racing, and horse betting services in Singapore.

Singapore Turf Club was founded in 1842 as the Singapore Sporting Club to operate the Serangoon Road Race Course at Farrer Park. The first horsing race was held on 23 February 1843 when prize money on offer was only $150. In 1924, the Club changed its name to the Singapore Turf Club. This was done to reflect its role as a horse racing club more accurately.

The Club moved to Bukit Timah in 1933 before relocating to its present location at the Singapore Racecourse at Kranji in 1999.

The Kranji racecourse is adjacent to Kranji MRT Station. Racing is staged all-year round on either Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, or Wednesdays.

A feature of the horse racing calendar is the S$3 million Group 1 Singapore Airlines International Cup (SAIC). It is held in May, coupled with its sister sprint race, the S$1 million KrisFlyer International Sprint.

Singapore Turf Club introduced MobileTote in April 2009. With this service, racing fans can now place totalisator bets, enquire about betting/horseracing information and manage their accounts from any location in Singapore or oveseas with their mobile phones.
