Singapore Racing Returns

We are delighted to learn that Singapore racing is now scheduled to make its return in July, albeit with fewer meetings initially - our Singapore stable, headed by trainer Mark Walker, is ready to go!

The Singapore Turf Club reports:

Racing will return to the Singapore Turf Club on Saturday, July 11 with the government granting approval for the sport to recommence after ceasing in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Meetings will be conducted under strict biosecurity measures with crowds not permitted.

“With Singapore moving into Phase Two of the post-circuit breaker period on June 19 the Club has received approval from the Government to resume racing behind closed doors on July 11 with strict health and safe management measures in place,” the Singapore Turf Club said.

“We thank our customers for their continued support and seek their understanding that these arrangements are necessary to ensure their safety and wellbeing, in alignment with the Government's regulations and guidelines.”

Trackwork had been allowed to continue while the circuit breaker was in place, though only at a slow pace, with horses allowed to gallop a few weeks ago and barrier trials resuming this week.

A schedule is yet to be released but initial dates up to September will be announced on the Club's website once finalised.
