Singapore Set to Return to International Racing

Further to the recent announcement that the $1.5 million Group 1 Kranji Mile (1600m) will become an invitational race this year, the Singapore Turf Club is taking one step further in its bid to create a racing extravaganza by rescheduling the race to 26 May 2018, along with the $1 million Group 1 Lion City Cup (1200m) and the $1 million Group 1 Singapore Guineas (1600m).


The changes are as follows:


Race Original Date New Date


Kranji Mile was 20 May 2018 now 26 May 2018


Lion City Cup was 20 May 2018 now 26 May 2018


Singapore Guineas was 18 May 2018 now 26 May 2018

The staging of three Group 1 races on the same day is unprecedented in the annals of racing in Singapore. The Singapore Turf Club is hopeful that such high-quality racing in one day will have all the elements of an international racing carnival that will not only attract the best horses from here and around the world, but also racegoers and racing fans and put Kranji back on the global stage.
