The Singapore International Racing Festival (SIRF) started on 23 April at One Raffles Place and will stretch through to 17 May when the two highly-anticipated international races; Singapore Airlines International Cup (SIA Cup) and KrisFlyer International Sprint (KFIS) will be run at the Singapore Racecourse before an international audience.
Fourteen Turf Belles, selected through a rigorous talent search and groomed for their brand ambassador role during the Festival, made their debut public appearances at the SIRF roadshows at One Raffles Place from 23 to 24 April 2015 (Thursday and Friday) and ION Orchard from 2 to 3 May (Saturday and Sunday). Donned in the jockey silk colours of the past 14 SIA Cup winners, the Turf Belles joined staff volunteers from STC in the “Caps for Charity” initiative to sell specially-designed SIA Cup caps for a worthy cause.
As part of the SG50 celebrations this year, Singapore Turf Club staged Music Festival in the all-weather Parade Ring at the racecourse in Kranji on the evening of Saturday, 25 April.
The SIRF will end on a high note with the running of the two International Group One races – the SIA Cup and KFIS – at the Singapore Racecourse on Sunday, 17 May 2015. There will be “live” telecast of the two races on Starhub SuperSports Arena and Channel NewsAsia from 7.15pm and 7.30pm onwards respectively.
Racegoers can also experience the festive atmosphere first-hand at the Marquee with the Party@The Lawn package at $240 per person. Package holders will enjoy light tea followed by a sumptuous buffet dinner spread, with free flow of soft drinks, juices, beer and wine, right next to the exciting action taking place on the tracks!
