Singapore horse racing takes place at one location, the Singapore Turf Club. With this VIP admission, you’ll enjoy access to the Owners’ Lounge, where you can watch the racing in an exclusive setting with private betting kiosks, a full bar (drinks at your own expense), individual seating and great views of the track. Round-trip hotel transport is included to make it easy for you to get to the club, located in northern Singapore.

Your Singapore Turf Club experience starts with hotel pickup. When you arrive at the club, make your way to the air-conditioned Owners’ Lounge, a VIP spot where you can enjoy amenities not available in the general-admission grandstands. Purchase drinks or food from the full-service bar and restaurant (own expense), relax at a selected table with personal TV screens for an up-close view of the race, and place your bets at a private betting counter.
Horse races take place on Friday evenings, when you can watch the thoroughbred action under bright lights, as well as weekend afternoons. This is a great way to experience another side of Singapore, where horse racing started in 1842. The Turf Club has become a prominent fixture on the international racing circuit since it moved to this section of Singapore, Kranji, in 1999. With a price tag of more than $500 million and modern technology like the glass-sided horse walk, which goes through the grandstand and joins the parade ring to the track, the 200-acre (81-hectare) venue is one of the world’s premier racecourses. Accolades include a Recognition Award from the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects for its ‘whimsical’ design, which includes the El-Toro Zoysia grass track.
When the racing is over, your experience ends with hotel drop-off.
Keep in mind, this isn't really a "tour". You're paying for a guide to pick you up, take you to the track and get you into the VIP section. Our guide did not remain with us during the races, which was fine. Since there was just the 2 of us on the tour the guide let us stay as long as we wanted (until the last race). Our guide was engaging and informative on our ride out to the track though, filling us in on Singapore culture and horse racing history of the area.
The area we sat in was very nice. You have your own TV for close-ups, and a great view of the track from an air conditioned lounge area. Our seats were quite nice and we had access to plenty of bet stations, often with no line.
Food & drink are not included, but we found buckets of beer to be a good deal compared to Singapore alcohol prices. We also ordered a light bite and found it to be above quality for what I'd expect from a track/stadium setting. We recieved very attentive service from our waitress.
If you are unfamiliar with horse racing, you might be a bit lost on this tour as the guide may not stick with you during the races to explain everything. But if you, or someone with you, knows the basics of betting, it's a lot of fun!
Great day at races. Picked up from Hotel and arrived 25 minuts before first race and departed after 8th race. Minimum bet is 5, so for a win and place is 10. Winnings is also shown for that minimum 5. Made some great friends. Food was reasonabled priced and yum. If you wanted any food or drinks, simply press the service button at your table. We were in group of 6. Sean our host was very funny.
A fun experience. Great views with seats right at the finish line. A good opportunity meet and chat with other people on the tour with you. Its wonderful to be picked up and dropped off right at your hotel.
We had a fabulous afternoon at the races. The booking, pick-up and drop-off were smooth without any hiccups. We had our own private table with 4 other Aussies at the races and even managed to win a few dollars on the day. Will do it again on our next holiday in Singapore.
terrible food, ok if you like cold fries and chicken feet,. we dressed according to the dress code, but were very over dressed.
very ordinary, bordering on tacky old fashioned, poor misleading advertising. would not recommend
Had an amazing night with a great group of people. The manager was so obliging. I would have liked to have seen thenfacilities more, including stables etc. other than that great. Watch betting though 10 is the minimum bet for odds. Guide should explain this.
