“Interesting Day Out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

As a VRC member and regular race attender in Melbourne I took the opportunity to attend a race meeting while in Singapore. The course is easily accessed via the MRT and I was invited into the Gold Room which is similar to the grandstand at Caulfield in that you are behind glass all day. The race callers were all English speaking and the course remonds me a lot of Sha Tin for those of you who have been there. I thought the facilities were okay, but not amazing and there is no alcohol availabke for purchase in thus area at all. There is a lot of builiding work going in at the front of the grandstand which is apparently a new roof to protect punters from the rain while viewing their horses. I took a walk to the "outer" area and the race calling suddenly went to Chinese and the atmosphere was ver different. I saw only a few women there and it is definitely not a family outing venue as no one under 18 is permitted on the course.

“Good place to have live seafood!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

We didn't go to the races here - we went for one of the many seafood restaurants that now occupy what was the Singapore Turf Club. Pick your own seafood, choose how you want it cooked, and then eat it 15 mins later. It doesn't get any better than that!

“A great way to spend a Sunday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

People often complain that Singapore gets boring after a while. You just need to think beyond shopping and pubbing to keep the tedium away in the Lion City. And what better way to do it than at the races!

You can soak in the excitement of racing and possibly win millions sitting in the air-conditioned comfort of the Hibiscus lounge, placing your bets as you order your drinks, or vice-versa.

Between races you can always step out to the parade area and get a good idea of how fit the horses are. Try and stay away from the free galleries. They are too crowded and noisy.

Giddy up!

“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2010

If you like horse racing you must go to the Singapore Turf Club.
It is close to Kranji Station. It is very crowded, and you have to options when buying tickets. Air-conditioning and non air-conditioning. My advice would pay the few $$ extra and buy an air-conditioning ticket which allows you to go outside and then when it gets too hot to come back inside. The atmosphere is fantastic when outside and the punters get very vocal.
The place is HUGE.

“Fun and Cheap Weekend/Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2010

Located just beside Kranji MRT, it is easily accessible by public transport. The cheapest area is 3 dollars, and they sell cheap beers at the food stalls.

If you are interested in horse-racing, or just some gaming fun, bring a bunch of friends and go down. I don't know anything about horse-racing or betting, so I just placed some random bets - It is pretty fun and cheap way to spend an evening or weekend.
