Celebrating The Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Singapore Turf Club

On a fine Sunday afternoon we were off to the Singapore Turf Club and this time for...The Queen Elizabeth II Cup.

What's this Queen Elizabeth II Cup about? It is a race in order to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II’s first visit to the picturesque Singapore Racecourse in 1972. With this theme in mind, the Singapore Racecourse was spruced up with a British flair as you get to see ladies dressed in unique hats. Why not try out a hat yourself? There was a “Best Hats on Tracks” contest to complement the fashion theme as in past years. 

Besides that, there was an elegant fashion showcase by “Shopping at Tiffany’s” where models parade the latest seasonal collection. Definitely something to look out for for the fashionistas.

While this race was named in the Queen's honour, unfortunately she was too busy to grace the event but it was still a really eye-opening experience watching jockeys race around the field. The thrill and excitement is something to be experienced! 

Dining in comfort in the Marquee, we got to see the horses race around the track. They were so much closer this time round, close enough for me to get some good shots of them in action. 

And...they are off!

We managed to get up close with the horses where they were guided a few laps around the ring so that we could judge their energy level for ourselves and decide whether they were in a winning-state.

The finalists of the Miss Singapore International 2016 pageant were also at the racecourse enjoying the races with package holders.
