Emirates Singapore Derby 2015 Coming This Sunday 12 July!
In its landmark 20th year, the Emirates Singapore Derby 2015 will be run over 2,000m on turf at the Singapore Racecourse on Sunday, 12 July 2015. The long-established partnership between Emirates and Singapore Turf Club has made the Singapore Derby one of the most coveted races in this region. To match the exhilarating action of thoroughbreds vying for the $1.15 million prizemoney in this third and final leg of the Singapore Four-Year-Old Challenge, there will be a dazzling showcase of derby couture with fashionistas donning their best dresses and tresses, hats and fascinators on Derby day.
“With the running of the Emirates Singapore Derby in July, the Club will be celebrating a history-making 20 years of partnership with Emirates, an award-winning airline. Over the years, the Emirates Singapore Derby has become one of the most-anticipated annual social and sporting events in Singapore. Singapore Turf Club will once again present one of the best horse races on turf while Emirates will showcase an exciting combination of glamour, fashion and fundraising for charity off the racetrack. We are very thankful for the longstanding partnership with Emirates and look forward to celebrating more good years together in future." said Mr Yu Pang Fey, President and Chief Executive of Singapore Turf Club.
Mr Andrew Bunn, Emirates Manager, Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei said, “Our partnership with the Singapore Turf Club is one of the longest-standing in Emirates’ history of sports sponsorship in the world. This speaks volumes for the Emirates Singapore Derby, now into its 20th year. It features among the richest races in Singapore and certainly one of the most highly anticipated. Similar to the prestigious Dubai World Cup and Melbourne Cup which Emirates sponsors, our commitment to equestrian sport has helped to grow local communities of horse-racing enthusiasts. The Singapore fraternity can look forward to yet another memorable event, both on and off the tracks.”
Racegoers can bask in the festival atmosphere on Derby day and participate in the “Guess the Emirates Singapore Derby Years of Running” contest to win a Godolphin Watch and Emirates Binoculars among other prizes.
