Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2013 was an exhilarating annual horse racing event held for the fourth consecutive year at Singapore Turf Club.

The crown jewel event of local turf, Longines Singapore Gold Cup, will return for the fourth year on Sunday November 17 at the Singapore Racecourse. With a coveted prize-money of S$1.35 million, the Longines Singapore Gold Cup is one of the most anticipated and prestigious annual races in the region. Guest-of-Honour Mr. S.R Nathan, former Singapore President, graced the charity luncheon organized in conjunction with the event, to raise funds for Grace Orchard School, a social service programme under the care of Community Chest.

Guests were treated to a luxury box accompanied by a luncheon buffet. Whilst being pampered, punters were able to place their bets for the Longines Cup race and experience the exhilaration from observing the races live from their box.

 

A philanthropic event to behold, beautifully sculpted hand blown coloured crystal horses of vigor were carried in by models decked in classic jockey equestrian chic outfits.

Horse 10, Tropaios, was the first to dash past the finishing line, joining the realms of local racing legends immortalized by their triumphs in the high profile race.
