Hello Readers! The annual Singapore International Racing Festival is back this year. Singapore Airlines International Cup and KrisFlyer International Sprint are just one week away from our calendar. Are you ready for this thrilling horse racing event?

Last week, I had introduce the turf belles contestant representing for Singapore Airlines International Cup 2015, and today I will be sharing an exclusive preview on what’s actually happening behind the scene at Singapore Turf Club.

We were first to visit the “Horse Hospital”, it is a place to maintain and routine health check for those thousands of horses in Singapore Turf Club. A short walk through of this place has brought my knowledge to the next level. I am impressed by the technology they used for horse check-up and also a professional medication to maintain a healthy horse.

From traditional medication to X-ray to surgery, it was a stunning moment for me to capture every procedure into my mind. I can conclude that, horses are like human, health is important and when we found out something is wrong, we cure it in professional way.

Next, we proceed on to visit the horse stable and training area. I can’t imagine how huge was the stable but total circumference can keep more than a thousand horses. Horse stable is separate into two different conditions. There is an air-con and non air-con horse stable for them to have peaceful rest time.

Horse swimming pool was the next spectacular place at Singapore Turf Club. I am amaze by the 3 meter deep pool for horses to swim as their daily exercise.
