We were in Singapore and when I realised they had a racecourse we decided to go its easy to get to on the MRT and was a fun day out. If you do go by taxi be sure to book your return as its really hard to get a cab to go back into the city. The races start at midday and on the day we went there were 11 races. We were going to get the dine in lounge option but as I didn't book in advance it was not available on the day so we paid for Gold Lounge access for $30 in the lounge you get a table, waitress service for food and drink and a good view of the finish line but it was completely soulless so we found we were downstairs more than up in the lounge. There are food options down on the ground level the usual noodles and rice dishes along with cold drinks, alcohol is beer only downstairs, wine (quite bad and expensive $27 per glass) in the lounge. Betting was easy with lots of booths to place bets. Moving round to the viewing ring and getting to watch the races next to the track was easy. There is no dress code as such especially in the ground level areas however we did see some ladies with dresses and hats but I think they were with owners so in a separate area. The racecourse is closing in October this year which is a shame the course is a bit tired but still a lot of locals will find the closure a big hole in their weekend, I know gambling is frowned upon in Singapore but to close the course will be sad. We had a great day out and I'm glad we went before it closes.

The Singapore Turf Club did not give me the impression that it was only a gaming venue for punters. On the contrary, I frequently `patronized' the place to organize community events for my constituency. We had organized Chinese New Year celebration and music carnival (MyBeats - Music to your ear) events at the Singapore Turf Club. It was a totally different experience having an event at the HDB Heartlands and at the Turf Club. Previously, I also attended a Police Volunteers Appreciation Day at the function room where we could have a panoramic view of a live horse racing in progress from the grand function room.

I was saddened that the quaint old Turf Club would be closing down soon. 6 December last year, I came here again to attend a Volunteers' Appreciation Day organized by Woodlands Division. I stayed behind to take a photograph with a horse in the ring. The memorable photo left a nostalgic feeling with the Club that it would vanish soon.

I would try to visit her again before she vanishes from Singapore.

It's such a wonderful place that it would be a shame if it closed next year. You can spend the day watching the horses run across the beautiful grass while drinking salmon. Of course, the race is impressive. I always come here first when I come to Singapore. If you are coming by taxi, it is better to make a reservation for your return trip. Of course, the train is also convenient (I recommend this if you're on the losing side).

I've been to a few horse tracks in my Asia travels, and this one is merely so-so. It is not particularly fancy or weird. It is a pretty stock track. It does cost to enter and minimum bets are $5. The track has both grass and dirt circuits. I'm not sure what the maintenance is like on the track. There was one horse that got tripped up and had to be euthanized after one of the races. You hate to see that, but it does happen. I just hope it is not a regular occurrence at this track. I would suggest skipping this one and leave it to the locals.

I am not a punter and went there only for the experience. Entry is $6 if you use Ezlink card, or $8 if you buy it at the counter for Level 1 Grandstand. "Gallop - Level 2" is a place where you can see the race from a aircon room with a viewing window. It is currently closed since COVID.
Grandstand Level 3 is $30 if you buy the ticket at the entrance counter itself. Once you enter using your EzLink card ($6), you have to pay another $30 when you tap in to go to the Level 3. L3 has tables and individual screens.

The race was exhilarating to see and all the constant shouting and cheering added to the character. But surprisingly the clean Singapore concept doesn't seem to apply here. People were smoking everywhere (in the open) and cigarette butts and soft drink cans were littering the whole Grandstand Level 1.

Dress code applies. Safe to wear shoes, full length pants and T-Shirts with collars. I did see people following no such code in the Level 1 area.

I attended an event here but would never step foot again. The venue facilities were fine for events but the racing was not something I could digest. Horses being forced to race under immense stress and jockeys repeatedly whipping horses (something you can see on the screens) was highly distressing. Even padded whips hurt - there would be no reason for using them otherwise.

If you are considering a visit, I would highly urge you to reconsider. Please remember that your money is not the only thing you are gambling with - you are also gambling with the lives of countless horses.

Not the same atmosphere as the tracks in Australia or Hong Kong but a very efficiently run venue. Helps when you win.

We received complementary grandstand tickets through the ATC for a Friday night meeting. The train from the city was 45mins and easy enough. Overall the facility is a little rundown, but the food and drink was enjoyable. Would recommend the grandstand for comfortability (air-conditioning).

Beautiful race course, the service we received was really quite good and made the day enjoyable. Would recommend the Duo Package of the Victory or Owner Level Lounge. It comes with a multi-course meal and a table that has a good view of the finish line and a TV on each table. Thanks to Mui and Karen for treating us so well the whole day. Paul and Patricia

Getting there was easy enough on the train - about 45 mins from City. The general admission area is rundown and dirty. Not what I expected at all. Cigarette butts, betting slips and beer cans strewn all over the ground. The second-hand smoke is unbearable. No wine available - only beer. We ended up only staying for a few races. I wouldn't bother.
