Seven Starters for Shane Edwards Sunday at Selengor Turf Club

The Shane Edwards Stable will field 7 runners Sunday at the Selangor Turf Club at the Malaysia Three-Year-Old Championship day.

SINGSURAT starts the day for the Shane Edwards Stable in race 1, the Aussie born 6yo Gelding owned by successful regional syndicator AREXEVAN from a very International family had a solid career in Singapore putting together over $120,000 in winnings before making the trip north.

CRAZY CLUB heads out next in the 3rd, the well performed 9yo has earned $440,577.00 MYR in prizemoney.

MISE EN GARDE another AREXEVAN RACING STABLE horse is yet to put any points on the board, sired by Champion Dream Ahead has been a little disappointing in her last couple of runs but expect a better effort this weekend with the very handy JORDAN MALLYON in the saddle.

REBEL FURY represents the stable in race 5 when MALLYON and Edwards team up again, this 11yo has an impressive $633,123.00 MYR in lifetime earnings and will enjoy the drop back to 1200m.

JEFFREY takes on the other 3yo’s in the Malaysia Three-Year-Old Championship, a bit of a roughie in this as he prefers it longer but if they go hard early he could well be there at the finish.

NANA steps out in the ninth race of the day looking for a hat-trick and has every chance of delivering for the BONAVENTURA STABLE.

DROUGHT is the stables final runner for the day in race 9, 6yo son of Strategic the champion sire that sadly passed away today, put in a very good effort last time out and is certainly a chance of delivering a victory.

Racing in Malaysia is growing year after year and the prize money is now very worthwhile.

Knightsbridge will be sending several horse to Malaysia to race locally, in Singapore and if they qualify over to Dubai for the racing season. Knightsbridge will be basing horses with one of the best trainers in the region, Shane Edwards at Selangor Turf Club.

The first heat saw a big upset by Sakura Japan. The second produced a popular result with odds-on favourite Relau Star scoring a runaway win. What will the third heat bring?

The Championship Final will be staged in Penang on 28 July.

Selangor Turf Club

It is a place of great tradition, where records are broken, horses triumph and winnings collected. It is the symbol of horse racing in the city of Kuala Lumpur and the Selangor Turf Club is all that and more. The Club which began its racing activities in the 1800s has over the century evolved and grown into a centre for all forms of equine activity.

In Malaysia, private membership clubs like the Selangor Turf Club run the races. Malaysian horse racing is dependent on the synergistic relationship between the Malaysian Tote Board and the Turf Clubs. This is based on the authority of the Racing (Totalisator Board) Act 1961 and amended in 1992.

The Malaysian Totalisator Board is a statutory board under the Ministry of Finance, Malaysia, established following the enactment of The Racing (Totalisator Board) Act in 1961.

Horse racing was introduced in Singapore and Malaya by the British in 1802. On 4th October 1842, the first racing club to be established was the Singapore Sporting Club, later to be renamed the Singapore Turf Club in 1924. Racing clubs in Malaysia were established later, with the Penang Turf Club first to be set up in 1864, followed by the Perak Turf Club in 1886 and Selangor Turf Club in 1896.

MRA is an association of four turf clubs, three of which are in Malaysia namely Penang Turf Club, Perak Turf Club, Selangor Turf Club and the fourth is in Singapore namely Singapore Turf Club. The Straits Racing Association (SRA) was formed in 1896 to regulate horse racing in Singapore and Malaysia and oversee the interests of the four turf clubs. The SRA was renamed the Malayan Racing Association (MRA) in 1961.

MRA’s objective is to promote the interests of horse racing in Singapore and Malaysia through the uniformity of its Rules of Racing which are applied fairly and firmly and to ensure that the spirit and professionalism of the Sport of Kings are upheld. MRA is unique as it is the only racing authority regulating racing in two different countries. MRA promulgates the rules of racing, sets the racing calendar, registers horses and horse owners, licenses trainers, jockeys and other racing personnel for the two countries.

The Association is managed by a committee comprising delegates nominated by the four associated Clubs. The Committee Members, officials and racing fraternity from both countries work in close collaboration. The Executive body of the MRA is made up of 13 delegates nominated annually by the four associated Clubs.
