Singapore: Beauty Queens Head to Queen Elizabeth II Cup
An anticipated yearly tradition, Singapore Turf Club will host the annual Queen Elizabeth II Cup (QE II Cup) on Sunday, 4 June 2017. The Singapore Racecourse will be decked out with classic British grandeur to pay homage to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who celebrated her Sapphire Jubilee on the throne in February this year.
The QE II Cup was inaugurated to mark the visit of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to the Singapore Racecourse at Bukit Timah in 1972. In 2006, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II visited the Singapore Racecourse again, this time at Kranji, to witness the running of the QE II Cup.
Racegoers can look forward to a race day of royal proportions at the Singapore Racecourse with the QE II Cup Marquee Package, available at $98 per person. On top of a palatial buffet spread, complete with free flow of juices and soft drinks, guests get to watch the day’s exciting races up close from the track side. Harking back to the glamourous headwear on parade at iconic horse races in Great Britain such as the Royal Ascot, there will be a “Best Hats on Tracks” Contest, where five regal ladies crowned with unique hats will compete to win attractive prizes. The Beer Drinking Contest, a perennial crowd favourite, will also make a return this year.
In keeping with the pomp and pageantry, the Club will see two reigning beauty queens – Miss Universe Singapore 2016, Cheryl Chou, and Turf Belle 2016, Joeypink Lai, making an appearance. The pageant winners will be mingling with the guests and offer photo opportunities. Additionally, they will also be putting their discerning eyes to good use as guest judges for the “Best Hats on Tracks” Contest.
