The Singapore Gold Cup is the richest race on the Singapore racing calendar with a history dating back to 1924.
First run on October 18, 1924 at Farrer Park racecourse, Thelasocrete won and took home only $1,600. Now run over 2,200 metres under handicap conditions, the time-honoured race now carries a total purse of $1.35 million.
In Singapore Gold Cup history, multiple-champion trainer Ivan Allan holds the record for the most number of wins – nine, while Jerry Sung of Auric Stable holds the record for owners on five wins.
El Dorado (2008, 2009 and 2011) is with Three Rings (1954, 1956 and 1957) the only two horses to have won the Cup three times.
Last year, Bahana gave trainer Stephen Gray his first Singapore Gold Cup win. Sponsored by Dester for the second year running, the Singapore Gold Cup is the third Leg of the Singapore Triple Crown Series after the Panasonic Kranji Mile (1600m) and Raffles Cup (1800m) run earlier in October.

It’s where foodies, explorers, collectors, action seekers, culture shapers, and socialisers meet―and new experiences are created every day.

Dester 100% Malt (5% alcohol) is a full-flavoured, aromatic brew designed and specially developed by Lubritrade, a company that has been in the alcohol industry for the past 25 years in the region. Discovering a niche for a local premium beer, the company gathered a team of brewing specialists and beer connoisseurs in their product development team to create their own unique European styled pilsner recipe. Dester 100% Malt is specially commissioned to be brewed in Korea by Oriental Brewery, a brewing company established since 1952, using premium hops and the finest quality malt. With the first sip, drinkers will experience a deep malty flavour from the finest golden malt. The rich body of the beer is complemented by the slight lingering sweetness of pure malt. The beer’s perfect gold and amazingly smooth finish distinctly leaves a clean and crisp finish on the palate. So smooth and rich, Dester 100% Malt is a definite crowd-pleaser which makes one wishes for another.
Inspired by the luminosity of the lager against the morning light, the company crafted the name Dester from its Dutch equivalent “The Star”, signifying a time of celebration and glory.
Best served chilled at 4C, Dester 100% Malt is a flavourful, malty brew that pairs well with fresh seafood and equally rich delectable local cuisines.
Dester 100% Malt is now widely distributed and enjoyed in Singapore and Malaysia.
