Singapore Racing Group 2 Aushorse Golden Horseshoe


The finale of the six-race Singapore Golden Horseshoe Series will culminate with the running of the Group 2 Aushorse Golden Horseshoe this Friday, 7 July 2017 at the Singapore Racecourse. It will be a thrilling evening for racing enthusiasts as Singapore’s top two-year-olds vie for the $325,000 purse, a possible $80,000 bonus and the coveted trophy over 1,200m on turf.

Mr Simon Leong, Senior Vice President (Wagering) of Singapore Turf Club said, “Over the years, the Singapore Golden Horseshoe Series and its grand finale, the Group 2 Aushorse Golden Horseshoe, have demonstrated that our fledgling two-year-old horses have the discipline and competence to race at Group level. Racing fans can surely look forward to an exhilarating race come Friday, as we witness this year’s two-year-olds take their final leap for glory in the Series. Singapore Turf Club would like to take this opportunity to thank Aushorse, Inglis, IRT and Magic Millions for their continuous partnership and support for Singapore Racing!”

“The Golden Horseshoe series supports two-year-old racing in Singapore and we are proud to be partnering with the Singapore Turf Club again this year. This year’s series has already provided some exciting racing and we look forward to rewarding the owners of the leading Australian horse with a significant bonus following Friday night’s final,” said Mr Tom Reilly, Chief Executive of Aushorse Marketing.

If the winning horse for this leg is Australian-sired and was offered for sale at a public auction through Inglis or Magic Millions as a yearling or two-year-old (means qualified horse)*, it will be entitled to a bonus of $80,000 ($50,000 bonus from the Aushorse Golden Horseshoe and $30,000 bonus not paid out from the 3rd, 4th and 5th legs). Should a non-qualified horse win the Aushorse Golden Horseshoe race, the remaining bonus monies, taking in any previous bonus monies not having been paid out, will be paid to the connections of the qualified horse that won the greatest amount of prizemoney during the Series.

For the purpose of this Series, a qualified horse means an Australian bred thoroughbred foaled in Australia, carrying the (AUS) suffix, and was sold (or offered) as a yearling or two-year-old at an auction in Australia by William Inglis & Son Ltd (Inglis) or Magic Millions Pty Ltd. Any horse that is offered at an auction conducted outside of Australia or by another auction company other than Inglis or Magic Millions is ineligible, regardless of whether they carry the (AUS) suffix or when such an auction is held.
