Stephen Gray Trained TIGER BOSS will be ridden by Greg Boss and the 2 have proven to be quite the team. MY BIG BOSS has been impressive and has to be considered a chance, LIM’S LIGHTNING from the Steven Burridge Stable is also well in this race.

Lachlan Ford, IRT Asia Manager, said: “IRT has enjoyed a strong working relationship with the Singapore Turf Club for over 45 years in supplying equine transport services from around the globe. We are incredibly proud to once again continue our support of the Singapore Golden Horseshoe Series. This series will showcase the best Australian bred two-year-old horses, many of which IRT has landed safely in Singapore over the past six months. IRT believes it is important for businesses to financially support those who support us and therefore we are pleased to offer the Aushorse bonus to the potential winners of the IRT Juvenile Stakes.”
Mr Simon Leong, Senior Vice President (Wagering) of Singapore Turf Club said, “We are already seeing some promising two-year-olds emerge in this year’s Singapore Golden Horseshoe Series. This third leg of the Series would be interesting to watch as the two-year-olds race on the traditional Turf surface after two legs on the Polytrack. We would like to take this opportunity to thank IRT for their continued support in helping the Club groom young equine stars into potential champions.”
In this year’s Series, an Australian-sired horse which was offered for sale at a public auction through Inglis or Magic Millions as a yearling or two-year-old (means qualified horse)* is entitled to bonuses for selected legs. If a non-qualified horse wins any of the lead-up races with additional bonuses, the respective bonus for that race will jackpot to the Aushorse Golden Horseshoe race on Friday, 13 July 2018.
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 prize money during the Series.
