Sky Racing World launches Singapore simulcasting

5 August 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Sky Racing World, the Louisville, Kentucky-based distributor of international horse-racing content and subsidiary of Australian wagering operator Tabcorp, has announced the launch of a new simulcasting product that will make Singapore horse racing available to North American audiences. The service was officially launched last Friday, 2 August, with races from Singapore Turf Club in Kranji district.

Singapore Turf Club, a part of the Malayan Racing Association, is Sky Racing World’s exclusive partner in distributing the weekly simulcasts, which take place every Friday morning and Saturday night. First post on Friday mornings is scheduled for approximately 6:20 a.m. EST, while Saturday night racing will begin at approximately 1:30 a.m. EST.

Racing fans will profit from a collection of exciting wagering features. This includes Win & Place pools, which are blended with large Singapore-based pools, giving handicappers access to instant liquidity. This is complemented by a range of betting types, including: Exacta, Omni, Trifecta, Superfecta, Pick 3, Pick 4 and Place Accumulator.

Audiences will be afforded access to quality Singapore racing events, including the Singapore Triple Crown series, which begins in September. Inspired by the American Triple Crown, this series for three-year-olds and above takes place during the September-November period, with each race boasting sizeable prize money totals.

The series’ first race - the $1 million Group 1 Raffles Cup - is run over one mile and set for 22nd September and is followed by the $1 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth II Cup on 22 October over 1 1/16 mile. Each of the first two races are run at weight-for-age and the final leg, the $1.35 million Group 1 Dester Singapore Gold Cup on 10th November, is a handicap event over 1 ¼ mile.

The Singapore offering is the latest addition to Sky Racing World’s extensive catalog of thoroughbred simulcasting, which includes racing from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Korea. By expanding their product and further complementing U.S.-based offerings, the distributor continues to cement its status as a leading provider of world-class horse racing.

David Haslett, President and CEO at Sky Racing World, said, “The launch of Singapore simulcasting is another important step in our growth as a leading provider of international horse-racing competition. Partnering with Singapore Turf Club, the country’s only authorized horse-racing operator, also aligns Sky Racing World with an organization whose heritage dates back more than 175 years. We’re very proud to distribute this high-quality product on their behalf.”
