Singapore Turf Club
The 2,000 metres-(1¼ miles) long and 31 metres wide left-handed oval-shaped sand-based racetrack at Kranji is turfed with El-Toro Zoysia, a grass patented by the University of California and is reinforced with netlon fibres.
Extensive tests and trials have shown that El-Toro Zoysia gives an excellent cushion and is ideal for galloping. Given the high rainfall in Singapore, the track’s sand base will prevent water logging and will provide a good racing surface throughout the year. An ideal camber on the home turns and a slight incline on the 400 metres home straight will make exciting finishes a regular feature.
The 1,500 metres long Polytrack is also used regularly for racing.
Training is conducted on either one of the four excellent tracks:
1,500 metres long and 25 metres wide Polytrack (Track No. 2);
