The Singapore Turf Club (STC) will soon mark its second century as a premier sporting and entertainment destination.
Established in 1842, the Singapore Sporting Club was just a pioneer racecourse that spouted up in the Farrer Park along Serangoon Road. That startup however, would soon take shape under the mantel of the Malayan Racing Association.
