My first hand experiences attending a horse racing carnival started when I was studying in Australia. Initially, I didn’t know much about horse racing as a sports and cultural festival event. During my 4 years of stay in Australia, learning and assimilating into the local culture, I started to know and learn about Melbourne Cup, its roots, festivities, sports and horse racing. This is a huge horse racing carnival and this is a race, the race that stops a nation. That was my maiden entry into experiencing a horse racing carnival.

Upon returning to Singapore, I didn’t go back into attending horse racing events. I was busy building up my business career, business networking, social media networking and also my photography portfolio. Singapore has major horse racing carnivals and they were regularly featured in the papers. In the year 2015, I stepped back into the horse racing carnival and festivities again, with the Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015. I was invited by Singapore Turf Club to the prestigious horse racing event and it felt like my good old undergraduate days in Australia, suited up smartly for the Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015.

The Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015, a prestigious Group 1 racing event on the Singapore racing calendar. It was a fun and interesting time at a glamorous sporting event in Singapore, feeling good to be part of the Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015 racing event. I took the Longines signature cocktail, the Longines Blue, to the viewing deck and prepare to watch the supporting racing action.

Longines is the sponsor for Singapore Gold Cup and we had an opportunity to view the beautiful Longines watches on display at the lounge. The exquisitive range of Longines watches, a well known luxury watch brand globally. They are the perfect time pieces and time keepers for the people who love watches and for those who love sporting events. A perfect combination and partnership for Longines and the Singapore Gold Cup.

The beauty and elegance of the Longines watches, represented by world famous celebrities. It’s not just an attitude, it’s also an aura of pride and confidence.

Watching a sports event live and up close, it is spectacular and exciting, to see, to feel and to enjoy the racing adrenaline, with supporters cheering them on from the sidelines.

At 5:55pm, the main race, the Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015 begun with high speed racing action, cheered on by the crowds as they raced towards the finishing line.

It was a close race, a fight to the finishing line, to determine who is the champion for Longines Singapore Gold Cup 2015. Although there can only be one winner, the rest of the racers behind the pack made it a memorable sporting racing spectacle to watch and enjoy for all.
