What makes a racehorse club successful?
Written by: Dr Sing Kong Yuen
Date of report: Around 1990
Update: Sep 20, 2012.
Some 20 years have flown by. Racing in Singapore is no longer the same as during the time I was the "Junior Veterinary Surgeon" of the Singapore Turf Club (STC) from 1982 - 1988 and a "Veterinary Surgeon" of the Bukit Turf Club (BTC) in 1989. 1989 was my last year of employment with the BTC as I decided to go back to my small animal practice at Toa Payoh Vets www.toapayohvets.com which I started around 1982 after having been with racehorses for around 8 years.
The Singapore Totalisator Board (STB)
was formed in 1988 and appointed an agent, the Bukit Turf Club (BTC) to take over the racing
and 4-D operations with effect from 1988. The BTC replaced the STC and formed an interesting task force to reverse
the decline in the racing industry. Visits were made to racing clubs in
Malaysia, Hong Kong, South Korea and Thailand. One of the members was
me. I had written an article on the business of racing in Singapore in the late
1980s is compared with other racing clubs for an
editor of a start up racing magazine.
|How the 12 pages of the magazine was researched and published by Dr Sing Kong Yuen in 1998-1999. It took some 30 years and now, I have completed my writing of "Dr Goh Keng Swee's few good men and women" to provide a historical background to what ailments afflicted the Singapore horse racing industry in the 1980s. They are as follows:|
