STC to simulcast British Champions Day live

The Singapore Turf Club will simulcast the QIPCO British Champions Day live from Ascot Racecourse in Britain, alongside the South Africa meeting from Turffontein Racecourse tomorrow.

Staged for the first time in 2011, the QIPCO British Champions Series features a total of 35 flat races run over 27 days, culminating with the QIPCO British Champions Day at Ascot.

The Champions Day will see the running of the final five races in the series, with the £1.3 million ($2.6 million) The QIPCO Champion Stakes, which is the richest 2,000m race in Europe, as the main highlight.

The first race from South Africa and United Kingdom will start at 6.30pm and 8.45pm respectively.

The QIPCO Champion Stakes will be shown live at 11.05pm.

The Singapore Racecourse Level 1 (North Grandstand) and the off-course betting centres at The Majestic, Serangoon Central, Bukit Merah and Bedok will be open for the evening meetings.

Totalisator services are also available at the Singapore Racecourse, off-course betting centres and outlets, and Singapore Pools' branches for the races from South Africa and United Kingdom during normal operating hours.
