It was a case of all things Japanese at the Singapore Turf Club’s recent Sakura Day, held on October 6, 2013. Other than origami and sushi making demonstrations for nimble-fingered enthusiasts, guests who purchased the Sakura package were not only treated to a delectable Japanese buffet and a wide range of free flow drinks, but were also treated to amazing views from the third floor grandstand of the Singapore Turf Club’s Derby Room.
The fun didn’t stop there as the lucky draw gave guests the chance to win a Panasonic Toughpad, the brand’s very latest device – the thinnest and lightest fully-rugged Toughpad running on Windows 8 Pro. As no trip to the Singapore Turf Club would be complete without their beautiful and highly knowledgeable ambassadors, the Turf Belles, several of the girls were on hand to interact and posed for photographs with guests while they enjoyed the afternoon.
Speaking about the race sponsor for the day, Mr Simon Leong, Vice President (Corporate Services) for the Singapore Turf Club said: “Panasonic is renowned for their innovative technology and believes in creating a better life leading to a better world.
The Club has also benefited from this technology by deploying one of the world’s largest Astrovision LED Display Boards at the racecourse. Now into the seventh year of the sponsorship, we are happy to announce the renewal of this strategic partnership with Panasonic for another three years.”
Over at the tracks, the fun carried on with guests watching the first leg of the Singapore Triple Crown Series, the Panasonic Kranji Mile. The series is a three race series with the Raffles Cup to be raced on October 27, 2013, and finally the $1.35 million Longines Singapore Gold Cup on November 17, 2013.
