Leading media, sponsors and racehorse owners from across China were drawn to the Swatch Art Peace Hotel in Shanghai for the official Chinese launch of the CECF Singapore – the first international China Equine Cultural Event held by the China Horse Club.

The newly announced event will be held in the world class centre of Singapore over the weekend of 21st – 22nd February 2015 and will promote some of the best virtues of China as part of its mantra of ‘Bringing the World to China and China to the World’.

The CECF Singapore will be a multi-faceted event with the lynch pins of the festival being a charity cocktail party and an elite day of thoroughbred racing that will see Chinese owners compete for the richest race prize ever run in Singapore. The festival will also promote Chinese culture and the arts, charity and be a peerless networking opportunity for an international audience.

The Chairman of the China Horse Club, Mr Teo Ah Khing, and Chairman of CECF Events, Mr Ng Chee Choy, were joined by Sun Bing (Vice President of the China Daily Website), Tian Qiang (Vice Secretary of Asia-Pacific Financial Council), Hu Xue Fei (China Horse Industry Association), Jin Yu Sheng (Hurun Report Business Development Director), Li Gang (General Manager of Caissa [Shanghai]), Cheng Cheng (Deputy General Manager of Pacific Links [Shanghai]) and Xu Ruifen (Vice President of Oceans) in a symbolic ceremony to officially launch the CECF Singapore.

The occasion also saw the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the China Horse Club, China Daily Website, Asia-Pacific Financial Council (APFC), Caissa, Hurun Report, PacificLinks and Oceans to work together for the betterment of the China Equine Cultural Festival both locally and internationally.


CECF was successfully held in Hohhot and Shanghai in 2013 and 2014, respectively. The Lion City is CECF’s first venue outside of mainland China, an international platform that will push against all boundaries and establish a bridge between the east and the west. Singapore Turf Club, with its 173 years of racing history in Singapore, will join CHC to explore opportunities in the Chinese market. “CECF will contribute to Singapore’s tourism industry by positioning the vibrant Lion City as the destination to be at for ultra high net worth Chinese travellers. Riding on the 2014 theme of ‘bringing China to the world and the world to China’, CECF Singapore is the perfect opportunity to put this theory into practice,” said Mr Teo. The press conference also included a segment in which participants could learn more about racing and other business opportunities available during CECF Singapore in February.

CECF Singapore is scheduled on the 21 and 22 February, the third and fourth day of Chinese New Year. It will be the time the richest race in the local scene will be held (G1 CECF Singapore Cup), a perfect opportunity for horse owners from mainland China to step up their game on an international platform.

During this two-day festival, CHC members and guests will enjoy a spectacular cocktail party and an exciting race day. There will also be a programme for guests that includes closed door shopping experiences with premium brands, tailored seminars, an invitation-only after party, hospitality packages, charity art auctions and more. CECF Singapore will provide Chinese horse owners an exclusive experience while also enabling them to interact with and foster connections with other outstanding international members of the thoroughbred industry.
