About the Panasonic Kranji Mile
The Panasonic Kranji Mile is the first Leg of the exciting Singapore Triple Crown series that was first introduced shortly after the Singapore Turf Club shifted from Bukit Timah to Kranji in 1999.
This exciting series was inspired by the prestigious Triple Crown in the United States and it starts off with the Kranji Mile, progressing then to the Raffles Cup and lastly the Longines Singapore Gold Cup. All three races are Group 1 events for three-year-olds and above held three weeks apart and are run over the turf track.
