In the past, whenever I think about horses, it only reminded me of horse carriages. Until recently, I realised it is a majestic animal which has become a part of sports or hobbies for Royalties as well as the crazy rich people!
Known as the Sport of Kings, horse racing can be traced as far back as the 16th century in England. Royalties including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and Ruler of Emirate of Dubai His High Royal Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid al Maktoum share a lifelong passion of horse racing.
Famous billionaires such as French Businessmen Alain and Gerard Wertheimer who own controlling interests of the House of Chanel; Katsumi and Teruya Yoshida from the Shadai Group in Japan known for their racehorse breeding empire; and even Singapore’s very own Philip Ng and Robert Ng Owners of Far East Organisation are fans of horse racing!
Therefore, to understand more about Sport of Kings, I was lucky to have the chance to experience horse racing with Ultima Horse Club. It is the first prestigious and luxury lifestyle club in Asia Pacific!
Debuting in Singapore last year, Ultima Horse Club is an Elite thoroughbred Racing’s Lifestyle Club with an aim to offer its members, an unparalleled experience in the world of horse racing through the amalgamation of professional expertise and horse ownership.
Founded by Dato Nicholas Ho a Serial Investor, his inspiration to launch Ultima Horse Club is to create a luxury lifestyle in the Asia Pacific where young like-minded high-net-worth individuals can come together and mingle with other like-minded people while enjoying the sports of King experience globally. Singapore is ideal as a stepping stone into the market as it is the world’s best regional business hub.
In conjunction with their Racing Director Mr Jayven See, one if Singapore’s leading horse owner, with great track records in the horse racing industry, Ultima Horse Club covers everything you need in this industry, pinhooking, racing and even breeding.
Being a part of this prestigious and luxury club, you will experience exclusive invites to horse racing events, horse trading overseas and networking with like-minded business leaders. Not forgetting the profits through trading of horses, prize money through racing as well. Families can bring their kids to enjoy privilege tour to the horse stable to understand more as the horse owner.
Ultima Horse Club also owns one of two corporate boxes at Singapore Turf Club,n which means you could enjoy your race from an air-conditioned room with a wonderful view. Not only that, there are exclusive facilities such as private viewing balcony, in-house betting counter and private bathrooms!
I was elated when I saw the private balcony, as I could experience the adrenaline rush when the horses are racing with a full view of the entire race course. There is also an exclusive ground area just for horse owners and trainers to watch the race.
This is the Parade Ring where the horses and jockeys warm up before their race. Only the horse owners, trainers and guests are allowed to enter the Parade Ring. Because I do not own a horse, I am not supposed to be there, but the management was really kind to take on a tour!
All in all, if you would like to invest in your own horse, Ultima Horse Club is the place to do so! Not only can we now ride horses in Singapore, being part of this prestigious sport is also going to elevate our net worth!
