Records show that a racecourse existed at the Serangoon Road Race course since 1842. The Singapore Sporting Club had been formed on 4th December 1842 and it was they who administered the Farrer Park Racecourse.
  Rapid developments took place to get the course ready for the first meeting to be held on 19th February 1843, but it was not completed in time and that first meeting did not take place until 25th February 1843. The Singapore Cup was held for the first time.


Principal races, apart from the Singapore Cup, were the Kongke Cup and the Kangchu Cup. In 1933 the Singapore Cup was won by Row Boat. The most recent 2008 winner was El Dorado.
  By 1933 the Club were seeking new premises and found them just down the road at Bukit Timah. They held their first meeting on 15th April 1933. As for Farrer Park, it became an athletics track and more recently a school.
