Horses in Motion

Ten life-sized hand-painted horses custom made in USA, was specially commissioned by the Singapore Turf Club to kick-start this year’s Singapore International Racing Festival, Singapore’s biggest racing extravaganza of the year.

The horses were displayed at Plaza Singapura. But I only found two of them, the rest were displayed at other shopping malls. For more information, you can read about them in Singapore Turb Club website.


The horses were huge and looked just like the real horses except that they are very colourful. :)

Hi Alice
Love the horses - the top one is so colourful and the bottom looks real!!!

Hope your son got home ok!! Wasn't it easier when they were babies and tucked up in bed with their teddy bear????

Yes, son is back home safe and sound. Thanks for asking. Very true about raising kids. Now they are all grown up, they have lots of activities and I have to worry when they are home late. But then if they stay at home, it was glue to the puter for cyber games for hours....lol.

Hey! I don't know where Plaza Singapura is, what a shame. I have seen a similar horse in Central, Hong Kong Island, maybe from the same artist, they are hosting the Equestian Olympics in HK, it will be a big change from racing.
