PESTA SUKAN CUP

PACKED AND GONE (Leslie Khoo) wins the 
last running of the Pesta Sukan Cup in 1992. 

The Pesta Sukan Cup was introduced in 1970 to coincide with the annual Pesta Sukan sports carnival popular in Singapore at that time.

It began as a staying race and was staged over varying distances until it was turned into a sprint in 1991.

The inuagural running, over 2,212m, was won by JOINT COMMAND II, ridden by T S Chiam.

In the years it was staged over 1,600m, some top-notch ‘milers’ cropped up in the winning list including HAWAIIAN SONG (1983), BEST BOLD (1984), NOSTRADAMUS (1987), SAUGATUCK (1989) and BATMAN (1990).

BECQUEREL, who later stood at stud at the National Stud Farm, won the race in 1991 when it first staged over 1,400m. The last running pf the Cup the following year was won by PACKED AND GONE, ridden by Leslie Khoo, who is now a trainer.

The Pesta Sukan Cup was discontinued in 1993 and in its place came the Silver Cup.
