About Darren Yaw Singapore Equine Center

Our founder and former horse racing hall of fame jockey, Dato Darren Yaw

“How pleased I was to be a part of the building of Singapore’s first and biggest racing track is something I can hardly begin to express. There has never been an official training course for professional race riders even though Singapore hosts some of the world’s best racing events.”

Dato Darren Yaw, CEO of Darren Yaw Singapore Equine Center.

During the summer semester at the Thoroughbred Training Center, riders will practice racehorse riding skills on a variety of retired racehorses from the Darren Yaw Equine stable. Students who successfully complete the summer courses will be put in a cooperative educational work experience with a certified trainer in order to enhance their experience and skillset in order to get their Horse Racing Commission exercise rider license.
