- The Stallions Daily Bulletin in Australia published an
article stating that the $251,000 John F.Feehan Stakes-Gr.2
(1600m) at Moonee Valley on September 10 will be known as the
Dato Tan Chin Nam Stakes. It is in honour of our TOAST member
Dato Tan’s donation of funds to the Moonee Valley Racing Club
to finance a special spring series to be known as Saintly Spring
Star Award. Saintly won the Cox Plate and the
Melbourne Cup in 1996 for Dato Tan. “Through the
generosity of Dato Tan Chin Nam we have added an exciting new
concept to Moonee Valley as well as being able to pay tribute to
a man, who has been a huge yet widely underestimated player in
Australian racing,” Moonee Valley Racing Club chief executive
John Cameron says.

• 17-20 Jul 2005 - TOAST was invited to witness
and participate in the Hokkaido Selection Foal and Yearling
by the Hidaka Breeders' Association (HBA) and supported by the Japan Bloodhorse
Breeders’ Association (JBBA). We were treated to an intensive
and interesting aspect of Japanese thoroughbred breeding and
racing. There was very keen interest by Japanese to promote their
thoroughbred for racing in Hong Kong, Korea and Singapore. There were many
meetings where our views especially on the high freight cost on bringing their horses to race in
Singapore were brought up. We were interested by
their facilities and quality of their horses. We were shown
their best stallions, breeding and training facilities. They
created a very natural atmosphere for the well-being of the
racehorses. A lot of trees and bushes were planted to give the
horses a chance to relax mentally after the hard exercise and training.
We were delighted that the well-being of the horses were
emphasized. The horses were very relaxed, calm and well handled
even at the foal age. If we only adopt part of what they do, our
horses should perform better and last longer in racing. We wish Singapore
Turf Club could look into this matter seriously for the benefit
of the horse owners.
We were treated to witness the caring of horses by the
Japanese racing fraternity. Another interesting visit was the
800m straight uphill indoor track at
Northern Farm. The speed of the horses at different stages of
the straight is displayed on the monitors in the viewing room
for the horse owners. TOAST will one day plan
such a trip for its members.
