10 May 2018 - TOAST wishes to thank Mrs. Lily Ho for the preparation of the TOAST Statement of Accounts for the Year of Assessment 2017 and members Mr. Lim Swee Ann and Ms. Ko Hong Bee for contributing their time to the completion of the audit as Honorary Auditors.

22 March to 4 April 2018 - The court heard over a span of 4 days on the case of then-Trainer Mr David Hill vs TOAST Member Mr. Hong Kai Oh. Ultimately, Mr Hill succeeded on the greater part of his claim against Mr Hong, although the sums due were reduced. TOAST sympathizes with Mr. Hong and feels that the judgement could be better if the Judges and lawyers were more familiar with the Horse Racing Industry. Of concern is the conduct of a particular STC Veterinarian who had treated one of Mr Hong's horses. This Vet acted as a witness for Mr Hill at the trial, which was considered unprofessional, as STC officials should remain impartial in court disputes between trainers and owners.

8 January 2018 - TOAST attended the Singapore Racing Awards 2017 at John Jacob Ballroom, St Regis Hotel. Charger was one of the 3 nominees for the Champion 2 Year Old.
