In an announcement dated 28 September 2015, the Singapore Turf Club announced the discontinuation of both the Singapore Airlines International Cup and KrisFlyer International Sprint.

The notification reads:  The Singapore Airlines International Cup (SIA Cup) and KrisFlyer International Sprint (KFIS) were introduced in 2000 and 2001 respectively to achieve several objectives.

These objectives include branding Singapore races internationally and uplifting the quality of Singapore horses and Singapore Racing.

Both international races together with Singapore Racing have grown in stature and prestige over the years. As the objectives set out for the two races have been achieved, the Singapore Turf Club wishes to announce that the SIA Cup and KFIS will be discontinued.

The Club would like to take this opportunity to thank all the connections, horsemen and officials who have participated in the SIA Cup and the KFIS over the years and contributed to the successes of the two races.

The Club would also like to thank Singapore Airlines for their unwavering support and sponsorship of these two international races all these years.
