A reciprocal race called the Kenilworth Cup is run every year in Kuala Lumpur and June 2018 will see that race coming of age at its 21st running.

The Selangor Turf Club was founded in 1896 under the patronage of British resident Sir Frank Swettenham.  The first race meeting took place in March 1896 and for over a century, horseracing was primarily a lavish pastime of the rich and famous in Kuala Lumpur and the Selangor Turf Club was the place to meet and to be seen.

On Saturday Selangor CEO Mike Fong will be hosted as a guest of honour by Kenilworth Racing and he will present the Gr2 Selangor Cup winner’s trophy .
