To commemorate Singapore Turf Club’s 180th year of racing, sports and recreation, the Club partnered SGEnable, a focal agency and first stop for disability and inclusion in Singapore, to create a collection of corporate gifts showcasing the remarkable talents and abilities of artists under the SG Enable’s initiative, i’mable Collective. This initiative serves to create a viable market for products made or designed by persons with disabilities.
