The Kranji Mile is a Group One race that is held every third week of October at the Kranji Racecourse in Singapore. It is staged on a turf course for about eight furlongs of 1600 metres. This race is staged left-handed and race horses aged three and above can compete in this race. The race is conducted under weight-for-age rules with fillies and mares given a 1.5 kilogram allowance.
After the opening of the Kranji Racecourse in 1999, the Kranji Mile was formed by the Singapore Turf Club in 2000. Since then, it has been an annual thoroughbred horse race and is considered as the first leg of the Singapore Triple Crown. The other two legs are the Raffles Cup and the Singapore Gold Cup. In 2009, the Kranji Mile had a prize purse of S$500,000 and it was won by Waikato.
