World-class rac­ing

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - TOP NEWS -

Thanks to the ded­i­ca­tion of horse own­ers, train­ers and jock­eys, the Club has be­come a world leader in rac­ing. In 2016, all 11 of the Hong Kong in­ter­na­tional Group 1 races fea­tured in the World’s Top 100 Group 1 races. And 26 Hong Kong horses were in the top 300 of the 2016 World’s Best Race­horse rank­ings, with eight in the top 50.

With re­gard to the strong growth in rac­ing turnover in 2016/17, an in­ter­est in Hong Kong rac­ing from com­min­gling ju­ris­dic­tions has been a ma­jor con­tribut­ing fac­tor. Hong Kong rac­ing has at­tracted more at­ten­tion over­seas ow­ing to its highly com­pet­i­tive rac­ing, large field sizes, un­par­al­leled rac­ing in­for­ma­tion and un­com­pro­mis­ing in­tegrity.
