World Class Racing

The past 18 years have seen Hong Kong horse racing establish a major presence on the international stage and Hong Kong trained horses build a growing reputation overseas.

The Club’s two racecourses offer residents and visitors a unique racing experience, while the integrity, health and safety of Hong Kong’s racing operations are much admired worldwide.

The LONGINES Hong Kong International Races in December are now widely recognised as the world championships of turf racing, featuring four International Group One races on a single day – the LONGINES Hong Kong Cup, Sprint, Vase and Mile – and a total purse of HK$83 million. Together with the Audemars Piguet QEII Cup and Champions Mile held each April or May, along with the newly upgraded Chairman’s Sprint Prize, Steward’s Cup, Citibank Hong Kong Gold Cup, Standard Chartered Champions & Chater Cup and the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Cup, these international events attract top thoroughbreds – and racing fans – from both the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
