A new addition to international racing is the Hong Kong market. Only recently have we been allowed access, so you may be unsure on the ins and outs of their side of the game. Check out our brief guide below..

Brief guide to racing in Hong Kong

  • Racing season starts in September and ends in July
  • Total of 88 race meetings a season varying between day meetings at Sha Tin and evening meetings at Happy Valley
  • Rating system is similar to the one used in England with most races split into classes with Class 5 been the lowest standard of racing and Class 1 been the highest
  • A new horse from the Southern Hemisphere usually starts with a rating of 52 and Northern Hemisphere bred horses usually start with a rating of 57
  • If a horse wins, between 5-7 points are added to its rating and if it comes last in a race then points are deducted
  • Group races usually only have horses rated 120+ running in them
  • Most races are handicaps so the higher rated horses carry more weight than the lower rated horses in the race
