There are not so many events for a racing lover to enjoy. All the horse-racing world is waiting anxiously for the few big racecourses organised throughout the year. Recently, we have had the pleasure to bet via the best Agent for Asian bookmakert on the Australian Melbourne Cup. The last month of the year also offers us a great event to bet on – The Hong Kong International Races.
The Longines Hong Kong International Race is also known as the “turf world championship”. It is hosted by the Hong Kong Jockey Club and takes place every year in mid-December (with a few exceptions), in Hong Kong, China. The first time, the racecourse was organized in January 1988 and included the Hong Kong Cup only. Only trained horses from Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Singapore were accepted, to participate in a distance of 1,800 meters. Nowadays, horses from Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, New Zeeland, Singapore and USA can compete in distances of 1,200, 1,600, 2,000 and 2,400 meters.
This year, the Hong Kong International Races are scheduled for December 10 at the Sha Tin Racecourse. Same as every year, the races are limited to 14 starters that are of 3 or more years of age. The prize fund to be distributed in the four races this year, is HK$ 84.5 million. Traditionally, the prize is awarded to the first six horses to finish, with half of the money going to the winner.
Though initially it was only one course, nowadays the event consists of four races:
