Horse racing and betting in Hong Kong is, in a word, amazing.
First, the Happy Valley Race course, home of the venerable Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) is a fantastic oasis in the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. Once you enter the doors, you are in a world class venue with the amazing skyline of Hong Kong city surrounding you. Second, less than 30 minutes away from the city, another fantastic race track is available in the New Territories, namely the Sha Tin Race Course.
And the betting on horse racing in Hong Kong? We're talking BIG bucks. There is so much money wagered on horses in Hong Kong that the HKJC is able to give $1 Billion HK dollars to charity each year and contributes HK$11 billion to Hong Kong's tax revenue.
In 2015, over HK$107.9 BILLION was wagered! That is almost $14 Billion USD. With only two tracks (Happy Valley and Sha Tin), Hong Kong Racing enjoyed a 5.8% increase in betting from 2014. Take all the tracks in North America and the total wagered in 2013 was $10.88 Billion. Maybe America could learn a thing or two from the Hong Kong Jockey Club about racing?
With about 83 races in the year, there were over two million people who attended the races in person!
The pools are enormous at Sha Tin and Happy Valley, so as a horse bettor, you get access to the types of pools that correspond to higher payouts.
The Hong Kong Derby for 4 year olds is raced at Sha Tin while the Happy Valley race course is home to many other Grade I races.
