The first Exhibition Raceday will be held at Conghua Racecourse on Mar. 23, the Hong Kong Jockey Club announced on Monday. Staged by the HKJC in collaboration with the Conghua District Government, members of the Mainland public will be able to experience horse racing at a world-class standard. Five exhibition races will be held with no wagering allowed and no live broadcasts in accordance with the laws and policies of Mainland China.
“Conghua Racecourse is the first racecourse and training center for Thoroughbreds in the Mainland which meets the highest international standards,” said Hong Kong Jockey Club CEO Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges. “Since its official opening in August this year, we have witnessed how horses benefit from its top-of-the-class facilities. To support Conghua’s vision to become a national and international tourist destination with its natural beauty and hot springs, we will hold exhibition racing to showcase the sport of horse racing with the beauty and speed of Thoroughbred horses as well as our world-class jockeys in action.”
“In addition, Conghua Racecourse can also serve as a platform to support the development of an equine industry in the Greater Bay Area, and with the potential to support equine sports development for the whole nation through capability building of a strong local equestrian workforce that meets international standards,” he added.
“The Exhibition Raceday will be held according to the standards and arrangements of a regular race day in Hong Kong,” said HKJC Executive Director, Racing Andrew Harding. “Five exhibition races on the day will be run under the governance of Rules of Racing of the Club, with the participation of only Hong Kong-based horses, trainers and jockeys, including all of the sampling, laboratory analysis, veterinary regulation and other controls in place in Hong Kong.”
” Each race will be broadcast in Hong Kong with a 15 minute delay from the start of the race,” said HKJC Executive Director, Customer and International Business Development Richard Cheung. “Selected media outlets in the Mainland will broadcast the races with a one hour delay.”
