Hong Kong Racing Previews, Tips & Betting Predictions


Thoroughbred horse racing in Hong Kong is insanely popular and the quality level of racehorse is up there with the best racing juristictions in the world.

There are many reasons why racing in Hong Kong is so popular. They have only two tracks (Sha Tin and Happy Valley) which saturises the competition to two local venues and the lack of competition means all racegoers are at the one venue.

Another aspect is the quality of thoroughbred on show. Some of the best horses are on show in Hong Kong, including notable exports from New Zealand and Australia. But, the bigger reason why they get massive crowds is the ban of off-course betting.

Punters in Hong Kong flock to the track, usually getting crowds of 80,000+ and more than 40,000 people to a trials meeting, all because they can't use bookmakers at home. Luckily for us, we can and we get to enjoy the great racing and odds on offer in Hong Kong.
