Chairman's Sprint Prize history
The Sha Tin Racecourse was opened in 1978 and the Chairman's Sprint Prize followed a year later.
It was first run as the Hong Kong Sprint Championship, but it was changed in 2001 when the prize money was increased to HK$4.5 million.
Since that time the prize money has significantly increased and it became a Group 1 in 1994 when it was featured in the Champion Sprint Series.
It was also added to the Global Sprint Challenge to make way for the discontinued KrisFlyer International Sprint.
It's currently ranked equal 49th in the World's Top 100 Group 1 races.
