The Hong Kong Jockey Club Sha Tin Racecourse - Daytime Horse Racing

Horse racing as a sport in Hong Kong has evolved over the years.
In modern day, horse racing standards in Hong Kong are regarded as equivalent to the world-class standards.

There are two different racecourses in Hong Kong.
One of them is situated in Sha Tin.

The Sha Tin Racecourse was built in 1978.
It is the world first racecourse to offer a retractable parade ring roof so that visitors can enjoy the beautiful horses at any weather condition.

The traditional horse racing season in Hong Kong is between September and June.
There are no races in July and August as the weather is too hot and it is not suitable for horse racing.
Daytime races are usually held on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays at the Sha Tin racecourse.

The daytime races usually kick off at 1:00pm.
Visitors can enter the racecourse earlier at around 12:00pm.

To reach the Sha Tin Racecourse, you can take MTR to the Sha Tin Racecourse MTR Station.
The Sha Tin Racecourse MTR station is only available during horse racing days and not every MTR will stop there.
So, please pay special attention when boarding the MTR at the MTR East Railway and ask some of the MTR staff in case you are not certain if this MTR will stop there.

The entrance fee of the racecourse is about HKD$10.
Visitors must be 18 or above to enter the racecourses.

Average spending per person: HKD$50 Below
