Directions to Happy Valley Racecourse

More than a sport, horse-racing has become a social affair in Hong Kong. Happy Valley Racecourse is one of the two venues in Hong Kong that accommodates this leisure.

Happy Valley Racecourse is surrounded with the skyscrapers of Hong Kong Island but it doesn’t stay under their shadows especially at night where there are exciting races. A crowd of 40,000 gamblers and racers sit on its bleachers when there is a big event. Beer tents and hotdog stands keep them energized.

Hong Kong Jockey Club - an organization who is the territory’s largest taxpayer and charity - monopolizes the betting. This privilege is a result of their reputation of placing a bet averaging 6 million HKD on each meet. The minimum bet on races is only HK$10 while all other succeeding bets are in increments of this amount. The track is tourist-friendly as you can find free betting and form guides given here.

The racing season is from September to June. Meetings are usually held on Wednesday evenings in this racecourse and Saturday afternoons in Sha Tin. Come to Happy Valley Racecourse and experience the thrill of betting or just watching. You have the option to sit in the public enclosure or in a private box, though the view from both of these points is excellent. You’ll go here for the exciting atmosphere anyway.

Restaurants and bars (having the cheapest beer in the city) are conveniently located in the premises of the racecourse as well.
