Racecourse Entertainment

The Club’s two racecourses at Sha Tin and Happy Valley are at the heart of Hong Kong’s racing and entertainment experience. From the 2025/26 season fans will also be able to enjoy racing at the Club’s newest racecourse at Conghua, Guangzhou.  

Sha Tin Racecourse can accommodate more than 80,000 people and is where all of Hong Kong’s 12 Group 1 events are run. Happy Valley, in the heart of the city, is Hong Kong’s most popular mid-week entertainment venue, its Happy Wednesday race night parties drawing a vibrant and passionate crowd. Both racecourses have undergone a substantial HK$7.1 billion revitalisation, transforming them into centres of world-class hospitality and sporting entertainment.

Conghua Racecourse held its first exhibition raceday in March 2019. From the 2025/26 racing season it will host regular meetings run according to the Club’s rules and regulations. Fans will be accommodated in a new grandstand with a capacity of approximately 8,000 spectators. For more information see Racing Vision 2030.

Hong Kong’s racecourses are a huge part of popular life – places to celebrate festivals and holidays, not to mention Hong Kong’s iconic racing events. From the ceremonial striking of the gong for season opening to the spectacular finale of season close, there is no lack of colour or excitement. National Day and Reunification Day bring ceremony and celebration. For Ladies’ Purse Day there is glamour and style. And at Chinese New Year attendance soars, with everyone hoping for a lucky start to their new year.
