Training the Next Generation

Each year the Club recruits young hopefuls for its Racing Trainee programme, offering them the opportunity to develop a career in racing. Trainees receive a well-rounded education including riding, stable management, physical training, financial management and traditional academic subjects, with qualifications recognised by the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications. Graduates go on to take up a variety of careers, with some entering the Apprentice Jockeys’ School, with the prospect of becoming a professional jockey.

Well-known graduates of the Apprentice Jockeys’ School, all of them successful jockeys and later trainers, include Tony Cruz, Frankie Lor, Ricky Yiu, Francis Lui, Manfred Man, Dennis Yip, Danny Shum, Me Tsui and Benno Yung.
