Due to ongoing unrest in Hong Kong, the decision has been made to withdraw our 2019 Hong Kong International Races Tour.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
What are the Hong Kong International Races?
To most of us living in Australia, Christmas is a time of giving, generosity and seeing old family members that you haven’t seen since, well, last Christmas. Add in eating, drinking and being merry, and you have the perfect Yuletide combination over those warm last few days of December.
But wait! The Australian horse racing fan may have something to say about what makes the perfect Christmas. That’s because, at the tail-end of each year, the racing calendar brings down the curtain on 12 months of equestrian action with the Hong Kong International Races, held in one of the world’s most exciting cities.
It’s on like Hong Kong!
Jointly-hosted between two revered racecourses – the Sha Tin and the Happy Valley – the Hong Kong International Races is split between four main events, each of which bring with them their own sense of prestige and glory. The Cup, Mile, Sprint and Vase attract racing fans from across the planet and, with Motive Travel, you can experience each and every one of them.
Make sure that you’ve got your Christmas shopping done early, before treating yourself to a trip to Hong Kong! And with US$12,000,000 at stake, putting your dollars on the right horse could see you returning to Australia with the Christmas presents paid for (and potentially even next year’s!)
Anyone who is anyone in the horse racing scene will be present in Hong Kong during this buzzing week in December – owners, jockeys and trainers – who wouldn’t want to rub shoulders with them?
We repeat, due to ongoing unrest in Hong Kong, our 2019 Hong Kong International Races tour has been withdrawn.
We do hope that 2020 will see better times for Hong Kong.
