“Superb Track.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

A top weeknight out in Hong Kong.
Races from 7pm till 11 and they pack them in with an eight race card. Bands were playing, plenty of beer and wine tents and a lovely race track to boot. Great way to gear up for a night out in Wanchai or Central....

“Great night out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

For anyone interested in horse racing a trip to Happy Valley racecourse on a Wednesday night is a must do experience when in HK. Big crowds with a great atmosphere and they cater for all nationalties. Be sure to read the how to bet info if intending on betting as it is quite different to Australian betting,no bookies either just the tote

I am not a betting person, but we went along to experience the night-time racing, have a few beers and some fast food.
