“Great Day”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Did the Come Racing Tour to Sha Tin on Sat 6th Oct. Taken out by bus from YMCA meeting point on Kowloon side, had a very friendly happy guide who did a great job explaining everything about the day. greeted by HKJC staff and taken to our room in the grandstand, very nicely set up, beer and wine on offer and a buffet lunch available for 3 hours. Had a very nice table of 7 other Aussies and 1 Scotsman and they were all good company. Taken down to the members to the parade ring and out trackside to watch a race which was really interesting - just the scale of it. Glass windows overlooking the track and access to outside seating right at our table. All in all was a really enjoyable day, good value and well organised. Will do again.

“A great night at the races.”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

The size of the grandstand and the scale of the track facilities are far bigger than anywhere I've been to before. Hong Kong locals love a horse race or eight!
Easy to get into and out of before and after the races. Interesting food on offer and plenty of beer. All the ingredients for a fun night out at Hong Kong races. Cheap even if you're losing!!!

“Disappointing atmosphere”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

While the actual race course is quite spectacular, and worth a look. We were very disappointed when we visited. This is only because of what we are used to here in Australia. This is a hard core gambling scene. There is no atmosphere, no groups of young people out for a great day. This is lots and lots (45,000 the day we went) of single punters. Very few groups of 2 or more, no colour at all.
If you plan to go, go in a big group and make your own fun. There is more atmosphere in your local TAB.
