Easy access via MTR, clean and smart facilities, really helpful staff who will happily show you how to place your bets. A fun way to spend your time, you may be lucky, like us, and see Sammo Hung, Hong Kong Cinema legend, in the owners enclosure celebrating his horse winning!
Be aware that there's little shade for watching the race, so sunscreen and umbrellas may be useful.

Great facilities with huge screen along the finishing straight. The general betting area is a little sterile and feels like a bus terminal. Loved the parade ring, very easy to get to with the MTR stopping right there.

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.

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!!!
