The Basics

It’s hard to tell from the sheer volume of the race day crowd, but gambling is restricted in Hong Kong and bookmakers are illegal. So if you want to join the locals and place a bet, you’ll need to pay for a spot in one of the many restaurants and priority areas that are licensed for betting—despite the name, the Members’ Enclosure is open to non-members for a fee. Some Hong Kong racecourse tours provide food, drink, and a guide to help you place your bets; the Hong Kong Jockey Club runs “Racing 101” classes explaining how to pick and bet on horses.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Tickets sell out quickly for races around major holidays, such as Chinese New Year. Book in advance.
  • Racing may occasionally be suspended at short notice in case of typhoons, political protests, or public health concerns.
  • There is wheelchair access to much of Sha Tin Racecourse but travelers who rely on wheelchairs will likely want to book packages that allow a better view.
