2010 Hong Kong International Race Day

On Sunday December 12 one of the biggest overseas race meetings will take place at Hong Kong’s esteemed Sha Tin Racecourse when the 2010 Hong Kong International Race Day featuring four Group 1 features lights up the track.

Conducted by the Hong Kong Jockey Club and sponsored by Cathay Pacific Airways, the Hong Kong International Races are considered to be one of the world’s premier series of races held on a single day.

The four Group 1 events at the Hong Kong International Race Day meeting are the:

  • Hong Kong Cup (2000m) – worth $20 million HK (approx. $2.6 million AUS) and open to three-year-olds and upwards. The Hong Kong Cup is the richest turf race of its distance in the world and is the headline event of the day, offering punters a very lucrative prize pool.
  • Hong Kong Mile (1600m) – worth $16 million HK (approx. $2.3 million AUS) and open to three-year-olds and upwards.
  • Hong Kong Vase (2400m) – worth $14 million HK (approx. $1.9 million AUS) and open to three-year-olds and upwards.
  • Hong Kong Sprint (1200m) – worth $12 million HK (approx. $1.7 million AUS) and open to three-year-olds and upwards. The Hong Kong Sprint is the final leg of the coveted Global Sprint Challenge series of races that includes two Australian events with the Group 1 Lighting Stakes and the Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic and attracts the largest number of Australian horses of any of the Hong Kong International races.

The only Australian horse racing at Sha Tin this Sunday is Tony Noonan’s classy mare Ortensia who will line up in the 2010 Hong Kong Sprint.

Melbourne Cup winner Americain, the Alain de Royer Dupre-trained French stayer who defeated Maluckyday and So You Think in this year’s Melbourne Cup, will be the headliner in the 2010 Hong Kong Vase.

One of Australia’s champion jockeys Nash Rawiller will represent Australia during the four-day international jockey’s series at Happy Valley, Hong Kong’s other major racing venue, but is yet to secure a mount for the Hong Kong International Race Day at Sha Tin.

Star Melbourne jockey Craig Williams, however, has booked a ride on Sunday aboard English galloper Glass Harmonium in the 2010 Hong Kong Cup, following which the horse will be sent to Australia to race under trainer Mike Moroney.

Williams will also ride Ortensia for her Hong Kong Sprint bid.
