This is a fun day to share with business colleagues, friends, or family (without children.) I was hosted by business colleagues from China. We had a fun filled day learning about the different ways to bet. There were 12 in our group which made it more fun to compare bets and enjoy seeing people winning. The food at the Club... More

I was fortunate to visit Sha Tin for a Wednesday night of racing. My expectation was a quiet night. I was very surprised to see so many people at the races on a Wednesday. Great atmosphere and a range of facilities. The renovated areas are first class. I was advised that Sha Tin is under a long term renovation. The... More

Visited Hong Kong in December for the Hong Kong cup. Worth a visit if you are into horse racing. Also worth doing it as a tour as you will get your food and drinks in a corporate environment which is certainly worth doing if you intend to visit. A really great day which ends with a fireworks show and nearly... More

Amazing racecourse, we went for the Longines Cup meeting, the course itself is superb and well laid out. A little more formal than happy valley which is just party party party this was a big day in their calendar and it showed. We paid the extra for the members enclosure which was worth it completely (costs £10 more) A beautiful... More

Great day at the races. Take the train out, stops directly across from race track. Use your passport and pay the extra few dollars to get into the members area. Amazing facilities and a real eye opener in how big racing is in Hong Kong. Envy of the world. Sha tin is more about the racing, where happy valley is... More

Received a complimentary pass due to being a member of a Race Club in Australia. A race every 25 minutes. Large screens everywhere you look A bit surprised that there are apparently no dress regulations in the Members area (track pants and joggers!) but handy if you don't want to pack a suit when travelling overseas . Would have also... More

Everyone way very helpful, took us some time to learn. Foreigners get to sit in a upgraded grandstand, beer is affordable, we had outdoor seats with a table, and the automated betting machines are simple. My wife and I spent the whole day here, it was a fantastic time! Highly recommended. Good food too!

Sha Tin is where Hong Kong's major racing takes place. It doesn't have the party atmosphere that Happy Valley has, but the serious side of horse racing. Pick a meeting when they host an international group 1 race.
