Unfortunately the dog racing is apparently closing soon, a victim of animal rights campaigners and declining interest. Consequently it is all rather run down and shabby, but well worth a visit. Catch it before it goes later this year. If it was properly done up,...More

This is the only Grey-hound racing betting place in Asia. In the 1960's, both the Hongkong and Macau citizens were crazy about this game. After the legallising of the off-course betting in Hongkong for the betting of Hongkong horse racing,the business dropped rapidly. Not many...More
