Hong Kong, A Day at the Races

 

20110123-_AWH7212-sRGB-2-1

 

Racing and betting at The Hong Kong Jockey Club in Sha Tin. Typically daytime races, 8 in total, start in the early afternoon and end around 5 pm.

This day the average betting totals were, as displayed on screens, around 20,000,000 Hong Kong dollars per race (1 Hong Kong dollar is slightly less worth than 1 RMB).

Behind the race track is a theater where the winners are presented after each race and where VIPs gather to be seen with the winners. The theater has different sections for “normal” visitors, members and VIPs and is an ideal place for networking.
