[Tue 12] Horse racing
Posted February 11th, 2013 - 5:25 am by from Hong Kong Island, China (Permalink)
Hi, I wanted to go see the horse racing on some day and it seems that the race at the start of new year might be an interesting choice.

http://campaign.hkjc.com/en/2013-cny/2013-cny-index.aspx

It's on Tuesday, starts at 11:00 in Fo Tan racecourse. Entrance seems to be either free for tourists or $10.

Who's in?

I would like to ask the locals if I have the correct information and also to warn us if we need to get there 2 hours in advance to avoid the crowds. Thanks

After speaking to people on Saturday about this I made an activity so people can see what a few of us are doing if they'd like to join us .

So my number is +852 657 803 44.

I think I'll try to get there at 11 to see the festivities (http://campaign.hkjc.com/en/2013-cny/2013-cny-event.aspx). But I'm not sure if I'll be able to get out of bed in time. If you want to meet at that time, let me know. A good meeting place could be Tai Wai MTR station, just the one before the racerourse (and also where I happen to live :)

I suppose more people will come for the first race (around 12:00 or 12:30), hopefully we'll be able to coordinate using mobile phones, I have no idea what it's going to look like.

If you want to place a bet, there's some basic info: http://campaign.hkjc.com/en/2013-cny/2013-cny-race.aspx
