Nothing sets the tone for a happy and prosperous New Year quite like the Chinese New Year Race Day. Held on the third day of Chinese New Year, Hong Kong’s most popular horse race pits the nation's best jockeys against one another to vie for the coveted Chinese New Year Cup. In addition to the race itself, the Race Day provides guests with a whole range of other activities including: live entertainment, traditional Chinese lion dances, a merchandise bazaar, and even personal greetings from the jockeys themselves.

Traditional Race in Chinese New Year
Feb 2018 • Family
Every Chinese New Year we used to book a table of buffer lunch in Shatin Race Course celebrating the Chinese New Year, also, to greet with our relatives during the Chinese New Year. It was of the greatest day for horse racing in Hong Kong since those race goers want to get a good and lucky start during the year, the race is second to the Derby or someone claimed it is the most happy and fabolus race day in Hong Kong. One thing for certain, the attendants is the highest during the year. Since the race would arranged on the third day of the Chinese New Year and that day, according to tradition, is not so good to visit other people, so, the place to hanging around would be the Race Course. There would be special showcase during that day and the Chief Executive will officiate the opening. Members of the Jockey Club will attend as a tradition during New Year. There would be some God of Money dress up and walk around the Race Course to bring the luck for the race goers. Theat would be a wonderful time for joining the Chinese New Year Race in Hong Kong.
