    One of two major horse racing venues in Hong Kong
    The Sha Tin Racecourse at Penfold Park is one of two racecourse in Hong Kong managed by the Hong Kong Jockey Club. The other is Happy Valley on Hong Kong Island. Races usually occur here on weekends and public holidays during season (September to July). Opening times are 11am and races usually begin at 1pm. Do visit the Hong Kong Jockey Club website - Sha Tin Racecourse pages to see updated calendar of events and to learn about the various venue features - entrance requirements, seating, betting hall, dining and package offers which might interest you. The Tourist Zone, a popular Grandstand area for expats and visitors to Hong Kong is just HK$30 per person to enter on race days. Note: The most convenient way to visit the Sha Tin Racecourse is by way of the MTR Racecourse Station (a bypass of the East Rail Line) at Fo Tan. This station is only open and accessible on race days. Otherwise, you can simply alight at Fo Tan station (Exit C) and follow the sights next to and through the Palazzo residential complex and along a ramp that takes to the racecourse entrance (7-8 minute walk from the Fo Tan Station). Just follow the crowd making their way into the tracks.

    Brunch at Haymarket
    Had brunch at The Haymarket which brings rustic England to Sha Tin Racecourse. There were counters for cooked to order omelettes, salad and sashimi bar. At the far end was a patisserie bar which becomes a dessert bar at 1:30pm. The omelette was amazing, it was soft and fluffy with a fragrant egg taste and the potatoes, mushrooms and cheese made it extremely yummy. As well as the food, Sha Tin Racecourse was very memorable as I got to film a promo there for HKJC.

    Beyond racing
    Watching a live horse race has long been an indispensable part of any Hong Kong trip. Even for non-gamblers, the racecourse itself is very enjoyable. Penfold Park, a lush open space with pleasant greenery and lakes, is a perfect weekend respite. The peaceful environment and panorama are unparalleled in the city. It is also one of the few pet-friendly locations. When fed up with the urban bust and crowd, this will be a lovely option.

This place is a lot of fun. Very spacious and the amazing vibes. First time in my entire life to attend something like that. It was very crowded but it didn't stop me for enjoying it there to the fullest :)

If you like excitement - place a few bets on the Hong Kong race horses and spend a nice day - recommend you dod not miss out going to the tracks in Shatin, and if you have any members as friends go enjoy some nice buffet meal with your favorite drinks

the Shatin racecourse is upgraded and still upgrading continuously - this is a place where one can come and relax with some friends - enjoy their horse racing and excitement watching the races, the restaurants for Owners and Members are all very good, though at times you will not be able to eat whatever you like due to the menu always packed with Pork and Beef items, i had written to the HKJC to please expand their menu's to more seafood / fish / chicken dishes instead of only concentrating on Beef and Pork which a lot of Asians does not touch and will not appreciate at all..

do not miss NIght Races at the HKJC Happy Valley it is a Must for all racegoers.

Went to Sha Tin for the Hong Kong Cup (first time). Was great to see. Initially I thought there were a lot of people, but was told that the numbers were well down due to the protests. Paid for a table at the Legends Pavilion (level 6) and was well worth the experience. Unlimited food and beverages. Was very comfortable, but about 200 metres from the finish line. Didn't really matter as the TV coverage was excellent.

We were picked up and take to the races. The buffet was delicious, drinks were plentiful and the staff looked after us very well. We could see the races from inside or go outside. We were taken to the viewing ring and to the finish line. It certainly is a great day at the races in Hong Kong.
