Trackside Breakfast with the Stars, the annual prelude to the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races, will be held on Saturday 9 December.
The fun event is a great opportunity for family gatherings, enabling parents and children to spend an enjoyable morning in the green space of Sha Tin Racecourse, with a buffet breakfast and some of the world’s finest race horses at exercise ahead of the following day’s four Group 1 races.
Tickets will go on sale from today (Monday, 20 November). A gift will be given to each customer: a 2 in 1 cushion blanket for adults and a pencil case for children.
The Trackside Breakfast event runs from 8:00 am until 10:00 am at the Public Forecourt of Sha Tin Racecourse. The event offers a rare chance to observe star horses from Hong Kong and overseas having their final tune-ups on the track before the big day, with commentaries from well-known racing presenters Angelin Chang and Simon Leung (in Cantonese). Star trainers and jockeys will be there to share their insights on the four Group 1 races for LONGINES HKIR. Also, an array of on-course activities including a photo-taking opportunity with Shetland ponies (limited quota), innovative games and workshops will be available for children.
