It has come to the attention of the HKJC that, in an interview with Taiwan’s Mirror Magazine, the Mayor of Kaohsiung, Han Kuo-yu, said the Club has expressed interest in the development of horse racing in Kaohsiung. He said the Club has assisted them to chart the requirements for land, space and equipment etc.
The Club would like to clarify that it has not been involved in any discussions with the Kaohsiung City Government regarding their plans to develop horse racing. Nor has the Club participated in any related project, including assessing the requirements for land, space and equipment as mentioned by the Mayor. The participation of any former employee(s) of the Club in the development of horse racing in Kaohsiung, as well as any advice they have or may provide, is in their own individual capacity and not as a representative of the Club.
