Trackside Breakfast with the Stars, the annual prelude to the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races, will be held on Saturday, 7 December.
The event is a great opportunity for family gatherings, enabling participants to spend an enjoyable morning in the green space of Sha Tin Racecourse, with a buffet breakfast, and an opportunity to view some of the world’s finest race horses having their final tune-ups ahead of the following day’s four Group 1 races.
The Trackside Breakfast runs from 8:00 am until 10:00 am at the Public Forecourt of Sha Tin Racecourse. Well-known racing presenters Angelin Chang and Simon Leung (in Cantonese) will invite star trainers and jockeys to share their insights on the four Group 1 races for LONGINES HKIR. Also, an array of on-course activities including games, workshops and clown performance will be available for children. A gift will be given to each customer: Multi-function Travel Kit for adults and a Mini-Horse Plush for children.

Adult and child tickets are available at $130 and $60 respectively. Children under three years of age are admitted free (no seat is allocated).
