The Hong Kong Jockey Club is recruiting its latest intake of Racing Trainees, with the closing date for applications being Friday, 24 July 2020.
The Hong Kong Jockey Club has an excellent track record of developing local talent into world-class horseracing professionals, providing young people with an opportunity to take a step towards pursing a rewarding career in a vibrant industry. For some, that can mean a race-riding career as a jockey on the world famous Hong Kong circuit.
Members of the public aged 15 or above who have completed Form Three education, are diligent, with a positive attitude, and have a passion and aptitude for sports, are welcome to apply. Officials of the Apprentice Jockeys’ School and trainers will select applicants, who must pass riding and fitness tests in August, to attend an orientation camp. The 25 applicants with the best performances will be selected to join the programme. No prior horse riding experience is necessary.
