Simulcast and betting arrangements for Gold Cup Day Two Double Trio pools on offer

15/06/2021 20:09

HKJC Horse Race Betting Limited will simulcast seven races of Gold Cup Day from Ascot Racecourse, Great Britain on Thursday 17 June. Bets will be accepted* for these overseas races and two Double Trio pools will be offered.

After the success in the last two years, The Hong Kong Jockey Club, in partnership with Ascot Racecourse, the UK Tote Group and other international wagering partners, will again offer the World Pool for Royal Ascot 2021.

Overseas pari-mutuel wagers placed through partners from the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Europe, New Zealand, South Africa and North America will be commingled into Hong Kong’s pools during Royal Ascot. The respective bet types for the World Pool are Win, Place, Quinella, Quinella Place and Tierce. This will ensure maximum liquidity and stronger opportunities for customers across the globe on the Royal Ascot meeting. Other exotic bet types that are not part of the World Pool offering will be offered as standard separate Hong Kong pools.

The ticket sales for Gold Cup Day will be available from 12:00 nn on Wednesday, 16 June. (Subject to further announcement by the Club)
