Sha Tin Racecourse is located in east of New Territories. It is the second racecourse in Hong Kong. It has a retractable roof over the parade ring, two grandstands, a big betting hall, Gift shop and racing museum etc. For the design of the racecourse, it is ‘Classical British’ Style. It gives audience a better view of the race.

In Hong Kong, betting in horse race is a very common activity. It just cost 10 HKD to get in the racecourse. However, it is very important that not to become problem gambling.

 One of the activity of the event is photo opportunity with Shetland ponies.

This is the Sa Sa "Charming Lady" Make-up Workshop.

The horse was going to the gate.

The naught horse didn't want to race.

Finally, it had to withdraw from the race.

The winning horse rider was waving to the audiences.

There are a lot of different restaurant. If you want to have a fine dinning there, you have to join the Jockey Club and have reservation.

It is my first experience of visiting the Sha Tin Racecourse. It is a special race event named ‘Sa Sa Ladies’ Purse Day’. Every audience could get a gift in the entrance. I was very lucky; I saw a horse being naught that lastly had to withdraw from the race. It is a very rare situation.
