Happy Valley Racecourse


Descriptions
Happy Valley Racecourse is one of the two racecourses for horse racing in Hong Kong. It is located in Happy Valley on Hong Kong Island, surrounded by Wong Nai Chung Road and Morrison Hill Road. It was first built in 1845 to provide horse racing for the British people in Hong Kong. The first race ran in December 1846.
