- Opened in 1978, this is Hong Kong's second racetrack, the main one being the Happy Valley Racecourse. Races at Shatin are usually held on Saturday afternoons but there always extra races on Sundays and public holidays. Penfold Park, which occupies the centre of the racetrack, is a popular place for parents to bring their children for outings. Monday's, days following public holidays, and race days the park is closed to the public, but if you call the park you may schedule a tour the facilities at any other time. Racing in Hong Kong is very popular with attendance ranging upwards of 46,000 people per racecard, so make sure you get there early!
