AIR TRAVEL


OWNERS, TRAINERS & JOCKEYS
1.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club ("HKJC" or "the Club") will provide, on selected carrier designated by the Club, return business class air tickets for the connections of each selected overseas horse as follows:-

a) Owner – maximum 2 tickets
b) Trainer – maximum 2 tickets
c) Jockey – 1 ticket

2.

Only the above are eligible for travel concessions. Under no circumstances whatsoever will any additional concessions be reallocated, e.g. to a Jockey already in Hong Kong, to any connection with an interest in more than one runner or who fulfils more than one role; etc.

3.

Where a horse is jointly owned, the Club will request one owner only to be nominated as the recipient of the travel and accommodation concession.

4.

To guarantee flight availability, Owners, Trainers and Jockeys need to confirm their travel schedules to the Club as early as possible and preferably at least two weeks before the race day.

5. Connections who purchase their own tickets must seek the prior approval of the Club. They may be reimbursed the amount equivalent to the Club's official travel agent's rate for business class travel, or the actual cost of their own tickets, whichever is the lowest and whenever necessary.

ASSISTANT TRAINERS, HEAD LADS, EXERCISE RIDERS & GROOMS

A maximum of two persons per horse can travel at the HKJC's expense. If either person is unable to travel with the horse due to seat unavailability, the HKJC will provide economy class air tickets, at its discretion.
