17/08/2014

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Chief Executive Officer Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges presented the trophies to the winning connections of two feature races held in the name of the Club, namely the Prix Gontaut-Biron - Hong Kong Jockey Club (G3 - 2000m, won by the Mme Myriam Bollack-Badel-trained Cocktail Queen) and Prix du Hong Kong Jockey Club (Handicap-1600m, won by the Michel Maillard-trained Cantabrico), at Deauville Racecourse, France yesterday (16 August).

The sport of horse racing has a long history in both France and Hong Kong, attracting huge numbers of followers in both jurisdictions. In 2009, The Hong Kong Jockey Club and France Galop inaugurated two races to be run in the name of Le French May and France Galop at Happy Valley each May, and conversely two races to be run in the name of The Hong Kong Jockey Club at Deauville each August. These events reflect the strong links between France Galop and The Hong Kong Jockey Club, which both play an important role in promoting global racing development. This year's Le French May Trophy and France Galop Cup were run at Happy Valley Racecourse on Wednesday 21 May.
