"Trackside Breakfast with the Stars", the ever-popular annual prelude to the LONGINES Hong Kong International Races, will be held once again this year on the day before the Sunday showpiece event, Saturday 13 December (Photo1). It offers a great opportunity for family gatherings at which parents and children can enjoy a fun-filled day out together ahead of the four International Group One races. Tickets will go on sale from today.
The Trackside Breakfast runs from 8:00 am until 10:00 am at the grandstands of Sha Tin Racecourse. The array of on-course activities will include a breakfast buffet, free gifts as souvenirs, photo-taking with Shetland ponies(limited quota), innovative games and workshops for children, world-class horses in action, and racing experts and commentators sharing their insights.
The event offers a rare chance to observe local and overseas star horses perform their final test runs on the track before the big day, with commentary from well-known racing presenters Angelin Chang and Simon Leung (in Cantonese). Racing fans will also get the chance to exchange insights with owners and trainers involved in the International Races.
