The Hong Kong Jockey Club’s list of commingling partners continues to expand with the addition of Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (GCGC), commencing with the Sha Tin race meeting this Sunday (4 December). Based in British Columbia, Canada, GCGC operates 21 entertainment destinations, including Hastings Racecourse in Vancouver, and becomes the Club’s second Canadian commingling partner following the October addition of Woodbine Entertainment Group.
“The early response to commingling from Canadian-based customers has been incredibly strong and we are very excited to add GCGC as our newest commingling partner. GCGC has a substantial reach in Western Canada, including the significant Cantonese-speaking population in and around Vancouver, where Hong Kong racing has always been popular,” said Mr. Richard Cheung, Executive Director, Customer and Marketing.
“The world’s largest per-race tote pools await GCGC customers,” added Mr. George Irvine, the Club’s Commingling Development Director, “and the timing of our races is particularly advantageous for Sha Tin meetings, which often begin in prime time for those in the Pacific time zone.”
