The Hong Kong Jockey Club will simulcast for betting six races from the 2000 Guineas meeting at Newmarket Racecourse in United Kingdom on Saturday, 6 May (1st race 8:50pm).
Since its inception in 1809, the 2000 Guineas Stakes had firmly established as a premier event for the 3yo generation. It is the opening leg of the illustrious English Triple Crown, and for more than two centuries some of the sport’s finest horses have sought Classic glory over the famous Rowley Mile.
CHURCHILL, last season’s champion 2yo of Europe, is set to make his much anticipated return and will attempt to give his trainer Aidan O’Brien a record eighth win in the race.
The Guineas card is completed by important lead-up races for high class sprinters and stayers, a Listed race for Derby possibles and two valuable handicaps. Subject to change, the six races on the card are as follows:
S1-1 08:50 pm 3yo+ Handicap
S1-2 09:20 pm Palace House Stakes
S1-3 09:55 pm Jockey Club Stakes
S1-4 10:35 pm 2000 Guineas Stakes
S1-5 11:10 pm 3yo+ 81-100 Handicap
S1-6 11:45 pm Newmarket Stakes
Final declarations with barriers for the 2000 Guineas Day races will be available on the morning of Friday, 5 May.
