Happy Valley to host curtain closer

Happy Valley Racecourse

The Hong Kong Jockey Club announced on Monday a change of plans for the final meeting of the 2019/20 racing season.

The final race meeting of the season will take place at Happy Valley on Wednesday, 15 July, 2020. The fixture will serve as the replacement for the 18 September, 2019 race meeting, which was cancelled earlier this season. There will be no replacement of the 13 November, 2019 race meeting, which was also cancelled.

The season was originally scheduled to finish up on Sunday, 12 July, 2020 at Sha Tin. It is the first time Happy Valley has hosted the season finale since the 2012/13 season, the year local trainer Dennis Yip won the trainers’ premiership.
