2010 Hong Kong Cup

November 22nd, 2010

The 2010 Hong Kong Cup is due to take place at Sha Tin Racecourse on December 12 as part of the elite line-up of races conducted at the prestigious Hong Kong International Race Day.

The richest 2000m race conducted in the world, the Group 1 Hong Kong Cup is sponsored by Cathay Pacific and is worth HK$20,000,000 in prize money (approx $2.6million US).

A total of four elite Group 1 races headline proceedings at the meeting and along with the Hong Kong Cup punters and racing fans have the Hong Kong Vase, Hong Kong Mile and Hong Kong Sprint to enjoy.

One horse heading towards the 2010 Hong Kong Cup is talented filly Snow Fairy, the British galloper bypassing a run in the Japan Cup to race in either the Hong Kong Cup or the Hong Kong Vase (2400m).

Punters looking for an early guide to their Hong Kong Cup betting should always keep an eye on the top performers in the Group 2 Jockey Club Cup, which is considered the traditional preparatory race for the Hong Kong Cup.

This year the John Moore-trained Irian took out the Jockey Club Cup and is now an early fancy for the Hong Kong Cup as are runner-up Packing Winner and third placegetter King Dancer.
