Hong Kong Cup Field

The Hong Kong Cup field features some of the most impressive stayers in the entire world. It is a fantastic display of racing talent, with some of the most elite thoroughbred pedigrees represented each year. The impressive prize money is part of the draw to the Hong Kong Cup field, while another part of it is the date. Because it runs in mid-December, the Hong Kong Cup field is an ideal continuance from the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, particularly for those horses which arrived in Australia late and had just one or two starts.

The Hong Kong Cup field was initially restricted to local horses, as well as Malaysian and Singaporean trained runners. The next year, in 1989, Australian and New Zealand trained horses were allowed to enter the Hong Kong Cup field. European horses were allowed to enter as of 1990, then United States in 1991, and Canada and Japan the next year. As a result, the modern Hong Kong Cup field is a genuine international contest between the best of the best.
