The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) is operating a Racecourse at Conghua in Guangdong Province, South China, which officially opened in August 2018.
The Conghua Racecourse (CRC) is a major strategic project of HKJC as a cross-border home of HKJC’s stabling, training and racing facilities to support Hong Kong racing operations.
It is a 150 plus hectare horse training facility designed to accommodate more than 650 horses from Hong Kong. By transferring horses to CRC for training, it enables HKJC to upgrade training facilities to maintain world-
