After a 10-month racing season, jockeys and horses are now enjoying their relaxing summer holiday. Horses will come back to trackwork riding at the end of July, while jockeys will start training in late August. However, outside the restful racecourses, there are still a group of youngsters fighting for a better future for the Club.
Well-known professional jockeys and trainers as Tony Cruz, P F Yiu, K W Lui, K L Man, C S Shum, Y S Tsui, M Chadwick, and the rising star K C Ng, they enjoy a high reputation both in HK and abroad as making efforts to win honour for HK in international competitions. Actually, they are all from the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s Racing Development Training programme (formerly called Apprentice Jockey’s Programme). During their training, they were required to clean up stables, improve themselves mentally and physically and even represent HK like Vincent Ho to compete in Asian Young Guns Challenge in Australia.
Everyone has a dream. When I was young, I always dreamt that I could be a racing hero at Sha Tin Racecourse. It is obviously impossible now, but as a racing fan, besides watching live meetings and betting, we could also encourage young people to join the racing industry. It’s a way not only making contributions to the Club, but also broadening career horizons for the youngsters.
The recruitment of racing trainees is open now. If you are interested, why not have a try? Perhaps it will be your career for life!
