Located in Wan Chai District, Hong Kong, Happy Valley Racecourse is one of two racecourses in Hong Kong, the other being Sha Tin. The course was first built in 1845 to provide horse racing for the British in Hong Kong. Over the years, horse racing became more and more popular amongst the locals. The area was previously swampland, but the only flat ground suitable for horse racing on Hong Kong Island. Racing at Happy Valley usually takes place on a Wednesday evening, and at the weekend on the odd occasion. Open to the public as well as the jockey club, the course features seven-story stands, accommodating approximately 55,000 spectators. Each year, the International Jockey Championship is a contest held at the Happy Valley Racecourse. The challenge showcases top riders from around the world competing for the title of International Riding Champion.
