Happy Valley Racecourse

Happy Valley Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Happy Valley, Hong Kong. It opened in 1845, at Wong Nai Chung Rd.

History of Happy Valley Racecourse

1845 – Happy Valley Racecourse was opened in 1845 and managed by a non-profit charitable organization to provide entertainment and social activity in Wan Chai District, Hong Kong.

1846 –150 years ago, British military officers built the first course, while the first races were held on December 17th and 18th of 1846.

1918 – A temporary grandstand collapsed on February 26, 1918, knocking over hot food stalls that set bamboo matting ablaze, resulting in 590 deaths.

1940s – Racing was halted during the Japanese occupation and did not resume until after liberation, and the city recovered in 1947. Since then, horse racing has continued to be one of the core entertainments of Hong Kong people.

1973 – Another major development came when the Club introduced night racing at Happy Valley in 1973. The floodlit inaugural event on October 17 was an instant success and paved the way for regular night races on Wednesdays.

Name Origins of A “Happy Valley”

Ironically, the racetrack is situated on a reclaimed marshland formerly utilized for farms and cemeteries. Many people died due to malaria and were buried in the cemeteries in the valley. A “happy valley” was a euphemism for a graveyard; thus, the name was created.
