The Hong Kong Jockey Club will be flying out this year’s Racing Post/SIS Betting Shop Manager of the Year winner and their partner to Hong Kong for a five-day feast of racing and hospitality.
The trip will take off with business class flights and a visit to the historic Happy Valley racetrack for the Jockey Club’s famous Happy Wednesday night racing, before the guests settle in to the first of five nights in a five-star hotel.
Before the lucky winner and their partner go on to a day of full hospitality at Sha Tin on FWD Champions Day on Sunday 26th April, they will also be hosted at the FWD Champions Day Gala Party on Friday night.
The final field has been whittled down to just 24 and the winner will be announced at the Betting Shop Manager of the Year awards lunch at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 11th November.
George Irvine, Commingling Development Director at the Hong Kong Jockey Club, commented: “Betting shops up and down the UK work tirelessly to offer a great service for their customers, so we’re delighted to be rewarding this year’s Betting Shop Manager of the Year winner with an exciting trip to Hong Kong.
“FWD Champions Day, with three Group 1 races on the card, will be a fantastic day’s racing, while Happy Valley is a bucket list trip for many racing fans. We’ll also be throwing in business class flights, five-star accommodation and a great night for the winner and their partner at the FWD Champions Day Gala Party. From everyone at the Hong Kong Jockey Club, we’d like to wish the best of luck to the final 24.”
