Sha Tin Racecourse
Sha Tin Racecourse Review
This popular race track is newer (it opened in 1978) and larger (the capacity is 83,000) than the one in Happy Valley, and it's a spectacular place to watch a race. It's one of the world's most modern courses and, as such, is the venue for all championship events, including the official equestrian events during the 2008 Olympics. Racing season is from September through June. The racecourse has its own stop on the MTR East Rail line (Racecourse) that is open only on race days.
Whether you enter Sha Tin by road or rail, you'll be amazed to find this metropolis in the middle of the New Territories. One of the so-called "new towns," Sha Tin underwent a population explosion starting in the mid-1980s that transformed it from a town of 30,000 to a city of more than a half million.
