Badges and Parking LabelsFor Owners whose horse is in training
Each Owner whose horse is in training is issued with a seasonal car park label allowing access to the Grandstand II Car Park at Sha Tin. Distribution of Owner’s badge(s) and car park label are as follows:
|Owner Type||No. of Badges||No. of Car Park Labels|
|Sole Owner||1 Set||1|
|Partnership (2 partners)||2 Sets||2|
|Partnership (3 partners)||3 Sets||3|
|Partnership (4 partners)||4 Sets||4|
Syndicates who have been Owners since the 2000/2001 season can continue to enjoy their existing race day privileges as long as they have, on a continuous basis, at least one horse in training or been granted an Import Permit.
Sole Owners can now enjoy enhanced parking privileges when attending Sha Tin meetings. In addition to their normal car park label, a total of 20 car park coupons (for Sha Tin meetings only) will be issued to each sole Owner, and 40 coupons to each sole Owner with two or more horses in training. Coupons will be sent out every three months to Sole Owners for exchanging daily car park labels at the entrance of the Sha Tin Grandstand II car park. These coupons are not valid on major racedays (e.g HKIR, Chinese New Year, etc.)
For Owners whose horse has been retired
Any Owner whose horse is retired from racing during the season may retain the Owner’s badge(s) for the remaining balance of the season in which his horse is retired plus the following season. However, such Owner may retain the car park label(s) only for the remaining balance of the season in which his horse is retired. Any Owner selling a horse will lose his/her Owner’s badge(s) and car park label(s) once the horse is sold.
Please refer to Go Racing for more details on owner facilities.
Owners can visit their horses at stables compound while their horses are in training but they are requested to wear their Owner badge and obtain visitor badges for accompanying guests from the security post at the track entrance gate. They should only visit their own horse(s) and, may visit the stables of other trainers by invitation.
Nevertheless, owners will not be permitted to enter the stables compound to visit their horse on any race day or at the quarantine stables when they are in quarantine.
Opening hours of the stables compound for stable visit:
|All Days (except race days)||Opening Hours|
|Mondays to Fridays||5:30am - 9:00am, and 3:30pm - 6:30pm|
|Saturdays or Sundays||3:30pm - 6:30pm (by appointment with Trainer or the allocated Assistant Trainer of the visiting stable)|
In addition to stable visit, owners can also view their horses at the Trainers’ Stand during morning Trackwork, Barrier Trials and Stalls Tests.
Safety Reminders for Stable Visitors
1. Always be accompanied by your Trainer or his representative throughout the visit.
2. Always check with your Trainer or his representative to ensure that the food you brought to the stable is suitable for feeding your horse (no feeding is allowed on the day preceding a race day)
3. Always follow the safety rules below when feeding and handling your horse
Proper Ways To Approach a Horse
- Do speak to your horse with a gentle voice before approaching.
- Do approach the horse from the left side of its shoulder.
- Do position yourself on the same side where the handler stands.
- Do not approach the horse form the back or stand right in front of it.
- Do not stand close to its flanks or hindquarters as the horse can cow-kick and may injure you.
- Do not make any sudden movements or noise as the horse is sensitive to it and may become restless.
- Do not enter any horse stall to watch or touch your horse as it is not recommended.
