Wazzup Pilipinas!

Asia is home to some of the most exciting and lucrative horse racing events on the planet. If you love seeing the sight of these elegant animals racing around the track then here are some of the continents best races and events to look out for.

The Chinese New Year Race Day, Hong Kong

This event is staged by the Hong Kong Jockey Club. It takes place each year, always on the third day of the Chinese New Year holiday. The meeting is held at the Sha Tin Racecourse.

Prizes in the races run up to a massive $120 million. The 2020 event had three big races, with the Chinese New Year Cup being the main one. The Hong Kong Classic Mile and the Centenary Vase were the other races run earlier this year.

This race day isnt just about the horses, though. It also includes interesting features such as a traditional lion dance, gourmet food, and even feng shui advice from an expert. You can expect to see some celebrities from China and further afield at the event. There is even the chance to get luxurious free gifts like gold pens.

The Nakayama Grand Jump, Japan

The race in Japan started out in 1999 and is run over 4,250 meters. It is a Grade I steeplechase event that is famous for the incredibly difficult racetrack that the horses need to go around.

With prize money totaling some $1.7 million, the Grand Jump attracts big-name horses and jockeys from around the world. It is run at the Nakayama Race Course in Funabashi every April. If you need betting odds explained to you then it is well worth taking a few minutes to do so before watching this race.

Some people rate this as being the most important horse race in all of Asia. Certainly, it one of the worlds most prestigious and richest steeplechase events. Only thoroughbred horses over the age of four can take part here.

The Dubai World Cup, UAE

This glamorous race takes place in Dubai each March. With prize money of $10 million, it was regarded as the richest horse race in the world until the Pegasus World Cup introduced an even bigger purse.

Horses take part in a 2,000 meter race. This is just one part of the Dubai World Cup Night Event, in which the total purse to be won reaches a staggering $27 million. It is no wonder that stars from all walks of life flock to this event, as it involves as much money as the Kentucky Derby horse race best bets.

It is a Grade I flat race that takes places at the stylish, modern Meydan Racecourse, which has its own hotel with suites that offer the best viewing positions. Interestingly, the horses have to be aged four or more if they are from the Northern hemisphere, but those from the Southern hemisphere can be three or more.

The Saudi Cup, Saudi Arabia

This is a brand new race that is already classed as the richest event in the horse racing calendar. The inaugural event is scheduled for February 29, 2020 at the King Abdulaziz Racetrack in Riyadh.

A stunning prize pool of $20 million puts it ahead of its closest rivals in terms of prize money. The Saudi Cup is sandwiched between the Pegasus World Cup and the Dubai World Cup, meaning that the best horses on the planet can take part in all three lucrative races in a short period of time.

Perhaps surprisingly, entrance ticket prices start at just $25. The first horse past the post will earn $10 million, with cash prizes going all the way down to tenth place.
