    Happy Valley Racecourse???

    Hi all, does anyone know anything about horse racing at the Happy Valley Racecourse? I was thinking it would be fun to take my kids, who both love horses. We wouldn't go for gambling, just to watch the races. Where can I find a schedule of the races? How much does it cost to go? etc.

    Thanks.
    All the best,
    Katie

    I don't think kids are allowed at the races. You need to be 18.

    We went there on a weekday for Yum Cha then after that went for a walk around the track. As long as it's not race day, it's fine. We didn't see horses but saw the stable masters and big red tractors, which my son adored.

    ctrbabe1, if your kids love horses, and if you are a member of the jockey club, you can take them to Jockey Club Beas River, where they can see the horses and learn to ride them (if they are old enough). Took our niece there last year, she was 3 and loved riding the pony :)
