The Hong Kong Polytechnic University has a new and stunning home for its Jockey Club Design Institute for Social Innovation. Aptly named the Jockey Club Innovation Tower, the recently-opened building accommodates more than 1,800 students and staff with areas that include studios, labs and workshops, exhibition areas, classrooms, and more. The 15-storey, 15,000 square meter tower was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, who created a series of fluid spaces that are meant to promote dialogue between the different areas of study within the school.

Hong Kong Jockey Club, Beijing.

Yes, there is a growing 1% in China. Second only to US, there are now more than 100 billionaires in China. A bunch of them like to hangout at this place, the Beijing clubhouse for the Hong Kong Jockey Club, a place they can talk about gambling on horses. But far more importantly, it is a place to see and be seen.

so I ended up at the Hong Kong 2015 Gold Cup. I know pretty much nothing about horse racing but THEN I SAW THIS HORSE

I HAVE NO MONEY BUT THIS IS FATE. I BET IT ALL ON YOU COLOSSUS

*sweats nervously, prays to Bertolt’s pointy fringe* The odds are against you but I believe in you, precious baby horsey! Look at em trot trottrot

UPDATE: Colossus wouldn’t go into the starting gate and didn’t race. That’s my Bertl baby! Destroy humanity! Take no shit! My mom said I have the worst luck ever (…true) but idc. Run free, horsey! >: )

P.S.: A vet said Colossus’ leg was hurt! I still know nothing about you please be ok! Recover and retire home to fields of gold with juicy carrots and a Armored stallion to frolic with happily ever after!

(Renaissance Art won btw. With a name like that…hell ye)

The Hong Kong Jockey Club

7th June, 2013

The Hong Kong Jockey club is a betting branch that are located throughout Hong Kong and are specifically for betting on horse racing. As we visited one of the branches during a summer month it was quiet. This was because during the summer months it is too hot and the horses and jockey’s are given a break.

Not all betting revolves around horse racing. Other bets are more typical with sports and surprisingly include the Australian soccer league. They also sell lottery tickets using the system derived from ‘Tattersall’s’ in Australia.

It is extremely popular amongst locals and a percentage of what the agency makes is used in financing community development. Due to the adult content it isn’t publicly promoted and tourists may not be aware of it.

My to do list today: go visit my great grandmother’s grave and then go place an accumulator bet at the Jockey Club on BVB v. FCB and DC United v. Portland Timbers. Half tempted to throw in an additional bet on the Asian Champions League Round of 16 second leg match, Guangzhou Evergrande v. Central Coast Mariners.

(I should clarify that I’m betting on FCB & Timbers wins and leaning towards a draw for Evergrande v. Mariners)
