Horses and Stables Facilities

There are around 400 horses in training. The horses come from Australia, New Zealand, England, Ireland, France, United States and Japan. Horses are purchased by Members, so Horse Owners must become Members first and they are required to purchase horses according to a private purchase scheme.

There are 14 air-conditioned stable blocks providing 1,183 stalls for horses in training. The quarantine stable which has been fully renovated and upgraded to meet international standards has a capacity of 60 horses. There is also an air-conditioned spelling stable that has a capacity of 28 horses. There are separate stables for retired horses and for the Riding School. All stable personnel, except Trainers, are on Club's payroll and all stable facilities are owned and managed by the Club. The Club provides training facilities including fodder and vet care.

The Club is concerned about the health of horses as well as the interests of Horse Owners. As such, a Spelling Station was built in November 2001 on-course to provide a fresh-up area for horses which, subject to vet surgeon’s advice, require a rest after racing over a long period or have veterinary problem. The spelling station has been very well received by Horse Owners and Trainers since its operation.

Three full time vets shoulder the responsibility of the Equine Hospital which offers full diagnostic and treatment options. Modern equipment includes a videoendoscope, digital Xray machine, ultrasound scanner and a shockwave machine. Full surgical facilities are available and the hospital also has a laboratory equipped with the latest blood analyzers. Racing samples are tested by Racing Analytical Services Ltd (RASL), Victoria, Australia, and Racing Laboratory of Korea Racing Authority (KRA).

The Equine Swimming Pool which opens daily serves not only as a training facility but also a convalescence aid for horses. The 1.2 million-litre water in the 3.5-metre deep pool is constantly disinfected and maintained at a pH value of 7.2-7.4 (alkaline), and can be brought to a temperature of 24Cº to cater for cold weather. Facilities also enable horses to swim over a 120-metre or a 60-metre trip.

In 2002 the Macau Jockey Club has established Quarantine protocols with Hong Kong, USA and European Member Countries, and Macau horses can be exported to Hong Kong on a Temporary Import Permit, good for international racing purposes or transit. In addition, Macau horses can be exported to USA, European Countries and Australia on a Temporary or Permanent Import Permit.

At present, Macau accepts imports from European Member Countries, Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, United Arab Emirates, Japan, Malaysia (Continent) and Argentina, which make up a total of 11 countries.
