Guideline for Overseas Owner

Macau Jockey Club was formerly the Macau Trotting Club. In 1989, the Trotting Club changed ownership and was transformed into the present Macau Jockey Club for flat-racing. The first race was held on 10 September 1989. In 1991, the Macau Jockey Club was acquired by a consortium led by Dr Stanley Ho. The Board of Directors appoints a Chief Executive to handle the daily administration and management of the Club while the Management Committee composed of members of the Board of Directors is responsible for major policy-making.
The Macau Jockey Club is one of the largest private employers of Macau with around 1,000 employees (of which about 500 are stable hands) and over 600 part-timers.

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.

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
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). Facilities also enable horses to swim over a 120-metre or a 60-metre trip.
