Jockey Club Mile
A major lead-up for the G1 LONGINES Hong Kong Mile in December, the Jockey Club Mile was the last of the three Jockey Club Races established by the Club. It was first run as a HKG2 and contested as the International Mile Trial in 2003. The race opened to overseas competition in 2009 before its upgrade to international G2 status and raced under current name in 2010.
Lucky Owners (2003), Good Ba Ba (2007), Able Friend (2014), Beauty Only (2016) and Beauty Generation (2018) are the only five top milers to have secured the Jockey Club Mile and LONGINES Hong Kong Mile in the same season. The race’s current prize money has increased to HK$4.5 million in 2020.
