About the race

First run in 1846, the Ladies’ Purse is one of Hong Kong’s oldest races. In a tradition established for over a century, ladies would attend the event dressed in their finest outfits, while the jockey of the winning horse would be awarded gold sovereigns by an unmarried young lady. Nowadays, the winning owner, trainer and jockey are presented with a gold coin inside a purse as a memento in honour of this venerable tradition.
