The Hong Kong Vase (Group 1 - 2400m)
The fourth richest 2400m race in the world at HK$14 million (approx.
$1.8 million US), the Hong Kong Vase is worth more than the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes. Europeans have won the last two renewals
of the Vase with Borgia (1999) and Daliapour (2000).

The Hong Kong Mile (Group 1 - 1600m)
The Mile is the richest international mile race in the world worth HK$14
million (approx. $1.8 million US), Docksider
triumphed in 1999 and last year the race staged one of the most gripping
finishes ever witnessed at Sha Tin when Sunline narrowly prevailed over
the Hong Kong's champion Fairy King Prawn.

The Hong Kong Cup (Group 1 - 2000m)
The Hong Kong Cup is the richest race on turf in the world over 2000m at
HK$18 million (approx. $2.3 million US).
It is also the final leg of the Emirates World Series and last year
Fantastic Light won it to claim the World Champion title outright. Jim And
Tonic won the Cup in 1999.
The Hong Kong Cup is the best and most fascinating event of all, as befits its standing on the international racing circuit. The Cup features Silvano and Jim And Tonic, both of whom are equally rated on a mark of 123. However, the Japanese champion Agnes Digital, Tobougg representing Godolphin, and Ballydoyle's Bach are certain to provide these champions with the stiffest of tasks.
