Hong Kong Combines Horseracing and Interactive Entertainment Technology

Horseracing and interactive entertainment technology will excite race-goers at Happy Valley Racecourse on Thursday, 20 April, the first of three consecutive Digital Night parties at Hong Kong’s iconic city track.

At the three-week event which ends on 3 May, a 65″ Samsung SUHD Quantum Dot TV is up for grabs. The Korea Racing Authority Trophy will be featured on Wednesday, 26 April.

Beer Garden and other racecourse hotspots will present an array of fun interactive games, blending high technology with exciting sport and the unique buzz of a night at the Valley (Photos 1, 2).

  • Celebrate Like a Star Jockey: Prebble’s “flying fist”, the Moreira roar or the Callan “stand-up salute” – gamers strike victory poses just like their favourite jockeys.  Their video clips are to be judged, with the top scorer receiving a 65″ Samsung SUHD Quantum Dot TV
  • Virtual Reality Riding Game: fans can experience the thrill of race riding. This is a rare chance to test jockey skills perched atop a riding machine while watching images from the VR Gear, for the chance to win a Samsung VR Gear
  • Finger Run: join the simulated racing game with friends and enjoy loads of fun.
  • 360 video with Derek Leung via VR Gear: the leading local jockey takes fans on a behind-the-scenes racing facilities tour

 

In between the racing excitement, Kat Coetzee (Photo 3), daughter of retired rider-turned-mentor Felix Coetzee, and her band will bring rock-and-funk vibes to the Beer Garden.
