Hong Kong Jockey Club cross border commingling arrangements

30 October 2015


Thomson Geer’s Gaming & Leisure team has acted for The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) in its cross border commingling arrangements with the Tabcorp Group in respect of its NSW tote operations.  HKJC is one of the world class leaders in horse racing, sporting and betting entertainment, and Hong Kong’s premier charity and community benefactor.   The commingling, which commenced in October 2015, enables NSW Tabcorp customers access to the HKJC tote betting pools on Hong Kong races. This is the first time NSW Tabcorp customers have been able to commingle into an international pool.  Hong Kong holds the world’s biggest wagering pools and Hong Kong racing is regarded globally for its high quality.
