Wednesday means horse racing in Happy Valley, where the floodlit racecourse, hemmed in by towering apartment buildings and steep hills, attracts hardcore Chinese gamblers (it's the only legal form of gambling in Hong Kong) and boozing expats. Order a drink from the beer marquee and stand by the home straight as the horses gallop in, or admire the views from the grandstand.
