The top 10 words from Hong Kong

words by STEPHEN HOWELL IN HONG KONG

Alphabetically, my key words on what the Hong Kong Jockey Club calls the 'greatest show on turf', the Longines Hong Kong International Races and their lead-in events -

ADMINISTRATION: Hong Kong has a huge, huge advantage in that the Hong Kong Jockey Club has a monopoly on what, really, is the only first-class sport in town, and there is an element of self back-slapping. BUT there's no doubt that CEO Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges runs an organisation that, each December, shows the rest of the racing world how it's done. No resting on laurels here.
