Going with the theme of the Year of the Horse, the Swiss Association of Hong Kong together with the Swiss Chamber of Commerce in Guangzhou and the Swiss Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong invited for another edition of the Night at the Races at the legendary Hong Kong Jockey Club.

The Horse Race is since long an established event for the Swiss people in Hong Kong making it the second biggest event of the year after the Swiss National Day celebration.

'Some people lost and some people won money but mostly it was just a fun night with friends' found Kesang Spirgi who was involved in the organisation of the event.

Marco Polo Fine Wines sponsored carefully selected Italian wines made from indigenous grapes (vermentino for white and cannonau for red) which paired very well with the food provided by the Jockey Club.

Tobias Heller the President of the Swiss Association thanked the guests for their coming and concluded: 'It was another great event and very most likely we will do it again next year!...'
