Australian Chinese Jockey Club “ACJC” is formed as a prestigious membership club, operating as a not-for-profit organisation.
Horse racing, more specifically horse ownership in Asia is expensive and deemed by the general public only for the elite, yet most people in the Asian community love the sport of horse racing.
With the growing number of affluent Asians living in Australia and the recent success of a number of horses owned by Chinese interests, we believe there is a need to tap into the market. We like to start engaging the Asian community in the sport of horse racing by introducing them to all facets of horse racing, They can be in breeding, ownership, club membership and of course, the finer art of betting through quality entertainment for everyone.
In 2016, Douglas You established Australian Chinese Jockey Club Sydney to engage the Asian community in a wide range of horse racing activities on a social basis at the onset. This is not a horse-syndication.
