HKJC Racing Books

HKJC Racing Books - Andrew Li's Collection in Hong Kong Jockey Club

        The Andrew Li Collection consists essentially of books on flat horseracing. There are no books on fiction and no record books such as race records and sales catalogues.

        A substantial part of the collection consists of biographies: of horses, jockeys, trainers, owners and breeders and other racing personalities. There are also books on the great races such as the English Derby, the Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe and the Melbourne Cup. There are many inspiring stories told in these books: of hopes and dreams, of failure and success. In racing, as in life, one has to dream and dare. Success requires hard work, patience, courage and determination.
