China Horse Club

The China Horse Club began racing in 2013 but has swiftly grown into one of the best known operators in the world. Founded by Malaysian self-made billionaire Teo Ah Khing, the club aims to be Asia’s “premier lifestyle, business and thoroughbred racing club” and claims to have offered its members “exclusive investment opportunities”. It has been reported that there are around 300 members of the club each paying around $1 million for the privilege. They have enjoyed notable success on the racecourse, most notably through Triple Crown winner Justify and brilliant filly Abel Tasman, who was sold this week for $5m at Keeneland. The club is also trying to develop horseracing in China and has hosted a number of race meetings there. It has also invested $2.6 billion into a new racecourse in St Lucia, which is due to start racing this year. RP
