Racing in Hong Kong continued during the pandemic lockdown but attendance at meetings was heavily restricted to essential people only.

As such, the restrictions greatly reduced the average attendance at meetings during the season. At both Sha Tin and Happy Valley average attendances fell by more than 60% over last season.

The Jockey Club has been given permission to allow some attendance at meetings in September and October 2020 under certain conditions.
