REFERENCE

 

1942-1945, during the Japanese occupation period, HKJC was replaced by HKRC.
About 270 ponies and horses were recorded in 4 lists:
China Ponies
Old Australian Ponies
1942 Australian Griffins
1942 Australian Subscription Ponies

 

Number, Original Name, New Name in Chinese and English (pronunciation), Colour, Height were itemized.
Some ponies and horses were missing along the Number sequences of those 4 lists.
New names in English were just pronunciations in Cantonese without any English meanings.
Colour classifications were not as diversified as those descriptions in official racebooks before WWII.
Height was measured by ‘hand’-unit.

 

1942-1945《New & Old Horse Name List》was innovated by HKRC during the Japanese occupation period.
All the data and Content were believed to be proposed and written by Mr Shen Kut-shing (Lo Kut).
English names of ponies and horses were recorded, renamed or translated to Chinese, then approved officially and used unanimously for the first time in history.

But such a Chinese naming system might be proposed by him, then being approved and implemented by the HKJC, after WWII.
