    There has been lots of mythical stories passed down from generations to generations around the area of Happy Valley. Some claim it has good fortune ‘Fung Shui’ as a treasure cradle. Some claim it has the opposite effect as the flat land shaped as a Chinese Wok that dwellers along the course might be burnt.

    1880 Converted from a piece of swamp, the Happy Valley Racecourse in the old days was often affected by flood water due to the valley terrain.

    • RicoCell says:

      Therefore, the racecourse was equipped with flood control facilities, such as nullahs at the infield area, to reduce the threat from flood water.
