Distance races in Hong Kong are rare as many horses racing here are simply not bred to be stayers, but, instead, are, usually, sprinters and milers.

On Sunday at Shatin is a distance race over 2200 metres and which is where the Racing Touch app can help you figure out which runners- like Khaya and Wayfoong Express- are proven stayers and trained specifically to tackle this race.

Racing Touch can also show you those that have never run over this distance, but, with an apprentice jockey’s weight allowance or being ridden by a good lightweight jockey like Karis Teetan or Joao Moreira are more than capable of winning these distance races.

When you want to go that extra distance and look at the chances of every horse in each race, all the different applications of Racing Touch can really put you in the driver’s- and rider’s seat.
