Nick Columb of the Hong Kong Jockey Club pictured with his sale catalogue at the Tattersalls Bloodstock Auction in NewmarketHong Kong is renowned for its packed racecourses and massive betting turnover but now the Hong Kong Jockey Club is becoming a force to be reckoned with at the major global international yearling sales. Whilst they are not trying to win a bidding war with the Sheikhs from Dubai or Qatar, they are improving the quality as part of the HKJC’s strategy of looking outwards, their senior international racing consultant Nick Columb told AFP. “I was headhunted three years ago by Winfried Engelbrecht-Bresges (the HKJC CEO),” said the 70-year-old Romania-born Australian, who gave AFP his first interview since he took up the post at the Tattersalls yearling sales in Newmarket.
