The Hong Kong Jockey Club (HKJC) has named Michael T H Lee as its new chairman. He will replace Philip N L Chen who stepped down from the board of stewards at the conclusion of the annual general meeting after having served 16 years as a club steward, the past two as chairman.

Lee has previously served as director of Oxer Holdings Limited and is currently a non-executive director of Hysan Development Company Limited, an Independent non-executive director of Chen Hsong Holdings Limited and a steward of The Hong Kong Jockey Club. Eric Li Ka Cheung has been appointed as Deputy Chairman.

“I am truly honoured to take up the leadership of The Hong Kong Jockey Club. With our world-class racing attracting even more fans across the globe and the very bright prospects ahead for the equine industry in the Greater Bay Area, this is a very exciting time for the Club,” Lee said.

“Equally, the Club remains strongly committed to its purpose – the Betterment of our Society. With the pandemic still posing a major challenge, we will work even harder to help those in need,” Lee added.
