World Pool is an extension of the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s (HKJC) commingling business, where the HKJC accepts bets from overseas partners to expand its already large pari-mutuel pools for local Hong Kong racing.
World Pool is for non-Hong Kong races that the Hong Kong Jockey Club simulcast and wager on locally from overseas.
HKJC will be the host. However, not all bet-types will be available for World Pool. It will be dependent on the agreement between HKJC and wagering partners. The IP owner will continue to host any non-World Pool bet-types in their local jurisdiction.
Sam Nati, Head of Commingling, Hong Kong Jockey Club, explained more about the World Pool ahead of Dubai Super Saturday.
