Starting on Saturday 28 January with Met Day at Kenilworth in South Africa and ending on Melbourne Cup Day on 7 November in Australia, one World Pool Moment of the Day will be selected at each World Pool meeting to win a prize of HK$40,000 (or equivalent), with a total of over HK$1 million in prizes over the course of the 2023 World Pool season.
Each winning groom from the season’s 25 World Pool days will also enter the chance to be named World Pool Moment of the Year and win a VIP trip for four to Hong Kong for either the 2024 Hong Kong Derby or 2024 FWD Champions Day.
The 25 individual World Pool Moment of the Day winners will be narrowed down to a final four by a panel of global racing experts, before being voted on by the public for World Pool Moment of the Year, which will be revealed at the Hong Kong International Races at Sha Tin in December.
