Fegentri goes Far-East – visit to China
Fegentri was invited by The Wuhan Jockey Club in China and General Secretary Susanna Santesson visited the Orient Lucky City and Orient Lucky Horse Project for the first time.
In 2008 Wuhan Race course was appointed by the Government as the official trial racecourse of China and the huge new grandstand of Wuhan Orient Lucky City International Racecourse is built as a future project. That means that they are in the process to build a platform for racing lotteries.
Jackie Wu is the man behind the scene, born in a little town nearby Shanghai and brought up in Hongkong. He returned to Wuhan to start his business in real estates. He invested 1.4 billion Euro to built the grandstand, stables, administration buildings and accommodation on the racecourse. He bought more than 500 local bred horses and a few thoroughbred horses. About 25 minutes drive from Wuhan International Airport or 30 minutes drive from the city of Wuhan he built a training centre for over 500 horses and will expand it by another 500 boxes. Jacky Wu employs a staff of 400 people from China and in addition a few professionals from overseas.
Jacky Wu, President of the Wuhan Jockey Club and owner of Orient Lucky City International Racecourse wants to join Fegentri and take part in the international series of Fegentri World Championship. He would like to offer races counting towards the World Championship for gentlemen and lady riders in the next year. This is certainly a great future opportunity for Fegentri riders.
The first big event is planned end of October on the occasion of the International Wuhan Racing Festival where Officials of Government and Industry are traditionally attending the meeting. Fegentri will be invited for the first international amateur race in China.
We are looking forward to go Far-East.
