Fancy dress king Philip Booth gallops in the Boxing Day Race around Mount Cameron. Yesterday was the first time Booth didn't have a unique costume, as Anthony Somerset also came as a horse and jockey. Mr Booth, however, won the equestrian matchup, finishing 70th in 20 minutes, 21 seconds, to Mr Somerset's 31:14, good for 264th. Matthew Jones, dressed as a runner, won the men's race in 14:50, a minute clear of Wong Tin-yau. Pauline Cheung won the women's race in 18:12, while veteran runner Gillian Castka - dressed as the master of the hounds in a scarlet jacket, whip and jodhpurs - was second in 18:27. The Hong Kong Ladies Road Runners Club organised the 4km race.
