RAIN will not dampen the ardour of a crowd seeking Triple Trio riches and facing three months without racing, on the final day of the season at Sha Tin today. The Jockey Club were last night asking patrons for today's nine-event card to get to the track early and well in advance of the 1.15 post time for the first event, ironically Race Two. The official first race was last night's Epsom Derby. The Jockey Club expect at least 60,000 on course with Happy Valley catering for a further 16,000 as the curtain descends on another hectic Hong Kong season. A new betting record will be set as the existing one was already bettered before Wednesday's midweek betting bonanza. A total of $70 billion has already been wagered, $4 billion more than last season. Betting offices stayed open late again last night to cater for the demand of Triple Trio punters who get their final chance of undreamed of wealth until next September. The record pool on Wednesday of $120 million will also be bettered as the Jockey Club will not carry forward the pool to next season.
