The Queen Elizabeth II Cup, which is hosted by the Sha Tin Racecourse in the New Territories, Hong Kong, features a lucrative prize pool of HK$20 million, which works out to about $2.55 million USD.

The race was established by the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club in 1975 and is run every April. The race, which is sponsored by Audemars Piguet, is run on a 2 kilometre turf course.

This is an international Group One Thoroughbred race that is open to horses from all over the world, including Hong Kong, France and other places.

A couple of horses have won this race more than once, including Eishin Preston (2002, 2003) and Viva Pataca.

Pakistan Star, ridden by William Buick and trained by Tony Cruz, won last year's event and will be looking to repeat. Pakistan Star turned in one of the quickest times of the modern era, as he managed to finish the course of just 2.00.21, which was nearly five seconds faster than the winner in 2017, Neorealism.
