Welcome to the Australian Chinese community’s most exclusive club
The Aquis Chinese Jockey Club is your gateway to participating in the racing industry as an owner, breeder OR raceday attendee
The Aquis Chinese Jockey Club was established in 2018 by Aquis Farm as a way for horse owners, racers, breeders and enthusiasts within Australia’s Asian community to come together and share their passion as one group.
Asia’s affluent horse racing and ownership scene has been considered to be unapproachable for many who do not have the resources that would allow them to associate with the sport’s ‘elite’. But the Aquis Chinese Jockey Club Inc asks, just because horse racing is the sport of kings, why should only the kings have all the fun?
The Aquis Chinese Jockey Club Inc is open to anyone part of Australia’s Asian community with a deep passion for the world’s most majestic creatures and their place in Australia’s sporting industry. Members of the Aquis Chinese Jockey Club belong to a new breed of horse racing elite, with exclusive access to races, facilities, knowledge and resources. The club also has a vast network of professionals and like-minded enthusiasts who are eager to expand the Aquis Chinese Jockey Club Inc family, by building and nurturing strong relationships with new members.

Our Sponsor – Aquis
Originally established in Canungra, Queensland in 2015, Aquis Farm is the amalgamation of the Wadham Park Racing Facility and three surrounding large acre properties. With a total investment on land and facilities exceeding AUD$30 million, the farm has become one of Australia’s finest integrated racing and breeding operation.
Aquis Farm expanded their operation in 2017, taking over the management of a famous property in the heart of the nation’s horse capital – the historic Emirates Park property in Murrurundi, New South Wales. Since then Aquis Farm has continued to uphold the property’s proud tradition, honouring previous generations by planning new success for the future. In 2019, Aquis acquired a new property at Seymour in Victoria.
Aquis Farm has invested in the areas where capital was needed to ensure success at the highest level. The growth of Aquis Farm has been significant in the stallion market, expanding our roster from four stallions in 2016, to now standing 13 this season.
Aquis Farm has spent over AUD$50 million acquiring bloodstock at public auctions and privately since the farms inception into Australia in 2015. With an ever-increasing broodmare band and nearly 200 horses in training, the future is bright for Aquis Farm in Australasia.
