SHANGHAI -- April 18, 2012

Tassle, the first high end racehorse in England to be owned by Mainland
Chinese owners races today Thursday, 19th April at Newmarket racecourse,
England.

Tassel is owned by The Shanghai Race Club, an organization established by the
British settlers in Shanghai in 1800′s. The club soared to fame in 1930′s
golden era of Shanghai, closed down in the 1940′s as the country restructured
and was then reformed in 2008.

“There is great interest in British horse racing in Mainland China” says Byron
Constable, Chairman of the Club, “The speed and excitement of the race
combined with the prestige of being an owner is a powerful draw.”

The Shanghai Race Club has partnered with the distinguishedHighclere
racingin England for the management of the racehorses. Regular reporting on
the Club’s racehorses is managed by the Highclere team in England using
uploaded video and text messages. All reporting is translated into Mandarin
Chinese by the Club and distributed online to the members. The Club even has
its own channel on the website for the members to view all the races featuring
the Club’s racehorses.

“Technology makes this possible” explains Juliet Zhu, Club Manager “and one of
the advantages of racing in England is the time difference. Tonight the Club
members will gather after work at The Shanghai Tang cafe in downtown Shanghai
to watch our horse, Tassel, race for the first time. We have almost 100
members across the country who have dropped us a note to let us know they will
be watching the race on their smart phones during dinner. It really is such an
exciting era.”
