Horse racing in Ho Chi Minh City ; Beijing, a city in the making (31 Dec 2002)


Looks at horseracing in Ho Chi Minh City. The once bourgeois luxury is popular again in Vietnam. Due to lack of funding, racetracks double as soccer fields and only farm-raised horses are raced. Officially, betting is banned but horseracing lotteries are allowed. Charges of doping and racketeering plagued these races which pay well for the club, jockeys and owners. Looks at a land developer's project in Beijing which features award-winning designs by Asian architects. Antonio Ochoa (Architect) considers Beijing as a city without style and direction and suggests that more attention should be given to architecture. Pan Shiyi (Developer) believes Beijing is becoming cosmopolitan and should develop better designed buildings to fit the status.
