Donnie Yen was announced as the ambassador for the BMW Hong Kong Derby 2014.
Arriving in a BMW, he said that he wanted to own a horse because many of his friends had one, reports HK Top Ten.
He said, "This year has been very meaningful, it is the Year of the Horse and I played Sun Wukong.
"Wukong in the Heavenly Palace took care of horses."
Donnie once said that he wanted to name his horse 'Love Cissy', and he would ask his wife Cissy Wang before naming the horse.
He said, "I respect my wife, she doesn't want the horse to have her name."
Yen Chi Tan said that Cissy was lucky with gambling, as she won more money at the track than him.
"I feel my wife's eyes are very sharp, otherwise why would she marry me?"
