Some leave it happy some not...
It is the Hongkong horse racing.

Happy Valley (快活谷; more popular form: 跑馬地, lit. horse racing ground) is a mostly residential suburb of Hong Kong, located in the north of Hong Kong Island. It is one of the early communities of Hong Kong. Administratively, it is part of Wan Chai District.

The valley is also known indigenously as Wong Nai Chung (黃泥涌, lit. yellow mud stream), named after the stream of the same name. The two names are used interchangeably. For indicating the landscape, Wong Nai Chung Kuk (黃泥涌谷) or Wong Nai Chung Valley is used occasionally.

Happy Valley Racecourse, one of the two race tracks of the Hong Kong Jockey Club is located in Happy Valley.

The Hong Kong Racing Museum, Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital, and a number of cemeteries (including Hong Kong Cemetery) are also located in Happy Valley.
