The first race day of 2008 sees just 11 races at Seoul Race Park. The first is under orders at 11:00am and the last at 5:30pm. To celebrate the New Year, Race 6 is a big handicap worth 52Million won to the winner, an unusual prize fund for a Saturday race. It’s worth warning that as there are only 11 races, there are three hour-long gaps in the card instead of the usual two, with Jeju races being shown at 12:20pm, 1:20pm and 2:20pm. The big race is off at 2:50pm. However, after last weekend’s unbearably cold conditions, temperatures are expected to get the right side of zero and the sun should be out, which should make for a good day.
