Racing Preview – Sunday January 6

Warning: Unless you get up early, you won’t see much racing
Another 11 races start at 11:ooam Sunday but a day at the races can hardly be recommended given the race schedule tomorrow. All three tracks – Seoul, Jeju and Busan –  are running cards and this means that at Seoul there is 55 minutes between races during the peak afternoon time. So unless you enjoy watching a lot of TV racing then stay home tomorrow.  For those who do have the patience to venture out, the best advice is to get there for the first at 11:00am and then leave after Race 5.  The most valuable race of the day is not until 5:10pm and is a handicap over 2000 metres.  Overall though, the card looks rather thin.

Schedules like this are a prime example of why a day at the races in Korea doesn’t have mass appeal.  From 11:50 to16:40 there is a break of an hour between every race,  no wonder it’s only hard-bitten gamblers who attend.
