Racing Review – Saturday January 12

Eleven races again saw 11 different jockeys in the winner’s enclosure and a reasonable turn out at Seoul Race Park for what was an average Saturday card in terms of quality. There were two joint main races – the final two and it was in the first of these that we saw the day’s best contest. A 17.7 outsider, Leaders, ridden by Ikuyasu Kurukane took the race by a nose from Eunpamense (5.5) under Park, Tae Jong with the 2.2 favourite Yuel Mountain three-quarters of a length back in third.

In other races, apprentice jockey Choi, Won Jun rode his third career winner in race 9, a race notable for the fact that the favourite went off at 4.0 – exceptionally high by Korean standards – and was unplaced. Choi’s horse was second favourite at 4.5.
