Seoul Jockey’s Championship

With Cho Kyoung Ho and Park Tae Jong both absent, Moon Se Young was the only one of the top three jockeys in action at Seoul Race Park over the weekend, managing three wins to go eight clear of Cho. Moon was, unsurprisingly voted “MVP” for the first quarter and is on course to break Park’s 2000 record of 120 winners in a calendar year. Ikuyasu Kurakane landed three over the weekend to move into fourth place on 16 winners and there were victories for both of the female riders, Lee Ae Li and Lee Shin Young who moved onto 2 and 5 winners respectively. Lee Ae Li’s weekend finished early, however, injuring a finger during race 2 on Sunday.

1. Moon Se Young 48

2. Cho Kyoung Ho 40

3. Park Tae Jong 20

4. Ikuyasu Kurakane 16
