Seoul Jockey’s Championship – Moon hits fifty

Moon Se Young’s victory on Sichuseon in the Netizen’s Day race yesterday afternoon was his fiftieth of the season, however, Cho Kyoung Ho managed to narrow the gap slightly to six after managing a double on both days. Park Tae Jong marked his return from a two week ban with three winners on Sunday and Ikuyasu Kurakane continued his good run of form with three wins over the weekend. Shim Seung Tae is in fifth place on 16 and Woo Chang Gu, the highest placed retained jockey in the list with 13. Jockeys retained by trainers are only allowed a limited number of rides each week so freelancers – of which there are 18 at Seoul – dominate the leaderboard:

1. Moon Se Young 50

2. Cho Kyoung Ho 44

3. Park Tae Jong 23

4. Ikuyasu Kurakane 18
