Jockey’s Championship / New jockeys update

Moon Se Young recorded four wins over the weekend to move onto 56 winners for the year so far. Moon won race 1 and 10 on both Saturday and Sunday. Cho Kyoung Ho scored one winner on Saturday before picking up an injury in race 4 on Sunday ruling him out of his remaining rides. The Japanese contingent was in good form on Sunday with Ikuyasu Kurakane winning two, including on Shaving Points, and Nozomu Tomizawa winning one.

Japanese jockey Toshio Uchida has been added to the roster at Busan Race Park.  The 47 year old is set to make his debut as early as next week.  Meanwhile at Seoul, American Kevin Radke, who competed in last November’s international jockey’s challenge is scheduled to join full-time having been granted a licence last month. He is yet to appear on Seoul’s official list, however.  The current foreign duo at Seoul, Ikuyasu and Nozomu will finish their initial year at the end of June and July respectively.  There will also be a new intake of graduates from the KRA’s jockey school.  We’ll have a full list of the newcomers, both Korean and overseas over the next week or so.

1. Moon Se Young 56
2. Cho Kyoung Ho 49
3. Park Tae Jong 25
4. Ikuyasu Kurakane 20
5. Shim Seung Tae 19
