Ttukseom Cup winner Namchonuijijon returns to the track for the first time since his April triumph, lining up in Saturday’s feature race at Seoul Race Park. Racing at 2000 metres for only the second time – the first being when running third to J.S. Hold in last year’s Minister’s Cup – Namchonuijijon will face ten competitors including Best Condition and 2007 Oaks winner Baekpa. The KRW 42Million handicap is race 11 and is off at 17:20. The first of twelve races comes under orders at 11:20.

There are no category one races at Seoul on Sunday but there is an eleven race card beginning at 11:20. The main event on Sunday is at Busan Race Park where the KNN Cup is the highlight of six races. The first is at 12:40 with the Cup off at 15:35. As usual there’s pony racing at Jeju Race Park with ten races on both Saturday and Sunday, with the first at 12:20.
