Busan Review

Widaehan Bonneung lands feature as Uchida trebles again
Toshio Uchida further cemented his position as top jockey at Busan Race Park this afternoon with another three wins. The Japanese took the feature handicap on top weight and favourite Widaehan Bonneung (3.2), hitting the front as they turned for home and going on for a two length win from second favourite Choego Jangseong (4.3). It was a return to form for the six year old Widaehan Bonneung who, apart from a win in February, had disappointed this year.

Earlier, Uchida had taken the honours on Haetsalgachi (4.2) in race 2 and Peace Mind (4,2) in race 8. Race 6 was a competitive KRW 31Million category 2 race for foreign bred runners with victory taken by Saeroun Bulpae (1.9), the three year old filly running on for an impressive five length win over Namsanui Jeonggi (6.2) with second favourite King Kephalos (2.7) a further five lengths back in third.

For Saeroun Bulpae, it was a fourth win from ten races and seven races since she’s been out of the placings. Racing returns to Busan on Sunday with a six race card starting at 12:40.
