Areumdaun Jilju, Namdo Jijon take easy wins but Golding beaten
Top domestic four year old Areumdaun Jilju strolled to an easy win in the first co-feature at Busan Race Park yesterday afternoon. The 1.1 favourite, under Toshio Uchida, showed at the front of the field through the back straight of the 2000 metre handicap, going away from the field as they turned for home and taking a four length win at the line from Sinhwaui Juingong and Sanbang Jeil. Areumdaun Jilju goes on to nine wins from fourteen starts.

The second co-feature was won by the Japanese bred Dongbang Geona (16.7), the gelding recording his seventh career win in a tight finish from Sonbaljein and favourite Hwanggeumbit Taeya. Angle Slam finished fourth with Golding back in sixth.

Earlier Namdo Jijon (1.3), third in the Derby, took his second straight win with a comfortable category 2 handicap victory by four lengths over Katrina and Neveah, the latter ridden by Nozomu Tomizawa, in Busan for Sunday’s Oaks. Toshio Uchida was once again jockey of he day with three wins, Kim Eu Su took a big race double on Namdo Jijon and Dongbang Geona, while Danny Craven was also in the winner’s enclosure with victory on Yeoreumbi (4.8 ) in race 2.
