Korean trainer set for Breeders’ Cup

“So, who is Myung Kwon Cho?” asked the racing blog Foolish Pleasure on Sunday after the 2 year old colt Street Hero won the G1 Norfolk Stakes at Santa Anita for the little known owner/trainer. It turns out that Cho is a 66 year old Korean who emigrated to the United States in 1978. He set up a clothing business and when it became successful started to own – and later train – racehorses. Read the Foolish Pleasure article here. Street Hero will go on to the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile. Video of Sunday’s race can be seen at
