Sit in at Busan

Another overseas jockey rides into Busan this weekend as Hong Kong’s Vincent Sit takes up a four month licence. He’ll make his debut on Friday.

Sit (Shun Keung Sit) isn’t one of Hong Kong’s most prolific jockeys – he has 103 career wins from 2385 rides. His best season was in 2000-2001. In the 2008-2009 season he has three wins.

He will join what’s becoming a vibrant overseas jockey community at Busan. Eiki Nishimura and Martin Wepner have been thriving recently with Wepner currently the in-form jockey at the track. Stephan Swanepoel also recently transferred down from Seoul and has already landed his first winner – something he was unable to do in four months in the capital.

Back up north, Nozomu Tomizawa continues to valiantly battle on against the odds at Seoul where he was recently joined by fellow Japanese rider Toshiyuki Katoh .

  1. Vincent will doing fine provided that he has enough support. If they only give him walking dogs to ride, then even Frankie Dettori can do nothing about it.

  2. Well that’s the key – Eiki and Wepner plugged away and got their reward eventually. Up at Seoul there’s nothing they could have done but Busan is a more forward looking track and more welcoming to foreigners. Hopefully he’ll do ok.
