Evening racing on the peninsula drew to a close this past Sunday as Seoul, Busan and Jeju Race Parks all revert to their usual daytime hours from this coming weekend.
In 2008, there was no evening racing with high energy prices being cited as the reason. The return this year was a welcome one as on a warm summer’s night, the racetrack is the place to be.
With a mid-afternoon start and and a late finish, horses, jockeys and punters alike were able to get some respite from the hottest days of the year so far. Despite beginning in the monsoon season, seven of the eight fixtures were gloriously dry.
On the final night, Soseono landed the YTN Cup in front of 42,000 racegoers to bring the short evening season to a close.
