D Day Lands Victory Again

Siinui Norae springs surprise / National Leader wins

Siinui Norae pulled off a surprise win in the day’s biggest race but it was three-year old filly D Day who produced the performance of the day on a sunny spring afternoon at Seoul Race Park.

Stepping up to class 2 company for the first time after a victory one division below earlier this month, D Day comfortably saw off eleven rivals over nine furlongs with jockey Won Jung Il riding hands and heels and easing up from the furlong pole.

D Day [Belong To Me – Please Don’t Look (Rahy)] qualifies as Korean bred as her dam was inported from Australia while pregnant, but is ineligible for the Classics.

At 55/1, Siinui Norae was the unlikely winner of the feature race of the afternoon. The five-year old held off late challenged from favourite Bungjeongmalli and New Rider to win by three quarters of a length.

In other races, US bred National Leader recorded the fourth win of his career. For jockey Choi Bum Hyun, it was his fourth win of the afternoon.
