G20 Finance Ministers are meeting in Busan this weekend. Some could hardly do worse than to pop down to the track where there are ten races on Friday followed up by six more on Sunday which culminates in young upstarts Captain Sir and Useung Geotap taking on Busan stalwart Crafty Louis in the feature.
Up in the capital it’s getting hot. Not too hot but pleasantly summery. Put simply, it’s perfect punting weather. This should make up for a less than inspiring feature race on Saturday when Natural Nine – a horse who hasn’t won for going on two years – carries top weight among a small field of just seven
Sunday is a little more promising with Bulpae Gisang, Seoul Teukgeup, Torpedo Mast, Free Hugs, Noubeau Riche and a rare British-bred runner in Key To Success, do battle over ten furlongs.
