Busan Colt Crowned Champion Juvenile
16/1 outsider Good Time became the shock Korean Champion Juvenile of 2011 as Busan horses scored a 1,2,3 in the Breeders’ Cup at Seoul Race Park this afternoon.
Seoul filly Cheoneun was sent off favourite and it was she who took an early lead in the six and a half furlong sprint. She kept the lead until the final furlong but, just as she had in the Gwacheon Mayor’s Cup a month ago, faded badly. This time, it wasn’t just one horse who passed her but many as the closely bunched field swept by.
On the line, it was Good Time and Chae Gyu Jun who just got the better of Choi Si Dae on 33/1 Sing A. To complete the unlikely placers, 30/1 Dream Tower grabbed third.
