Joe Fujii might have won the Grand Prix last week but that doesn’t stop him being suspended this week

This weekend always has something of an after the Lord Mayor’s Show feel of things. While Gamdonguibada’s last gasp victory in the Grand Prix Stakes at Seoul last Sunday was the end of season showpiece, Korean racing never really stops and all three of Seoul, Busan and Jeju host cards this weekend.

While the feature races are on Sunday, unbeaten two-year old Watts Village (Forestry) is in action at Seoul on Saturday, looking to finish his juvenile year with his fifth straight win. The TJK Trophy winner should have too much for his rivals over 1900 metres, however, Sunday’s class 1 handicaps at both Seoul and Busan look competitive.

Here’s what’s happening when and where:

Friday December 14

Busan Race Park: 11 races from 11:50 to 18:00
Jeju Race Park: 9 races from 13:30 to 17:30

Saturday December 15

Seoul Race Park: 12 races from 11:00 to 17:40
Jeju Race Park: 9 races from 12:20 to 17:10

Sunday December 16
