Jigeum I Sungan Beaten as Full Moon Party Wins Turkey Jockey Club Trophy

Jigeum I Sungan was a shock 4th as 15/1 Full Moon Party won the Turkey Jockey Club Trophy for trainer Lee Shin Young at Seoul Race Park this afternoon.

Last year’s Korean Derby winner Jigeum I Sungan (Ingrandire) entered the race having won his last 6 consecutive starts and was sent off as the overwhelming odds-on favourite. However, Full Moon Party (Vicar) led from start to finish while Jiegum I Sungan – perhaps feeling the heat and humidity while conceding 6 kilos to his rivals, never managed to get into his stride.

Full Moon Party, a 4-year old filly, has now won 7 of her 16 career starts.
