The weekend’s racing got underway at Busan today – Joe Fujii and Darryll Holland both riding winners – and there’s plenty more to come on Saturday and Sunday.
Perhaps the most interesting entry is that of Watts Village in the very last race at Seoul on Sunday.
The US import won the Japan vs Korea Challenge at Ohi in Tokyo last November having earlier run second in the corresponding race in Seoul.
That first performance earned him a rating qualifying him to run at the Dubai Carnival, however, his entry here means that’s now off the table.
He’ll line up as favourite in a race over 7-furlongs which also sees a number of also-rans from last months Grand Prix Stakes make a big drop back in distance to try their luck.
Here’s what’s happening when and where.

Seoul Race Park: 12 races from 11:00 to 18:00
Jeju Race Park: 9 races from 12:30 to 17:30
Sunday January 19
