Weekend Racing Times

It’s been a very mild – albeit rather dusty – week in South Korea and the settled weather looks set to continue as racing returns this weekend.

Haze: Seoul has been hit by dust storms this week, but at least it is getting warmer

It’s well worth watching Busan on Friday for the very last race on the card as unbeaten US import Cowboy Son (Cowboy Cal) steps up to class 1 for the first time. The three-year-old colt is already his America-based sire’s biggest earner and comes into the race with 6 comfortable wins from his 6 starts.

Among Others, Cowboy Son will find himself up against Beolmaui Kkum, who drops down in distance after 2 disappointing recent outings, including fading without trace in the home straight of the Grand Prix Stakes in Seoul in December.

There are no Stakes races on the peninsulas this weekend but Seoul does play host to a pair of class 1 events on Sunday afternoon. KRA Cup Classic winner Mari Daemul – another who had a disappointing Grand Prix, is among thoe on show.

Here’s what’s happening when and where:

Friday February 28
Busan Race Park: 11 races from 11:40 to 18:00
Jeju Race Park: 9 races from 13:20 to 17:20

Saturday March 1
Seoul Race Park: 12 races from 10:50 to 18:00
Jeju Race Park: 9 races from 12:30 to 17:30

Sunday March 2
Seoul Race Park: 11 races from 10:50 to 18:00
Busan Race Park: 6 races from 12:45 to 17:00

  1. Not only Beolma, but also there are other competitiors..
    Let’s take a exemple:
    Let ‘s do some match-up;
    Cow boy’s pps:
    85.3-39.6=46.7 tsi2
    87.4-39.4=48.0 tsi3
    Donggeup’s pps
    85.8-37.0=48.8 tsi 3
    Orse’s pps:
    86.6-38.4=48.2 tsi3

    Here we can see Cow boy’s late speed very vulnerable..
    And top of that this field is his first class 1 sprinting race.
    Better not much weight on him.

  2. Saw that?.
    The figures never lie.
    His late speed a bit slow compare to the existing class 1
    competitors..
    He need to change his running style …
    As a closer…
    He ‘ll need some time to be a contender….
    If this race was a 7 1/2F he’d never got any chance to come in the money.
    Never…
