It’s a New Year and a new racing season gets underway in Korea today. We’ll be bringing you the full calendar for 2015 soon but in the meantime, there is plenty to keep us occupied at Seoul and Busan on this chilly first weekend.
Jeju takes the weekend off so there are huge cards at Busan on Friday and Seoul on Saturday before both tracks run their regular Sunday programs.
The traditional New Year’s Commemorative race will be race 8 at Seoul on Saturday:
Friday January 2
Busan Racecourse: 14 races from 11:40 to 18:00 (races 4-14 will be simulcast to the Singapore Turf Club).
Saturday January 3
Seoul Racecourse: 15 races from 10:50 to 18:00
Sunday January 4
Seoul Racecourse: 11 races from 10:50 to 18:00
Busan Racecourse: 5 races from 12:45 to 16:30
