The era of foreign ownership of racehorses hits Seoul on Saturday. Race 1 sees Alexandra, owned by Arthur Inglis, making her debut in race 1.
Inglis purchased Alexandra (Hawk Wing) for KRW 15 Million at the Jeju 2-year-old sale in May. Hopes are not exactly sky-high yet as she scraped through her barrier trial just within the qualifying time. Kim Hye Sun will ride. A number of other 2-year-olds belonging to the newly licensed foreign owners are expected to debut in the next few weeks.
That’s the first race of two days at Seoul which culminate on Sunday afternoon with the Minister’s Cup, the final leg of the 2015 Triple Crown. We’ll have a full runner-by-runner preview of the big race shortly.
