Weekend Race Times

It’s suddenly got cold across the Korean peninsula! Temeratures have touched as low as freezing point in the capital Seoul and while Busan is, as ever, slightly warmer, it’s still a good 10C colder than last week.  So it’s a good thing there’s plenty happening on the track to keep us warm.

It is set to be a bright but chilly weekend

Feature race of the weekend is at Busan and the final leg of the Queens’ Tour for fillies and mares. That’s the Gyeongnam Governor’s Cup and will take place on Sunday afternoon. We will have a full preview of the big race on Saturday. In the meantime, here’s what’s happening when and where:

(Update – Oct 31: Italian jockey Nicola Pinna who has ridden in Japan and Hong Kong as well as his home country, debuts at Seoul this weekend with two rides on Saturday and one on Sunday. Japan’s Makoto Okabe will join Busan next week).
