Antonio Da Silva has broken his maiden in Korea. The Brazilian jockey opened his account with last to first effort on 7/1 chance Gutongsa in race 6 at Seoul Racecourse on Saturday afternoon.
Gutongsa (Spring At Last) was Da Silva’s (called Antonio Davielson in the race card) 12th mount since debuting full-time last weekend. He rides Hidden Indian in the Group 2 Ttukseom Cup on Sunday.
The win was also a first for new trainer Jun Seung Kyu on what was just his second every starter.
* Da Silva’s win comes a day after Korean Champion jockey Moon Se Young rode his first winner in Singapore. Moon guided the Alwin Tan trained Thunder Cat to a last gasp victory in the closing race 9 at Kranji on Friday night. Full result and race video here.
