The 2019 Summer Racing program begins this weekend with Friday and Saturday cards set to begin mid afternoon and end at 9pm. Sunday racing will continue to follow its usual program.
During July and August the racing schedule will typically be as follows:
Busan: 9 races from 14:30 to 21:00
Jeju: 9 races from 14:55 to 20:45
Seoul: 10 races from 14:50 to 21:00
Jeju: 8 races from 14:00 to 17:45
Seoul: 11 races from 10:45 to 18:00
Busan: 6 races from 12:40 to 17:05
There are exceptions though as during this period, each track will take one weekend off with the other two tracks picking up the slack with additional races. Jeju will be off on the final weekend of July meaning that on Friday July 26th, there will be a 14-race card at Busan and on Saturday July 27th, a 15-race card at Seoul.
Seoul will take the first weekend in August off and Busan the 2nd week meaning that on Friday 2nd and Friday 9th August, there will be no thoroughbred racing in Korea as Jeju will be the only track in operation.
