The scheduled race meetings at Seoul and Busan Racecourses on Sunday February 23 have both been postponed following the recent rapid rise in COVID-19 infections in Korea.
Confirmed infections in Korea of the highly contagious virus rose from just 31 on Tuesday to 346 by Saturday lunchtime. Saturday’s meetings at Seoul and Jeju went ahead as planned.
There is no online or telephone betting in Korea so running races behind closed doors is not an option.
In what is a quickly-evolving situation in the country, an announcement on next week’s scheduled racing is expected to be made on Wednesday.
