About This Website

This website has been running since 2007 when it was set up to help expats in Korea attend the horse racing.

Gambling is not the only vice

Nowadays it also aims to both promote Korean horse racing and to provide a source of information for people who may have sold horses to Korea or for any other reason have an interest in racing here.

It also tries to provide an English language record of horse racing, as it happens, on the Korean peninsula.

“Gyongmaman” is Alastair Middleton, who has been living and working in Seoul for the past decade. Feel free to contact with any questions concerning horse racing in Korea at hrikorea@gmail.com.

The site isn’t endorsed by or written on behalf of the Korea Racing Authority (KRA)…although the author does now work for them and some articles may from time to time appear on their English language website http://company.kra.co.kr/global/english/main/index.jsp
