Apprentice Kim Deok Hyeon Wins On First Day

Not a bad start to his career for apprentice Kim Deok Hyeon. He made his debut on at Seoul Racecourse on Saturday with two rides and in the second of those, coolly produced 12/1 chance Samjung Tapit at the perfect moment to snatch victory.

Kim is one of three new apprentice jockeys at Seoul this year. The other two, Kim Hyo Jeong and Lee Dong Jin debuted last week and are awaiting their first successes.
