Veteran Simjangui Godong was 2nd with sprinter Eoma Eoma 3rd. “He won the Breeders’ Cup as a two-year-old but he hasn’t been a straightforward horse” winning trainer Ba ..read more

The Korea Premier Series kicks off at Busan Racecourse on Sunday afternoon with the Busan Owners’ Cup (1600M KOR-G3). SEE HERE FOR FULL PREVIEW OF ALL 17 RACES ACROSS BUSAN AND SEOUL ON SUNDAY.

Accordingly, it has attracted a full field and some unlikely match ups. Unlikely to the extent that few would have thought that two of the best sprinters of the past few years, Eoma Eoma ..read more
