Racing in Korea

The Korean equivalent of the Breeders' Cup (I believe) is this weekend, and it has attracted quite a bit of contingent from abroad, just like last year.

USA Poised for Success at Keeneland Korea Cup and Sprint
https://www.paulickreport.com/features/ ... -sprint-2/
This Saturday night, Sept. 8th, marks the 2018 Korea Autumn Racing Carnival and the latest chapter in Korea's drive to position itself as the next horse racing superpower. This year's edition is poised to be biggest and most geographically diverse to date, with nine different countries represented across the two main features. Fans in the United States could have an especially exciting evening ahead of them as Chublicious, the only entrant both bred and trained in the USA, has a strong chance for a podium finish in the night's main event.

Thanks for posting! It's always great to see pics for these events.

I must say though...the rider on Chublicious might want to reconsider the color of some of his attire... :lol:

Ennobled Friend scratched from the Korea Cup. He is not injured, just needs "some rest".

I always enjoy seeing Afleet Alex's offspring do well so I'll be sure to keep up with Dolkong.
