Poullis Gets 1st Korean Winner / Easy For Road Winner At Seoul But World Day Beaten At Busan

Richard Oliver did it on Friday and on Sunday it was the turn of Ioannis Poullis to make his Busan breakthrough and ride his first Korean winner.

The Cypriot jockey did it the hard way too, guiding 60/1 chance Jeongsang Korea to victory in a hard-fought concluding race 6.

Richard Oliver Rides First Korean Winner / New Legend Maintains 100% Record

After a string of near-misses, the hard work paid off for Richard Oliver at Busan Racecourse on Friday afternoon, the British jockey riding four runners-up throughout the day before finally being rewarded with victory on Core Blade in the concluding race 12.

It was perhaps fitting that the win came on Core Blade, the filly who provided Oliver with his first Busan mount as a late pick-up a month ago. Since then there has been the Lunar New Year holiday and Oliver returned for the first meeting back in fine form, dead-heating for 2nd on his opening mount of the afternoon, Lucky Number One in race 3.

(2) GOLDEN SHARP will be the pick here. Having hinted at ability across his first four starts he improved to 2nd last time behind a good-looking winner. He’s well drawn to lead and can make the breakthrough here. (8) B.K. SOUND was ordinary on debut but has since registered a 2nd and a 3rd and is sure to be close here.

Super Silver Wolf Splashes Through Seoul Slop To Retain Donga Ilbo

Silver Wolf successfully retained her Donga Ilbo Trophy title on Sunday, overcoming a game Cheongsu Yeogeol in a back and forth stretch duel at a soaking wet Seoul Racecourse.

The former Champion Filly/Mare was sent off at a shade worse than even money for the 1800M Listed event that she won a year ago with Gyeongnam Governor’s Cup winner Sky Bay second in the market ahead of the overall 2018 Queens’ Tour winner Cheongsu Yeogeol.

Silver Wolf Faces Sky Bay In Donga Ilbo Cup

One of Korea’s all-time great race-mares kicks off her 2019 season on Sunday afternoon and Silver Wolf, never one to be shielded from a challenge, will face stern examination as she seeks to defend her Donga Ilbo Trophy title over 1800M at Seoul Racecourse.

An Australian-bred by Oratorio, Silver Wolf was purchased as for $40,000 at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale in 2014. She’s since gone on to amass over US$1.5Million in prize money and in 2017 swept all three legs of the Queens’ Tour to be named Champion Filly/Mare. Competent at any distance, after winning this race last year, she went to Busan and defeated Power Blade over 1200M in the Busan Ilbo Cup.

Mask Reveals His Sprinting Talent In Segye Ilbo Cup

Mask ran out a dominant winner of the Segye Ilbo Cup, landing Korea’s first Listed race of 2019 by a commanding two-and-a-half lengths under a fine ride by reigning champion jockey Antonio Da Silva at Seoul Raceourse on Sunday afternoon.

Second in last year’s Korean Derby, Mask was dropping back to six-furlongs for the first time since he was a juvenile but having ended last season strongly, the Testa Matta colt was sent off as co-favourite alongside Cheonji Storm, 3rd in this race a year ago.

Six of these raced each other over class and distance on December 23rd. (3) LIVINGSTONE came home the best of them that day in 2nd place, a length ahead of (8) L CHOICE in 3rd. Those two could well be fighting it out for top honours this time. On the same day but in a different race, (11) RAISING ANGEL raced greenly but still did enough to win. She’s up in class but should be competitive.
