LetsRun Park Busan–Gyeongnam is also known as Busan–Gyeongnam Horse Racing Park, the largest hippodrome in Busan, South Korea. It was opened in 2005, operated by Korea Racing Authority (KRA). Its course type is Thoroughbred (Flat racing).
As of 2017, Busan held live racing on Fridays and Sundays. 10-11 races on Fridays from 11:30 pm – 6:00 pm (with simulcasting from Jeju) and 6 races on Sundays from 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm (with simulcasting from Seoul). The track is also open every Saturday to show live simulcasting from Seoul. Some notable races held in this track are Korean Oaks (GII), KRA Cup Mile (GII), Busan Mayors Cup (GIII), Owners Cup (GIII), and Gyeongnam Governor’s Cup (GIII).
Among the three oval tracks in Busan, only two are used for races. The chute is also utilized for 1000M races, and unlike Seoul, the track configuration allows Mile races.
The capacity of the track is set at 32,000, with plenty of seating both outside and inside. There is a designated betting window for foreign visitors on the third floor with English language assistance if necessary. The tracks also have a family park and a lake in the infield and a “Ponyland” petting area on the Grandstand side. The Grandstand is a smaller version of the “Luckyville” grandstand at Seoul, accommodating 15,000 punters.
The track also has its distinguished characteristic where it serves lively bars and restaurants that can accommodate 30,000 people, located through the racecourse enclosure. These are the Bollinger Champagne Bar and Bistro, Curragh View and Horseshoe Bars, The Horseshoe Restaurant, and the Horace Pinks and Vintage Crop West End Bars. It also provides various entertainment for children throughout the horse racing afternoons, perfect for family bonding.
