Great weather, a large enthusiastic audience and great racing made the New Year’s Eve Ugetosilveszter at Kincsem Park in Budapest, Hungary very special, as it always is. This celebration of horse and human leaders accompanies a fine racing program that began with the Corvinus-Konfetti DIJ (purse 800,000Huf, 1900 meters autostart).

Pan Globe Jaycee (5f Muscles Yankee-Impala Jaycee-Othello Vivant) scored at 5.2/1 timed in 1.16.6kr for Goran Zolnaji, and she is now unbeaten in Hungary in two outings. 5/1 Zona (4f Offenbach Bigi-Kama-Valley Guardian) was second for Emil Csordas and 5.9/1 Zara Mia (4f Vanito) took third money for Ferenc Nagy II.
