  • In the Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes, he was 1st favorite.
    He won by 3/4 lengths.
    It was his first G1 win.
    He won the JRA Award for Best Two-Year-Old Colt (2001).
  • In 2002 (age 3), he ran all the classic races.
    He was 7th in the Satsuki Sho, 6th in the Tokyo Yushun and 4th in the Kikuka Sho.
    His connections decided to switch him to dirt racing.
    Only two weeks after the Kikuka Sho race on the turf-3,000-meter, he suddenly found himself running in a dirt G1 race.
  • In the JBC Classic (2002), he was 2nd favorite.
    It was his first dirt race, and it was only two weeks after the previous race, so it was surprising that he was 2nd favorite.
    He met expectations and overwhelmed the other horses.
    He won by 7 lengths.
  • He won many more dirt races after that.
  • In the Elm Stakes, he won by 9 lengths.
  • In the Mile Championship Nambu Hai (2003), he won by 4 lengths.
  • In the JBC Classic (2003), he won by 3 lengths.
  • In the Japan Cup Dirt (2003), he and Fleetstreet Dancer (USA) finished side by side.
    It was a close enough loss that the TV caster erroneously said that Admire Don won.
  • In the JBC Classic (2004), he won by 3/4 lengths.
    He became the first horse in history to win the same G1 races three times in a row.
    (As of 2020, no horse has yet won three consecutive turf G1 races sponsored by the JRA.)
  • He won the JRA Award for Best Dirt Horse (2003, 2004).

Episode 

  • A joint retirement ceremony was held for Admire Don, Admire Groove and Admire Max at Northern Horse Park.
  • He didn’t succeed as a stallion, so he was exported to Korea.
    After he was exported, his crops, Albert and Admire Deus, won the grade-races.
