  • In the Satsuki Sho, the first classic race, he was 2nd favorite.
    He won by a neck.

    His connections announced plans to run in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
  • In the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby), the second classic race, he was 1st favorite.
    He and Agnes Flight finished side by side.

    Air Shakur lost by 7cm.
  • He run in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes as planned.
    He finished in 5th place.
    (1st: Montjeu)
  • In the Kikuka Sho, the last classic race, he was 2nd favorite.
    He had a habit of swaying to the right.
    His jockey, Yutaka Take, had him running the rail from beginning to finish.
    This riding was said that this is one of Yutaka Take’s best rides, because he figured out his habit and used it to advantage.

    He won by a neck.
  • After that he could not leave the good result.
  • In Japan Cup (2000), he was 3rd favorite.
    He was 14th.
    Excluding foreign horses, the 3-year-old horses finished 13th to 16th out of 16 horses.
    No horse ever played well as an old horse.
    Because of this, they were called a low-level generation.
    (Agnes Digital, Tap Dance City and Eishin Preston played well as an old horse.
    But they were foreign-bred horses and never got to run in the classic races.)

Episode

  • He was so bad-tempered that assistant trainers had to draw a lottery for “Air Shakur of today.”
  • He is a Double Crown horse by winning the Satsuki Sho and the Kikuka Sho.
    He couldn’t become a Triple Crown horse because he lost by 7cm in the Tokyo Yushun.
    For this reason he is also called “準三冠馬 (the Quasi-Triple Crown Horse)”.
