Takarazuka Kinen (G1) 6 16   
  • In the Kisaragi Sho, he won his first grade race.
  • He was beaten in the Satsuki Sho and NHK Mile Cup.
  • In the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby), he was 14th favorite.
    He took the lead right from the start of the race.
    He ran a good race to finish second, but didn’t get much attention due to the historic Derby victory of the filly Vodka.
  • In the Kikuka Sho, he was 4th favorite.
    He took the lead in the home stretch and won by a head.
    It was his first G1 win.
  • In the Tenno Sho (spring 2008), he was 1st favorite and finished 3rd.
  • In the Takarazuka Kinen (2008), he blocked Meisho Samson and Inti Raimi.
    After the race, Yutaka Take, the jockey of Meisho Samson, was angry with Hirofumi Shii, the jockey of Asakusa Kings.
    (Prior to this race, both Asakusa Kings and Hirofumi Shii had run wobbling left and right in the homestretch of Kikuka Sho and Tenno Sho (spring), appearing to be blocking the path.)
  • In 2009, he won the Kyoto Kinen and Hanshin Daishoten.
    He was in good form and was 1st favorite in the Tenno Sho (spring 2009), but he finished 9th.

As a sire

  • Genuine is his uncle.
  • He was later retired in 2011 and became a stallion.
    He was somewhat expected to be the successor to Dancing Brave and White Muzzle, but he didn’t do so well as a sire.
