- In the Asahi Hai Sansai Stakes, he lost to L-Way Win and finished 2nd.
- Before the Satsuki Sho, Biwa Hayahide and Winning Ticket were rumored top two horses of classic races.
In the race, Biwa Hayahide passed Winning Ticket in the home stretch.
However, he was passed by Narita Taishin just before the finish-line.
After the race, Narita Taishin was added to “top two” horses and it was changed “top three” horses.
Top three horses was sometimes called “BNW” from their initials.
- In the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese derby), he was the 2nd favorite.
On the last corner, Biwa Hayahide’s jockey tried to went into the outside avoiding the bad condition track on the inside.
But he was a little sluggish.
Meanwhile, Winning Ticket passed him from inside and ran a little outside.
After all, Winning Ticket was 1st, Biwa Hayahide was 2nd and Narita Taishin who came from behind was 3rd.
- His trainer imposed him hard training until autumn, imitating Mihono Bourbon.
He was also timid about noise, so he wore a mask but practiced without it to react faster to the jockey’s movements.
- In the Kobe Shimbun Hai, he showed the results of his training and won.
The announcer Sugimoto, who was reporting on the race, said, “I am amazed to see how big his face is when he takes off his mask.
- In the Kikuka Sho, he was the 1st favorite.
He finally won the G1 race.
Winning Ticket finished in 3rd place.
Narita Taishin finished in 17th place because he was sick from the influence of lung hemorrhage.
- In 1994 (age 4), he won the Tenno Sho (spring) and the Takarazuka Kinen, so he became top one of old horses.
Around the same time his brother Narita Brian was very active.
Biwa Hayahide’s connections decided to match with Narita Brian in the Arima Kinen (25/12/1994).
- In the Tenno Sho(autumn), he was the 1st favorite.
Until this race, he finished only in 1st place or 2nd place in all the races he has run to date.
He finished in 5th place.
He developed bowed tendon during this race.
(Winning Ticket, like him, developed bowed tendon during this race.)
He was retired and the showdown with Narita Brian didn’t happen.
- He was often said to have a big face and was laughed by horse racing fans.
However, because of his calm atmosphere, he had many female fans.
The contrast is often talked about when he and Tokai Teio who is known as Good-Looking-Horse lined up in the Arima Kinen. (Google images)
