    By this victory, he won the JRA Award for Best Two-Year-Old Colt (1995).
  • In the Fuji TV Spring Stakes, the trial race of Satsuki Sho, he overtook other horses in the home stretch and won.
    He was sometimes called “Sunday Big Four” along with Dance in the Dark, Royal Touch and Ishino Sunday.

  • Returning to the autumn, his connections decided to run in the Tenno Sho (autumn) instead of the last classic race Kikuka Sho.
  • In the Tenno Sho (autumn), he won defeating such as Mayano Top Gun, Sakura Laurel and Marvelous Sunday.
    It was the first time in history that a 3-year-old horse won the race.
  • In the Japan Cup (1996), he was totally unmotivated to run and lost.
    All his racing results were 3rd or higher except this race.
    His jockey, Yukio Okabe, was asked by a reporter, “Was he injured (broken)?”
    He asserted “It was the horse’s head(brain) that was broken.”
  • In his active days, he was a very good horse, but not the protagonist.
