  • In the Daily Hai Nisai Stakes, he won by 1+3/4 lengths.
  • In the Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes, he was 4th favorite.
    He lost to Goshawk Ken and finished 3rd.
  • In the Satsuki Sho, he was 7th favorite.
    He took the lead right at the start of the race.
    As he came into the home stretch, he pulled away from the rest of the pack and crossed the finish line.
    It was the first G1 win for him and his jockey, Yuga Kawada.
  • After his victory at Satsuki Sho, it was assumed that he would naturally go for the Derby.
    However, after the race, it turned out that he had a broken bone.
    He was forced to give up the Derby due to injury, just like his sire Agnes Tachyon.
  • He returned from injury over a year later.
    After that, he did fairly well, winning the Asahi Challenge Cup two years in a row.

His Family

  • His family is active in Japanese horse racing, and connects Japan to other racing associations around the world.
  • Ski Paradise is his grand dam.
    Her owners are father and son Zenya and Teruya Yoshida of Shadai Farm.
    She was active in races in France and Japan.
    She won the Prix Jacques le Marois, a G1 race in France, with Yutaka Take riding.
    It was the first time a Japanese jockey had won a foreign G1 race.
  • Ski Captain is Ski Paradise’s younger brother.
    To Captain Thule, Ski Captain is grand uncle.
    Ski Captain won a G2 race in Japan and then went to the US to run in the Kentucky Derby.
    He was the first Japanese horse to run in the Kentucky Derby.
    The name “Captain” of Captain Thule comes from Ski Captain.
  • Air Thule is his dam.
    She did well, winning a G2 race in Japan and finishing 2nd in the Prix Maurice de Gheest, a G1 race in France.
    Her crops were active in racing and have won quite a number of races.
  • Ultima Thule is his older sister.
    She won one G2 race and one G3 race.
  • Crans Montana is his younger brother.
    He is the laughing stock of the Japanese Internet.
    He became famous at the Kokura Kinen in 2016 (No.3).
    He had always been a very motionless horse.
    Right after the race started, the jockey Ryuji Wada moved him hard.
    About 1,000 meters before the finish line, Ryuji Wada began to push him again and urged him to move with the stick.
    Crans Montana won his first grade race.
    The way he won was so out of the ordinary that it became a hot topic.
    And the post-race photos of Ryuji Wada looking exhausted and Crans Montana looking like he was going to kill Ryuji Wada became a hot topic.
