  • In the Hanshin Daishoten, he was easy to win by 2+1/2 lengths.
    It was his first grade-race win.
  • He had some good runs in G1 races after that.
    But he hadn’t won in some time.
    He lost three times, especially to Kitasan Black, who was the same age as him.
  • In the Japan Cup (2017), he was 5th favorite.
    Kitasan Black made a pace as usual.
    Cheval Grand passed Kitasan Black 100m before the finish-line and won.
    It was his first G1 win.
  • In the Arima Kinen (2017), he was 3rd favorite.
    It was a Kitasan Black’s retirement race.
    Cheval Grand was interfered with by Suave Richard and finished third.
  • He then stayed active until 2019 (age 7) when he retired.

Episode

  • His dam, Halwa Sweet, was born without a tailbone, making her a popular racehorse without a tail.

  • Verxina (born in 2009, sire: Deep Impact) is his sister.
    She won the Victoria Mile (2013,2014).
  • Vivlos (born in 2013, sire: Deep Impact) is his sister.
    She won the Shuka Sho (2016) and Dubai Turf (2017).
  • His owner is Kazuhiro Sasaki, a professional baseball player who also played in MLB.
    (Kazuhiro Sasaki – Wikipedia)
    He’s a fan of Halwa Sweet and buys all of Halwa Sweet’s crops.
    Another reason he bought Halwa Sweet’s crops was that he thought that since Halwa Sweet had won five races without a tail, if her crops had a tail, they would be a great success.
