  • In the Tokyo Sports Hai Nisai Stakes,  he won by 5 lengths.
    It was his first grade-race win.
  • In the Hopeful Stakes, he won by 2+1/2 lengths.
    It was his first G1 win.
  • He performed dominantly at the age of two.
    The JRA Award for Best Two-Year-Old Colt (2019) goes to him, not Salios.
    Salios had won the Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes.
    It was the first time that a horse that won the Asahi Hai was not selected for the award.
  • In the Satsuki Sho, the first classic race, he was the 1st favorite.
    The showdown between Contrail and Salios was notable.
    Salios Took the lead in the home stretch.
    Contrail passed Salios and won by 1/2 lengths.
  • In the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby), the second classic race, he was the 1st favorite.
    He was easy to win by 3 lengths.
    Salios was 2nd.
  • A week before the Kikuka Sho, the third classic race, Daring Tact became an undefeated Triple Crown filly.
    Contrail was expected to be the first Triple Crown horse since Orfevre and the first undefeated Triple Crown horse since his sire Deep Impact.
    And many fans expected to see two undefeated Triple Crown winners in the same year.
    The crowd that wasn’t there because of COVID-19 was back in limited numbers.
    ///
    In the race, he was by far the most favorite.

    (Salios didn’t run in the race.)
    He took the lead at the beginning of the last-home stretch.
    He was nearly passed by Aristoteles, but he persevered and won.
    He became a brilliant, undefeated Triple Crown horse.
  • In the Japan Cup (2020), Three Triple Crown winners, Almond Eye Contrail and Daring Tact, ran.
    It was the first time in history that three Triple Crown winners had run in the same race.
    Almond Eye was the 1st favorite, Contrail was the 2nd favorite and Daring Tact was the 3rd favorite.
    Contrail passed Daring Tact, but could not catch up with Almond Eye.
    In the end, first place went to Almond Eye, second place by 1+1/4 lengths went to Contrail, and third place by a neck went to Daring Tact.
  • In the Osaka Hai, he lost to Lei Papale and finished 3rd.
  • In the Tenno Sho (autumn), he lost to Efforia and finished 2nd.
  • In the Japan Cup (2021), it was his retirement race.
    Four Derby horses, Makahiki, Wagnerian, Contrail, and Shahryar, ran in the race.
    It was the first time in history that four Derby horses had run in the same race.
    The race was run on the same 2400 meter turf at Tokyo Racecourse as the Derby, and Contrail won the last race by 2 lengths.
  • He retired and will begin working as a stallion in 2022.
