  • In the NHK Mile Cup, he was 1st favorite.
    He was in the lead right from the start and won by 3+1/2 lengths.
    It was his first G1 win.
    He was the first horse to win the NHK Mile Cup undefeated since El Condor Pasa.

    ////Shigeru Sudachi & Hiroki Goto////
    This has nothing to do with Curren Black Hill, but I’d like to mention Shigeru Sudachi and Hiroki Goto.
    Maybe I’ll post this on a separate page in the future, but I’ll put it on this page.
    Shigeru Sudachi fell due to Mount Shasta’s cross running.
    Shigeru Sudachi looked worriedly at the stuck jockey Hiroki Goto, not moving away.
    Horse racing fans were impressed with Shigeru Sudachi’s appearance, and he became a popular horse.
    //
    Then Shigeru Sudachi got injured during a race in November 2014.
    Even though he was fatally wounded, he did not lash out and did not drop Yuji Bushizawa, his jockey at the time.
    He was euthanized.
    Hiroki Goto mourned Shigeru Sudachi on Facebook, mentioning his kindness and greatness.
    //
    Hiroki Goto was one of the leading jockeys in the Kanto region, but he suffered a cervical spine injury in the NHK Mile Cup.
    He later returned in 2013 but fell again in 2014, injuring his cervical spine.
    He later returned to racing, but on February 21, 2015, he fell again and sprained his cervical spine.
    On February 22, he won two races without a break.
    On February 23, he recuperated in the hospital.
    On February 26, he reported to his fans on Facebook with a photo of him laughing about enjoying the Enka show.
    On February 27, around 8:00 a.m., he was found hanged to death in his home.
    The exact reason for his suicide is unknown.
    The neck injury is very painful whether he is awake or asleep, so he may have committed suicide because of it.

  • In the Mainichi Okan, he was 1st favorite.
    It was a high level G2 race with Eishin Flash, Real Impact and Grand Prix Boss and others running in it.
    Curren Black Hill won by a neck.
    He has won five straight since his debut.
    Just a Way, who would later become the best horse in the world, came in 2nd.
  • In the Tenno Sho (autumn 2012), he lost for the first time.
  • In the February Stakes, it was his first dirt racing.
    His jockey, Shinichiro Akiyama, had been saying since the previous year’s Tenno Sho that Curren Black Hill would be amazing on dirt.
    He was 1st favorite, due in part to such a bullish statement from his jockey.
    But he came in 15th out of sixteen.
    On Internet forums, his statements were often used as a laughingstock, with comments such as, “That was really amazing.
    (However, the reality is that many horses fail in their first dirt race.)
  • He never ran a single dirt race after that.
    He didn’t do so well, but he did win two G3 races.

As a stallion

  • As of 2021, none of his crops have won a graded race.
  • But he’s a lot like his sire, Daiwa Major, and quite a few of his crops have won more than one race.
    They are especially active in dirt racing.
    This suggests that maybe Curren Black Hill really had a talent for dirt racing.
