Episode

  • According to the stables staff, Lord Kanaloa was in love with Curren Chan.
    The stables staff treated the two horses carefully because Lord Kanaloa could go into heat when they were together.
    By the way, Curren Chan didn’t seem to have much interest in Lord Kanaloa.
  • As of 2020, since she became a bred-mare, one foal has been born with her and Lord Kanaloa.
    The foal’s name is Curren Moe, and she plays an active role including finishing second in a G3 race.
