  • In the Oka Sho, the first classic race, she was 1st favorite.
    She took the lead at the beginning of the home stretch.
    She won by 3 lengths.
    It was her first G1 win.
    But she had already shown a bad temper, including wagging her tail in the home stretch.
  • In the Yushun Himba, the second classic race, she was 1st favorite.
    She was under-conditioned and weighed +14 kg from the previous race.
    And she was sweating profusely in the paddock.
    She finished 4th.
    She had a bad temper, just like her sister, and her bad temper was often a bad influence on her running.
  • The second half of 2004 was quite good for her, including a second place in the American Oaks, Tenno Sho (autumn) and Mile Championship.
    She won the JRA Award for Best Two-Year-Old Filly (2004).
  • In 2005 (age 4), she was in a slump for the first half of this year.
    She was starting to get back to her form in the second half of this year.
  • In 2006 (age 5), Victoria Mile has been established since this year.
    Her connections’ spring goal was it.
  • In the Victoria Mile, she was 2nd favorite.
    She took the lead 200m before the finish-line.
    She won defeating Air Messiah and Rhein Kraft.
  • She then continued to show good running and won the JRA Award for Best Older Filly or Mare (2006).

Episode (just a rumor, unverified)

  • Horse racing fans rumored that she was a bad-tempered young girl, but fell in love and became a ladylike woman.
    The colt she fell in love with was Daiwa Major.
    This is because she often crossed the finish line just behind Daiwa Major in the races.
    Fans called it “the Forbidden Love” of horses produced by the same stallion.
  • Her jockey, Yutaka Take, was asked why she was defeated in the Hong Kong Mile, which was her retirement race.
    He replied with a joking guess, “She was looking for Daiwa Major”.
  • It is only a rumor as written in the beginning.
    As an aside, Daiwa Major is said to have been well-loved by many mares.
