  • After Centaur Stakes, his jockey Kenichi Ikezoe suggested his trainer enter the Sprinters Stakes (2003).
  • In the Sprinters Stakes (2003), he was 5th favorite.
    He was at the end when he entered the straight line.
    He overtook all the other horses such as Calstone Light O, Admire Max and Believe.
    He won by nose (about 15cm).
    It was his first G1 win.
  • In the Mile Championship (2003), he was 5th favorite.
    He showed a great finishing kick again.
    He won by 3/4 lengths defeating Fine Motion.
  • He awarded the JRA Award for Best Sprinter or Miler (2003).
  • He was a horse that was good at fighting with finishing kick, so he was not good at racecourses with small turns and short stretch.
    For the same reason he was not good at running in yielding or soft tracks.
  • In the Takamatsunimiya Kinen, he lost to Sunningdale.
    The home stretch of Chukyo Racecourse before the renovation was short, so he couldn’t catch up with Sunningdale.
  • In the Sprinters Stakes (2004), the track was soft.
    He lost to Calstone Light O and finished in 2nd place.
  • In the Mile Championship (2004), he came from behind and won by 2 lengths.
  • In the Hong Kong Mile, the track was firm (hard).
    But the organizer sprinkled a large amount of water.
    He finished in 5th place.
    His jockey Kenichi Ikezoe said “The track condition was worse than it was at the Sprinters Stakes.”
  • He awarded the JRA Award for Best Sprinter or Miler (2004).
  • In the Sprinters Stakes (2005), he lost to Silent Witness (AUS).

Bloodline

  • He was the first horse to win the G1 race with sire Sunday Silence and dam-sire Northern Taste.
    It can be said that it was very late.

    Northern Taste awarded the Leading sire in Japan 11 times and the best Brood Mare Sire 17 times.
    Sunday Silence awarded the Leading sire in Japan 13 times
    However the mating of these two horses was not very compatible.
    Trainers and owners also refused to run the horses born in this mating in short distance races.
    Admire Max and Daiwa Major have been active in short distance races since Durandal succeeded in short distance races.

As sire 

  • He is a sire of 6 grade race winners.
  • Erin Court won the Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks) (G1).

As dam-sire
