Teio Sho (G1) 1 11 G
  • In the Marine Cup, she won her first grade race.
  • She then won two G3 races and one G2 race.
    And she was going to challenge G1 races.
  • In the Tokyo Daishoten (1999), she was 3rd favorite.
    She lot to World Creek by 1/2 lengths.
  • In the Teio Sho (2000), she was 2nd favorite.
    Meisei Opera was 1st favorite and Wing Arrow was 3rd favorite.
    Fast Friend passed Meisei Opera and took the lead early.
    She won by a neck.
    It was her first G1 win.
  • In the Tokyo Daishoten (2000), she was 1st favorite.
    She took the lead 200m before the finish line.
    She won by 1+1/2 lengths.
  • She may be the most successful filly or mare in dirt grade racing in Japan as of 2021.
    (Until the grading system was introduced, there were Hokuto Vega and Rosita.
    Other mares who have been successful in dirt races include To the Victory, who finished 2nd in the Dubai World Cup, and Sambista, the first mare ever to win a JRA dirt G1 race for mixed mares and colts.)
  • In the Oguri Cap Kinen, the commentator became the topic.
    (Youtube     Nicovideo)
    He was so excited in the homestretch that his voice was hoarse and he couldn’t speak very well.
    It is a popular topic related to Fast Friend.
    He said,
    “ファストフレンドはとどかない (Fast Friend wa Todokanai),”
    instead of saying,
    “ファストフレンドはとどかにゃい (Fast Friend wa Todokanyai).”
    ///
    Fast Friend wa Todokanai means Fast Friend can’t catch up.
    ///
    He was probably excited because he was a commentator for Kasamatsu Keiba and the likely 1st place winner, Hakata Big One, was also a horse belonging to Kasamatsu Keiba.
