  • In the first half of 2018 he finished second in the Kisaragi Sho but gave up the spring classic races due to his weak constitution.
  • In the second half of 2018, he won the race in July against old horses and went on to the Kikuka Sho.
  • In the Kikuka Sho, he was the 12th favorite, partly because of the outermost gate, but he ran well, finishing 5th.
    The winner was Fierement.
  • In the Nikkei Shinshun Hai, he was the 1st favorite.
    He won by 1/2 lengths.
    It was his first grade race win.
  • In the Tenno Sho (spring), he was the 6th favorite.
    As Fierement made his move around the final corner, Glory Vase also started to follow.
    They competed for a long time in the homestretch, but Glory Vase lost to Fierement by 1/2 lengths.
    But he was 6 lengths ahead of the 3rd-place finisher.
  • In the Hong Kong Vase (2019), he was the 3rd favorite.
    He passed Exultant, a Hong Kong horse, for the lead with 200 meters to go.
    He won by 3+1/2 lengths over the 2nd-place finisher, Lucky Lilac.
    It was his first G1 win.
  • In 2020 he went to Dubai to run in the Dubai Turf, but the race was cancelled due to COVID-19.
    After returning to Japan, he was not ready for the Tenno Sho (spring) and ran in the Takarazuka Kinen, but finished 17th.
    Around this time, it became common to say that he was not good at running on slopes, and that he could run better at Kyoto Racecourse and Sha Tin Racecourse, where there are no slopes on the main stretches of the tracks.
  • In the Japan Cup, he ran well against three Triple Crown winners – Almond Eye, Contrail and Daring Tact – but finished 5th.
    In 2020 he did not go to Hong Kong due to the impact of COVID-19, which is probably why he ran in the Japan Cup.
  • In the Queen Elizabeth Ⅱ Cup, he lost to Loves Only You and finished 2nd.
    The reason he ran in this race might be due to the fact that the Tenno Sho (spring) was to be held at the Hanshin Racecourse due to the renovation of the Kyoto Racecourse from November 2020.
  • In the Hong Kong Vase (2021), he was the 1st favorite.
    He overtook Pyledriver for the win.
    This was his second win in the Hong Kong Vase.
  • In the Hong Kong Vase (2022), it was his last race.
    He lost to Win Marilyn and finished 3rd.
  • He has retired.
    He will become a stallion.
    He might have been more successful if not for COVID-19 and the renovation of the Kyoto Racecourse.
    (However, if the COVID-19 epidemic had been faster or if the impact of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protests had been greater, he might not have won the 2019 Hong Kong Vase.)

His Pedigree

  • The predecessor of Lake Villa Farm, where he was born, was Mejiro Stud, famous for its horse named Mejiro.
    Lake Villa Farm is in the process of being rebuilt as a market breeder rather than an owner breeder with the support of Northern Farm.
    The main part of the broodmares were produced during the Mejiro Stud period.
  • He is a horse of the family line of Mejiro as well.
    He is the great-grand-foal of Mejiro Ryan and Mejiro Ramonu.
