Arima Kinen (G1) 5 5
  • In the Hanshin Sansai Himba Stakes, she was 2nd favorite.
    She was easy to win by 5 lengths.
    It was her first G1 win.
  • She won the JRA Award for Best Two-Year-Old Filly (1993).
  • At that time, there were only a limited number of races in which foreign horses could run.
    In the first half of 1994, there were no races in which she could run in G1 races, so they won G2 races and G3 races.
  • The Crystal Cup is often talked about in her race.
    The race was a 1200m sprint-race.
    By the last 100 meters, she was 4 lengths behind the lead horse.
    Then she overtook the lead horse and won by 1 lengths.

    Many horse racing fans were stunned by her finishing kick.
    There was even a pundit who chose this race instead of the Narita Brian’s race as the best race of the year.
  • The Queen Elizabeth II Cup (1994) was a first G1 race for her of the year.
    After all she won by a nose.
    Her jockey, Eiji Nakadate, said “We were in a position not to lose, so we went from behind, went through the outside, and were racing to win at the end, even if the margin was small.”

    She beat other fillies of the same age and proved she was the best.
  • In the Arima Kinen (1994), there were old horses and colts, including Narita Brian.
    Her jockey marked Narita Brian who was a Triple Crown horse and the same age.

    Narita Brian took the lead at the last corner.
    She tried to follow him but couldn’t keep up.
    After all she lost to Narita Brian by 3 lengths.
    However, the difference between her and the third Rice Shower was 2.5 lengths.
    Her connections said “Narita Brian was too strong. It was a race that she usually wins.”
  • In the Japan Cup (1995), she lost to Land (Ger).
  • In the Queen Elizabeth Cup (1996), she was already not expected to do much.
    Moreover, she had an accident where she got her head caught under the starting gate.
    Due to this accident, she had to start from the outermost gate.
    However, she ran well and came in 2nd place.
    However, due to the cross-running, her place was changed to 7th place.

Episode

  • At first Her owner decided to make her name Hishi Amazones.
    However, the name was rejected by JRA.
    It’s said to be because of an erotic Italian movie called Amazones.
  • She was on good terms with Hokuto Vega in the same stable.
  • She was called “女傑” (Brave Woman / Heroine / Great Woman).
    She usually had a calm personality.

The strongest filly in history

  • She only wins two G1 races, but a few people consider her the strongest filly ever.
    She was the only horse that was trying to catch up to Narita Brian when he was at the top form.
  • In 1995 (age 4), she went to the USA because there were few races she could run.
    However, due to an injury, she never raced in the USA and returned to Japan.
    If there were more G1 races she could run, her racing results would have been awesome.
  • The following are the G1 races that foreign-bred horses were not allowed to run in at the time.
    • Oka Sho, Yushun Himba, Tenno Sho (spring), Tenno Sho (autumn), and the three classic races for colts.
  • The following G1 races did not exist at the time.
    • NHK Mile Cup, Shuka Sho, Victoria Mile, Osaka Hai and dirt-G1 races.
