Japanese Horse Racing in 1985

2020-11-19 | By jpkeiba | Filed in: History.


  • Miho Shinzan won the Double Crown.
  • Symboli Rudolf and Nihon Pillow Winner were just like the Champions.
  • A showdown between Symboli Rudolf and Nihon Pillow Winner in the Tenno Sho (Autumn) was noted.
    The winner was Gallop Dyna. (Symboli Rudolf: 2nd, Nihon Pillow Winer: 3rd)
  • A slope training course was built at the Ritto Training Center in Kansai.
    This is said to be the main reason why the number of victories of Kansai horses has been higher than that of Kanto horses since 1988.
    Before that, on the contrary, Kanto horses were stronger than Kansai horses.
    //A rough description//
    Kansai (Kansai region): Main locations in western Japan

    Ritto Training Center: JRA’s training facility in Ritto City, Shiga Prefecture in Kansai
