  • The impact of The Great Hanshin earthquake
    There was heavy damage around the Hanshin Racecourse.
    Races at Hanshin Racecourse were held at Kyoto Racecourse and Chukyo Racecourse as alternatives.
    In G1 races, the Oka Sho and Takarazuka Kinen were held at Kyoto Racecourse.
  • The Unstoppable “fever of Sunday Silence
    Fuji Kiseki retired before the classic races.
    But other Sunday Silence’s crops played an active role.
    Genuine was 1st and Tayasu Tsuyoshi was 2nd in the Satsuki Sho.
    Tayasu Tsuyoshi was 1st and Genuine was 2nd in the Tokyo Yushun.
    Dance Partner was 2nd in the Oka Sho and 1st in the Yushun Himba.Sunday Silence won the JRA award for Leading Sire by just two generations of crops.
  • 交流元年 / the First Year of Interaction
    The movement of JRA and NAR to work together to manage the race has been seen since 1993.
    Since 1995, the number of races, in which horses of different associations can run, has increased significantly.
    Therefore, the year 1995 is called the First Year of Interaction.The symbols of it are such as Lively Mount, Raiden Leader and Hokuto Vega.
    Lively Mount continued to win major races in NAR while belonging to JRA.
    Raiden Leader ran in all three classic races for fillies in JRA while belonging to  NAR.
    Hokuto Vega won the Empress Hai by about 18 lengths.
    She showed a dominant performance that will lead to more success in the next year.
  • The races for Anglo-Arabian horses at JRA was discontinued.
