  • T.M. Opera O showed a great performance.
    He won all eight races, including all five middle and long distance G1 races for old horses.
    He is the first horse get a special bounty of “the Autumn Old Horse Triple Crown” by winning Tenno Sho (autumn), Japan Cup and Arima Kinen in the same year.
    The great feat he achieved was called “Grand Slam”.
  • Air Shakur won the Double Crown.
    He lost to Agnes Flight by a nose (7cm) in the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby).
    He was called “the Quasi-Triple Crown horse” because he would have been a Triple Crown winner if he had not lost the Derby by a nose.
  • Starting this year, foreign-bred horses were allowed to run in the Tenno Sho.
  • Japan Cup Dirt was newly established.
