  • The aftermath of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami (Wikipedia)
    The earthquake also had a major impact on the horse racing industry.
    Fukushima Racecourse and Iwate Keiba of NAR were especially badly damaged.
    Among the G1 races, the Satsuki Sho was held at Tokyo Racecourse, the Nakayama Grand Jump was held at a distance of 4260m, and the Mile Championship Nambu Hai was held at Tokyo Racecourse by JRA.
  • Due to the renovation of Chukyo Racecourse from the previous year, the Takamatsunomiya Kinen was held at Hanshin Racecourse.
  • Victoire Pisa won the Dubai World Cup.
  • Orfevre won the Triple Crown.
  • Snow Fairy (UK) won the Queen Elizabeth II Cup two years in a row.
    It was the first time a foreign-trained horse had won the same Japanese flat-G1 races two years in a row.
