  • From this year, Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes was held at Hanshin Racecourse instead of Nakayama Racecourse.
  • Radio Nikkei Hai Nisai Stakes (G3) is changed its name and grade to Hopeful Stakes (G2) and is held at Nakayama Racecourse instead of Hanshin Racecourse.
    Hopeful Stakes would be promoted to G1 in 2017.
  • This year’s Sprinters Stakes was held at Niigata Racecourse due to maintenance work at Nakayama Racecourse.
  • Japan Cup Dirt is renamed Champions Cup and held at Chukyo Racecourse instead of Hanshin Racecourse.
    In the United States, the main home of dirt racing, all racetracks are left-handed, so the racecourse was changed from the right-handed Hanshin racecourse to the left-handed Chukyo racecourse to encourage American horses to run.
  • Hokko Tarumae and Copano Rickey made dirt racing exciting.
  • Just a Way won the Dubai Duty Free by over 6 lengths.
    He broke the record by over two seconds.
    He became the first Japanese horse to win first place in the World’s Best Racehorse Rankings.
