  • Kane Hekili could not win a turf race.
    But he was very strong when he ran in a dirt race.
  • In the Japan Dirt Derby, he was 1st favorite.
    He won by 4 lengths.
    It was his first g1 win.
  • In the Derby Grand Prix, he won easily.
  • In the Japan Cup Dirt (2005), Kane Hekili, Seeking the Dia and Star King Man competed in the home stretch.
    Kane Hekili won by a slight difference.
    He became a dirt champion at the age of three.
  • He won the JRA Award for Best Dirt Horse (2005).
  • In 2006, he won the February Stakes.
  • He challenged the Dubai World Cup because there were no enemies in Japan, but he finished in 4th place.
  • He suffered from bowed tendon and had to fight for 2 years and 4 months.
  • In the Japan Cup Dirt (2008), he won for the first time in 2 years and 10 months.
    He beat Vermilion who was a dirt champion 2007 and the same age as him. 
  • In the Tokyo Daishoten, he beat Vermilion again and won.
    He has won the JRA Award for Best Dirt Horse for the second time since 2005.
  • In 2009, he won the Kawasaki Kinen.
    After the Kasiwa Kinen, he took a break for more than a year due to a fracture.
  • In 2010, he had a stable record after he returned.
    But he retired due to an injury.
  • He’s had some great results in dirt races.
    But he was suffered a lot of injuries.
    Nonetheless, he was late to retirement and becoming a stallion.
    Maybe that’s because dirt racing isn’t mainstream in Japan and there weren’t any good offers for him as a stallion.

Episode

  • He was sometimes called “砂のディープインパクト (Sand Deep Impact / Dirt Deep Impact)”.
    The reason for this is that he and Deep Impact were the same age, born on the same ranch and owned by the same owner.
    To add a few more reasons, both horses were very strong, and were often ridden by jockey Yutaka Take.
