  • In the Kyoto Shimbun Hai, he showed a great performance.
    He won by 6 lengths.
    He beat Mr.C.B. for the first time.
  • In the Kikuka Sho, the last classic race, he was 2nd favorite.
    He was expected to be the horse to stop Mr.C.B. from winning the Triple Crown based on his previous race.
    But the race was too long for him, and he finished 20th.
    Mr.C.B. won the Triple Crown.
  • The grading system has been in place in Japanese horse racing since 1984.
  • In the Takarazuka Kinen, he was 1st favorite.
    Mr.C.B. didn’t enter the race.
    He won by 1+1/4 lengths.
    It was his first G1 win.
  • In the Mainichi Okan, it was a preliminary race to the Tennou Sho (autumn).
    He won beating Mr.C.B..
  • In the Tenno Sho (autumn), he lost to Mr.C.B..
    He was ridiculed for “beating Mr.C.B. in the preliminaries and losing to Mr.C.B. in the main races” and “he could have won the Takarazuka Kinen because Mr.C.B. wasn’t there.”
  • In the Japan Cup, he was 10th favorite.
    He became the front runner and ran alone in the middle of the race.
    At one point there was so much of a gap between him and the horses behind him that the crowd went wild, but by the final turn there was very little difference between him and the horses behind him.
    He made a very tenacious run from there.
    He beat Mr. C.B., one year younger Triple Crown Horse, Symboli Rudolf, and foreign horses.
    He became the first Japanese horse to win the Japan Cup.
    (Japan Cup was the fourth time in that race.)
