    It was her first grade race win.
    Fusaichi Pandora was 2nd, and Blumenblatt was 3rd.
  • In the Oka Sho, she was 6th favorite.
    Asahi Rising took the lead right from the start of the race and was still running patiently on the home stretch.

    It was her first G1 win.

    (Kawakami Princess won both races.)
    After that, she had a few good runs, but could not win.
  • In the Keisei Hai Autumn Handicap, she won by 1+1/4 lengths.
    It was her first victory in two years and five months.
  • In the Nakayama Himba Stakes (2009), it was her retirement race.
    She passed Pink Cameo before the finish line and won.

Her name

  • Her owner is Kazuko Yoshida, wife of Zenya Yoshida, the founder of Shadai Farm.
    She was named in the hope that the kisses would reach her sire, Admire Vega, and dam-sire, Northern Taste, in heaven.
    ///
    Admire Vega was born at Northern Farm, a member of Shadai Group, and was expected to be a stallion, but he died early in 2004.
    Northern Taste was very successful as a stallion, rapidly growing Shadai Group, and was treated with great care as the Shadai Group’s most meritorious horse, but he died in 2004 at the age of 33.
    Vega, the dam of Admire Vega, was also owned by Kazuko Yoshida.
