Mile Championship (G1) 1 14   
  • In the Daily Hai Queen Cup, she won her first grade race.
  • In the Oka Sho, she was the 5th favorite.
    She lost to Kiss to Heaven and finished 3rd.
  • In the Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks), she suffered an injury in the third corner and had to stop the race.
  • In the Shuka Sho, she came back but was not in good condition and finished in 17th place.
  • In the Victoria Mile, she was the 12th favorite.
    The inside of the track was bad condition, but she ran on the inside and gradually caught up with the lead horse.
    She won by 1/2 lengths.
    It was her first G1 win.
  • She then went to the U.S. to run in the Cashcall Mile Invitational Stakes.
    One conflict arises here.
    Victoria Mile was newly held by JRA in 2006.
    In 2006, the Victoria Mile was held under JRA’s self-proclaimed grade of G1, but it was denied by the ICSC(International Cataloguing Standard Committee), and in 2007, the race was held under JPN1, which is a G1 race in Japan but a Listed race internationally.
    She was going to enter that race as a G3 winner, having won the Queen Cup, not as a G1 winner.
    Her connections were planning for her handicap cup to be lower.
    Dance in the Mood, the winner of the self-proclaimed G1 race of 2006 Victoria Mile, had run in the 2006 CashCall Mile Invitational Stakes handicapped as a G1 winner.
    ///
    Several trainers in the U.S. complained that it was strange that Dance in the Mood entered the race as a G1 winner in 2006, while Koiuta won the same race in 2007, but was not handicapped as a G1 winner.
    In the end, on the morning of the race, her handicap was corrected to be the same as the G1 winner.
    ///
    In the race, she finished 9th.
    The JRA later wrote to Hollywood Park Racecourse to protest this issue over Koiuta’s handicap.
    Asian Winds, who won the Victoria Mile the following year in 2008, was also scheduled to run in the Cashcall Mile Invitational Stakes, so there were prior discussions between JRA and Hollywood Park Racecourse regarding handicapping.
    (In the end, Asian Winds did not run.)
  • Since there were no other strong candidates, she was awarded the JRA Award for Best Older Filly or Mare in 2007.
    Her vote count was 113, but the “None of the Choices” count was 101.
