Takarazuka Kinen (G1) 2 8
  • He had a very violent temper.
    He lost his first five races in a row, and then broke a bone, which caused him to take a long break.
    During that time, he was castrated to remedy his temperament difficulties.
    He returned to racing at the age of three, but in his first race back, he shook off a jockey.
    From then on he ran many races and learned to race.
  • Before the St.Lite Kinen, Mihono Bourbon, the same age as him and the same stable, had already won the Double Crown.
    Mihono Bourbon was expected to win the Triple Crown.
    Legacy World and Mihono Bourbon’s trainer, Tameo Toyama, thought that the barrier to achieving the Triple Crown was Rice Shower, who finished 2nd in the Derby.
    Toyama put Mihono Bourbon’s main jockey on Legacy World, and had him run in the St. Lite Kinen where Rice Shower would be running.
    It was to determine the current capabilities of Rice Shower.
    ///
    In the race, he ran to the front of the pack.
    He was once passed by Rice Shower in the home stretch, but he took the lead again just before the finish-line.
    It was his first grade-race win.
    But Toyama was terrified because he thought Rice Shower was getting stronger than he imagined.
    Later, Toyama’s fears would come true, but it had little to do with Legacy World.
  • He couldn’t run in the classic races and Tenno Sho because he was a gelding.
  • In the Japan Cup (1993), he was 6th favorite.
    The foreign horses were the 1st to 3rd favorite due to the absence of the leading Japanese horses.
    ( Kotashaan (USA): 1st favorite, White Muzzle (UK): 2nd,
    Star of Cozzene (USA): 3rd, Winning Ticket (JPN): 4th )
    Legacy World ran second from the front.
    He took the lead early in the home stretch.
    Kotashaan was coming up fast.
    But Kotashaan’s jockey, Kent Desormeaux, mistook the finish line.
    Legacy World won by 1+1/4 lengths.
    It was his first G1 win.
    Many say that even without Kent’s mistake, Legacy World would have won.
    Kent’s mistake led to the removal of the pole set up 100 meters before the finish-line.

Episode

  • He was the first gelding to win a G1 race in JRA.
  • He retired and went back to the farm.
    There he became very friendly with a pony named Puppy.
    But after Puppy died due to old age, he became very mentally unstable.
    Therefore, the farm brought in a new pony for him.
    He got along well with his new partner, Honey, and became mentally stable.
    He and Honey sleep in the same room and graze together.
    The people at the farm say it’s hard to keep them apart because they get lonely and fussy.
    Here’s a link to see how they did. (  1    2  )
