  • In the Wasurenagusa Sho, she won by 3 lengths.
    She won the right to run in the Oaks.
  • In the Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks), she was surprisingly the 1st favorite, partly due to the absence of Oka Sho winner Gran Alegria.

    She broke Gentildonna’s race record by 0.8 seconds.
    It was her first G1 win.

  • In the Dubai Sheema Classic (2021), she lost to Mishriff and Chrono Genesis.
  • In the Queen Elizabeth II Cup (2021, Hong Kong), she overtook Daring Tact in the home stretch, and even Glory Vase couldn’t catch up.
    She won for the first time since the Oaks.
    The fourth place went to Kiseki, and Japanese horses dominated the first through fourth places.
  • In the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf, she overtook the lead horse at the finish line and finished in 1st place.
    It was the first time in history that a Japanese-trained horse and a Japanese jockey had won the Breeders’ Cup.

  • She became the first Japanese horse to win three foreign G1 races in a year.
