  • In the Hochi Hai Yayoi Sho, he was the 2nd favorite.
    He overtook Air Spinel in the homestretch and then Leontes just before the finish line to win by a neck.
    He broke the race record.
  • In the Satsuki Sho, he showed great finishing kicks but could not catch up to Dee Majesty and finished 2nd.
  • In the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby), he was the 3rd favorite.
    He passed Air Spinel to take the lead.
    Satono Diamond then came alongside Makahiki and they raced to the finish line, but it was Makahiki who won.
    Makahiki stood at the top of a generation that was considered a high-level generation, with many rising stars such as Air Spinel, Leontes, Satono Diamond, and Dee Majesty.
  • Even before the Derby, his connections had suggested that he might run in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in the second half of his 3-year-old season, but they officially announced it after the Derby.
  • In the Prix Niel, he won by a neck.
  • In the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, he couldn’t do much of anything and ended up in 14th place.
    His starting gate number and the interval from the previous race were cited as reasons for his loss, but even if he had been in perfect condition, it would have been difficult for him to win.
  • In 2017 he finished 3rd in the Kyoto Kinen, 4th in the Osaka Hai and Japan Cup, but did not win.
  • From 2018 to 2020, he could not win a race and sometimes finished 10th or lower.
    Around 2020, he was sometimes referred to such as “a weak Derby horse” or “a horse that was finished by going to France.”
    Because he finished below Oju Chosan in the 2018 Arima Kinen, he was sometimes mocked as a “Derby horse who lost a flat race to a steeplechase horse.”
  • In the Kyoto Daishoten (2021), he was the 9th favorite.
    Kiseki took the lead in the final stretch and raced with Aristoteles.
    Just when it appeared that Aristoteles had won the race, Makahiki overtook them to finish 1st.
    It was his first win in five years since the Prix Niel.
    It was the longest interval between wins in history for a horse that won a G1 race.
    It was a very exciting race for the fans as not only Makahiki but also Kiseki and Aristotle were sluggish horses.
  • In the Japan Cup (2021), he was the 12nd favorite and finished 14th.
    The race featured four Derby horses, Makahiki, Wagnerian, Contrail, and Shahryar.
    It was also consequently the last race for Wagnerian.
  • In 2022, he remained active.
    By this time, horse racing fans were more concerned about him seriously than mocking him, and they were increasingly voicing their desire for him to retire soon.
    The fact that Wagnerian, a Derby horse two years younger than him and owned by the same owner and in the same stable, failed to become a stallion and died in active racing was a reason for worry about him.
  • In October 2022 it was announced that he would retire and become a stallion the following year.
