- When he was two years old, he was temperamental and could not fully demonstrate his abilities.
That’s why he was castrated.

Biwa Hayahide and Winning Ticket had retired due to injury, the Triple Crown winner Narita Brian was absent due to an overcrowded schedule, and there were no leading Japanese horses in the race.
His half-brother, Grand Flotilla, was running in the race from the United States, so it was a showdown between brothers.
The French brothers Hernando and Johhan Quatz also ran in the race, making it a rare race with four brothers in two pairs.
Sandpit, Marvelous Crown, and Paradise Creek were fighting for the lead on the home stretch, but Sandpit was unable to keep up.
Royce and Royce caught up with those two, but soon couldn’t keep up with them.
Marvelous Crown and Paradise Creek ended up finishing side by side.
Marvelous Crown won by a nose.
It was his first G1 win.
For the second consecutive year, following last year’s Legacy World, a Japanese gelding won the Japan Cup.
