  • Mejiro Bright is a Mejiro Ryan’s representative crop along with Mejiro Dober of the same age.
  • He won his debut race.
    But the race was very low level.
    It was more than 10 seconds later than the race time under the same conditions on the same day. (About 15 seconds later than Japanese records at the time.)
    The crowd heckled, “Are you walking?”
