  • OPEC Horse won the Derby in 1980.
    He’s lost 32 in a row since then.
  • Winner’s Circle won the Derby in 1989 and the JRA Award for Best Three-Year-Old Colt (1989).
    He was injured and retired with a record of three wins in eleven starts.
    The only turf race he ever won was the Derby.
  • Tayasu Tsuyoshi won the Derby in 1995.
    He ran three races after the Derby and retired because of his injuries.
    Even though the track conditions were the same for the Oaks and the Derby that year, his time in the Derby was 0.6 seconds slower than the time of Dance Partner, who won the Oaks, so some people made fun of him as a weaker Derby horse than the Oaks horse.
  • Agnes Flight won the Derby in 2000.
    He won a fierce battle with Air Shakur, giving Jockey Kawachi his first Derby.
    He didn’t win after that.
    It’s often said he’s a horse to be remembered rather than recorded.
  • Other names that come up are Logi Universe and Makahiki.
