Episode

  • His owner, Yuichi Odagiri, is famous for giving his horses unusual and strange names.
    His name, Orewa Matteruze, is derived from a Japanese movie.
    (If you’re familiar with the Japanese language, you’ll know that’s not a name you’d normally give a horse.)
    The English translation of Orewa Matteruze (俺は待ってるぜ) is colloquially known as “I’m waiting!
    According to the owner, it can also be read as “Ore Hamatteruze (俺、嵌まってるぜ)” .
    The English translation of Ore Hamatteruze (俺、嵌まってるぜ) is “I’m getting hooked”.
  • He had a old-sister named Egao o Misete (エガオヲミセテ).
    ///
    (Since 1997, the JRA has conditionally allowed the letter “ヲ” to be used in names.
    The owner took notice of this and gave her a name that included the letter “ヲ”.
    She was the first horse in Japan to have a name with the letter “ヲ” in it.)
    ///
    The English translation of Egao o Misete (エガオヲミセテ) is colloquially known as “Smile for me!
    She was also loved by racing fans as a horse with a strange name.
    But she burned to death in a fire while on active duty.
    Her death was very sad for the racing community.
    The day she died was five days after Orewa Matteruze was born.

As a sire

  • He wasn’t expected to be much of a stallion, and he wasn’t really a success.
  • Hana’s Goal is representative crop.
    She won the Tulip Sho (G3) defeating Joie de Vivre, the two-year-old queen, and Gentildonna, the future Triple Crown filly.
    She also won the All Aged Stakes, a G1 race in Australia.
