  • Seeking the Dia had good results in grass races for a while after his debut.
    He won the Arlington Cup and New Zealand Trophy.
  • His dam, Seeking the Pearl, was a winner of the NHK Mile Cup, and he was expected to be a winner in the NHK Mile Cup, but he finished 7th, beaten by King Kamehameha.
  • He then went to Europe, but without good results.
    When he came back, he switched to dirt horses.
  • In the Hyogo Gold Trophy, he won over Nobo Jack and Nobo True.
  • In the Kawasaki Kinen (2005), he lost to Time Paradox by a neck.
  • In the Japan Cup Dirt (2005), he lost to Kane Hekili by a nose.
  • In the Kawasaki Kinen (2006), he lost to Adjudi Mitsuo by a neck.

His racing results

  • He ran 20 G1 races and came in 2nd nine times, but failed to come in 1st.
    His nine second-place finishes in G1 races were naturally the most in history at the time.
    His record was later broken when Furioso finished second in G1 races 11 times.
    However, Furioso has won six G1 races, so Seeking the Dia’s record has not been broken among horses who have not won a G1 race.
  • He is called the Silver Collector.
    Others, such as Stay Gold, Meisho Doto, Buena Vista, Furioso and Verxina, are also called the Silver Collector, but they have won more than one G1 race.
    Therefore, many people claim that Seeking the Dia is the true Silver Collector.

As a sire

  • He was a stallion for only one year in Japan, then went to Hill ‘n’ Dale Farm in the US.
    In the past, Hill ‘n’ Dale Farm had uploaded Seeking the Dia promotional video on their official website, and it was quietly talked about.
    Nicovideo
    The content of the video was strange and funny.
    The content of the video was probably unauthorized use of Japanese TV programs, editing as if Seeking the Diamond was the great Japanese dirt champion and the successor to Storm Cat, and too much incoherent Japanese translation on the video.
  • He did not do well as a stallion in Japan and the U.S., but he was a successful stallion in Chile.
    Many of his crops have been successful in Chile, including Rio Allipen, who won the Clásico El Derby in Chile.
  • Quasar, who was active in India, is also by him.
