  • Before the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby), he’d run only dirt races, winning all four of them.
  • In the Tokyo Yushun, it was his first race on turf.
    He was 3rd favorite after his dominant performance in dirt races, but finished last.
    After that, he returned to the dirt field and aimed for the Japan Dirt Derby.
  • In the Japan Dirt Derby, he was by far the most favorite.
    He won convincingly by 3+1/2 lengths over Smart Falcon in 2nd place.
  • He was beaten by Kane Hekili and Vermilion several times after that.
  • In the February Stakes (2009), he was 6th favorite.
    Kane Hekili was 1st favorite and Vermilion was 2nd favorite.
    In the Home Stretch, Espoir City took the lead.
    Success Brocken, Casino Drive and Kane Hekili passed Espoir City.
    They competed fiercely.
    Success Broken won the competition.
  • In the Tokyo Daishoten (2009), he won defeating Vermilion.

After his retirement

  • He couldn’t become a stallion.
    He was going to work as a ride horse at Tokyo Racecourse.
    He started working as a lead horse in 2012.
  • He has set up a facebook account to keep up with news about Tokyo Racecourse. (Account1   /    Account2)
  • In 2013, he was named “Special Promotions Director for the 80th Derby.”
    He put on a suit and went around greeting people. (Google images Success Broken Suit)
    He made a prediction for the Derby. (Youtube)
    (He chose Hiraboku Deep, but it was Kizuna who actually became the Derby horse.)
  • Here he is demonstrating flying a hurdle.

  • He’s been the lead horse in the February Stakes nearly every year.
    His and his trainer’s next goal was to work as the lead horse in Derby.
    But he couldn’t work with an crowd so excited to be near him.
    He had been considered incapable of working as a lead horse on the turf track so close to the crowd.
    ///
    In 2020, a turning point came for him.
    Due to COVID-19, races, including the Derby, would be held without the crowd.
    The crew at Tokyo Racecourse saw this as an opportunity and pushed Success Brocken to be the lead horse in the Derby.
    He and Meiner Ho O worked well together as the lead horses in the Derby at the Tokyo Racecourse with no crowds.
