Tenno Sho (spring) (G1) 6 10   
  • She did not get to run in any of the classic spring races.
    She had a record of three wins in six starts since her debut, but she was entered in the Queen Elizabeth II Cup.
  • In the Queen Elizabeth II Cup, she was 17th favorite.
    She started to make a move on the backstretch and moved to second place while running on the outside of the pack from the third corner to the fourth corner.
    She did not slow down and won by 3+1/2 lengths over the 2nd place finisher.
    It was her first G1 win.
  • She then went on to win the Naruo Kinen and finish 2nd in the Hanshin Daishoten by 1/2 lengths to the 1st place finisher, Mejiro Palmer.
  • Her older sister, Riesengross, was the 1982 Oka Sho winner, and her other sister, Martha Red, was the 1983 Best Two-Year-Old Filly.
    Takeno Velvet was also expected to be a broodmare, but her offspring did not flourish.
