He was caught cross-running and crashed into the inner railing.

Evaluation of Him
- He is sometimes referred to as the weakest Derby horse.
Compared to the other weakest Derby horses mentioned, his racing results are not so bad.
However, he was often compared to Fuji Kiseki and Dance Partner, who are the same age.
As mentioned above, Fuji Kiseki was said to be a Triple Crown horse if he had not been injured.
A week before he won the Derby, Dance Partner won the Oaks on the same track conditions in a faster time than he did.
He was ridiculed as a slower Derby horse than the Oaks horse because, unlike today, it was common that fillies were weaker than colts.
Moreover, he was placed lower in the Kikuka Sho than Dance Partner, who would have been in poor condition coming back from France.
