    But he showed the fastest finishing-kick of any of the other horses and finished 5th.

His records and Episodes

  • He set the records for the most runs in the same grade-races, the most consecutive runs in the same grade-races, the most runs in the same G1 races, and the most consecutive runs in the same G1 races.
    (Eight consecutive runs in Hanshin Daishoten (G2) and Tenno Sho (spring) (G1))
  • He is the only horse that ran with both Deep Impact and Orfevre.
  • He is the last El Condor Pasa’s crop registered with JRA as a racehorse.
  • He is the second 10-year-old to win a flat grade-race, following Asaka Defeat.
    Asaka Defeat won a grade-race in February, and Tokai Trick won in December, making Tokai Trick the oldest.
  • The total distance he has run in the races is 175.1km.
  • He was very much loved by the racing fans.
    His fans called him such as “トリックじいさん (Old Trick, Trick Grandpa)” and his ageless running cheered them up.
  • It was announced that he would be a lead horse at Kyoto Racecourse after his retirement.
    Many fans dreamed of seeing him lead younger horses onto the track at Kyoto Racecourse for Tenno Sho (spring).
    But just as he was beginning to be trained as a lead horse, he developed a shattered fracture of the right first phalanx and had to be euthanized.
    When a horse in JRA’s facilities died, it was not customary to announce the death, but he was a very fancied horse, so after consulting with his owner his death was announced.
    At the Kyoto Racecourse, a flower donation table was set up, and many fans offered flowers, carrots, apples, etc. and prayed for him.
