  • First, I’ ll tell you what’s fascinating about him.
  • People who report on his races will say similar things right after the race starts.
    “Twin Turbo got a good start and took the lead!”
    “Twin Turbo is gaining more and more distance!”
    “The proud Twin Turbo’s engine roars!”
  • And when he approaches near the last corner, they say something like this
    “Twin Turbo stalling!”
    “Twin Turbo reverse thrust! backfire!”
    “Twin Turbo is the end!”
  • Horse racing fans enjoyed his “様式美 Yoshiki Bi” and “お約束 Oyakusoku”.
    The literal translation of “Yoshiki Bi” is “stylistic beauty”, “beauty of style” or “beauty of form”.
    The literal translation of “Oyakusoku” is “promise”.
    In Japanese conversation, these words are often used to mean “template”, “formula”, “a given”, “be expected”, “as usual”, “as always” or “as planned”, although the formal meaning is slightly different.
    For Example
    ネイマールのダイブは様式美だ-
    -Neymar’s dive is “Yoshiki Bi”.
    ウサイン・ボルトの勝利ポーズであるライトニング・ボルトはお約束だ-
    -Usain Bolt’s victory pose, Lightning Bolt, is “Oyakusoku”.
  • He was a much loved horse with many fans because of his racing style.
    Just as he ran, the crowd erupted in laughter.
