  • In the Oka Sho, the first classic race, she was 1st favorite.
    She made a pace in the front group.

    She took the lead in the home stretch and won by a neck.
    Her jockey Yutaka Take said “I was able to run as I expected”.
    (2nd : Yukino Bijin, 3rd : Max Jolly)
  • In the Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks), she overtook Yukino Bijin in the home stretch and won by 1+3/4 lengths.
    The second and third horses were the same as the Oka Sho.
    (2nd : Yukino Bijin, 3rd : Max Jolly)
    She became a Double Crown filly.
  • If she won the Yushun Himba, her connections were planning to run her to the Prix Vermeille in France.
    But the plan was canceled because she had muscle pain.
    And because the farrier made a mistake, she couldn’t train too hard.
    She couldn’t run in the trial race and went to the Queen Elizabeth II Cup directly.
  • Before the Queen Elizabeth II Cup, she was expected to become a Triple Crown filly.
    But she was 2nd favorite because her adjustment of condition was delayed and Star Ballerina had a good win.
    In the race, she couldn’t keep up with Hokuto Vega and North Flight.
    She couldn’t become a Triple Crown filly.

    The phrase that the TV broadcaster said
    “ベガはベガでもホクトベガです!” and
    ” 東の一等星ホクトベガ、輝いたのは北斗のベガです! ” went viral.

    (Forcibly translating the phrase into English would be
    “Vega is Vega, but Hokuto Vega! (It’s Vega, but it’s Hokuto Vega!)” and
    “First magnitude star of east, The shining one is Vega of Hokuto!”.)

    (Hokuto means North Dipper.)
  • After that she couldn’t win and retired.
