February Stakes (G1) 7 9   
  • He won four straight grade races: the Nagoya Yushun, Grand Chariot Cup, Unicorn Stakes, and Super Dirt Derby.
    At the time, Unicorn Stakes, Super Dirt Derby, and Derby Grand Prix were known as the Triple Crown of Dirt.
  • He went to Morioka to run in the Derby Grand Prix for the Triple Crown.
    However, due to heavy snowfall on the race day, the race was postponed until three weeks later.
    He was in perfect physical condition on race day, but had no luck.
    In addition, his main jockey, Katsumi Minai, was scheduled to have an operation after the race to remove a bolt that was implanted in his body.
    Because the operation was scheduled on the same day as the postponed race, Katsumi Minai was unable to ride him.
  • In the Derby Grand Prix, he was by far the most favorite.
    Yutaka Take rode him.
    He chased after Narita Homare, who had taken the lead in the home stretch, but could not catch him.
  • In 1999, he failed to win a single race because he was unable to make satisfactory adjustments due to fetlock and knee problems, and also because his main jockey, Katsumi Minai, retired.
  • In the February Stakes, he was 4th favorite.
    He passed Fast Friend, Gold Tiara, Meisei Opera and others in the home stretch and finished in 1st place.
    It was his first G1 win.
    It was Olivier Peslier’s first G1 victory in Japan.
    He gave a G1 victory to his trainer, Yoshimi Kudo, who is retiring at the end of February.
    His former main jockey, Katsumi Minai, took over Yoshimi Kudo’s stable.
  • In the Japan Cup Dirt, he was 4th favorite.
    He took the lead early and won by 3+1/2 lengths.
    He became the first Japan Cup Dirt champion.
