- Zenno Rob Roy was a highly rated horse even before his debut.
His jockey Norihiro Yokoyama said “If I can’ t win with this horse, I can’ t win the Derby for the time being”.
But he lost to Neo Universe in the Tokyo Yushun (Derby).
- After that, he continued to lose G1 races.
- In the Tenno Sho (Autumn 2004), his jockey was decided to Olivier Peslier.
He passed about 8 horses in the home stretch and won.
It was his first G1 win.
Peslier decided to ride him in the Japan Cup (2004) and Arima Kinen (2004).
- In the Japan Cup (2004), he was the 1st favorite.
He won the race in the same way as the previous race.
- In the Arima Kinen (2004), Tap Dance City made a pace as usual.
Zenno Rob Roy followed Tap Dance City and passed him in the home stretch.
He finished in 1st place.
He broke the Japanese record time.
- He awarded “the Autumn Old Horse Triple Crown” by winning the Tenno Sho, Japan Cup and Arima Kinen in 2004.
He and T.M. Opera O are the only horses to win the award.
And he also awarded the JRA Award for Best Older Male Horse (2004) and Japanese Horse of the Year (2004).
Surprisingly, he was the first horse to win the Japanese Horse of the Year as a crop of Sunday Silence.
- After that Peslier didn’t ride him.
Not sure if it was because of that, but he never won again.
However, he has done many good runs since then.
When he went to the UK, he finished 2nd by a neck to the 1st place finisher, Electrocutionist.
As a sire
- He is a sire such as Saint Emilion and Magnifica.
There is 16 horses to win a grade-race in his crops.
But it is hard to say that he was a great success as a stallion.
