Racing News

Two German contenders in this year’s Grade 1 Japan Cup – Iquitos and Guignol – arrived in Japan safely on Tuesday night. Upon arriving at Narita Airport, the duo were transported to the Quarantine Stable at the JRA Horseracing School in Shiroi, Chiba Prefecture, completing a 20-hour trip for Iquitos and a 22-hour trip for Guignol from their home stables.

Caulfield Cup winner Boom Time arrived early Tuesday and Ireland-trained Idaho is scheduled to arrive on Thursday afternoon.

“The horse looks a bit tired from the trip, but I’m not too worried about it,” said Janina Reese, assistant trainer for Iquitos. “As for preparation, the trainer has left it up to us who know the most about Iquitos. We’ll monitor the horse’s condition and decide on his training menu.”

“He seems to be in good condition,” said Michael Cadeddu, assistant trainer for Guignol. “I have not received any instructions from the trainer. We’ll keep an eye on the horse’s condition and decide what to do from there.”
The 37th running of the Japan Cup will be held on Nov. 26 at Tokyo Racecourse over 2,400 meters.

Boom Time arrives to Japan ahead of Japan Cup (G1)15 Nov 11:18 am

Grade 1 Japan Cup contender and this year’s Caulfield Cup winner Boom Time arrived in Japan safely on Tuesday morning. The 6-year-old horse trained by David Hayes was then transported to the Quarantine Stable at the JRA Horseracing School in Shiroi, Chiba Prefecture, completing a 14-hour trip from his home stable in Australia.

Boom Time is the first of four Japan Cup foreign contenders to arrive in Japan, with the two German-trained challengers – Guignol and Iquitos – scheduled to arrive later on Tuesday and the Ireland-trained Idaho to land on Thursday afternoon.

“He travelled well and seems to be in the same condition as he was back home,” assistant trainer Gary Fennessy said. “The trainer has instructed me to give him the same training menu as back home on the dirt course. We plan to do some fast work here at the Horseracing School on Friday or Saturday.”
The 37th running of the Japan Cup will be held on Nov. 26 at Tokyo Racecourse over 2,400 meters.

Mile Championship (G1) - Preview14 Nov 7:10 pm

Once again, the main event of the week will be staged at Kyoto Racecourse, just a week before the international gala Japan Cup. This Sunday the spotlight is on speed with the miler heavyweights out in force for the Grade 1 Mile Championship. Open to 3-year-olds and up, the second big mile event of the year after the Yasuda Kinen carries a first prize of 103 million yen. Twenty-two horses have been nominated and 18 will make the cut for the 34th running of the Mile Championship.

The race is held over the Kyoto outer course, also the scene for such graded stakes events as the Kyoto Kimpai and the Shinzan Kinen. The race starts in the backstretch in the pocket behind the second turn. There are over 700 meters of straight track until the first bend, leaving ample room for maneuvering but the pace is usually heated from the start. The track climbs until the first bend, then dips going into the stretch of some 400 meters.

Danon Shark holds the race record time of 1 minute, 31.5 seconds, set in 2014.
The Mile Championship is the 11th race on Sunday at Kyoto. Post time is 15:40 local time. Here’s a look at some of the runners.

Air Spinel: A 4-year-old son of King Kamehameha, Air Spinel is gunning for his first Grade 1 win, and although the Mile Championship represents only his second top-level bid at the distance competing against older horses, recent form suggests he may be ready to make the winner’s circle at long last. Air Spinel made the board but missed the money in the first two 3-year-old Classics, with fourth-place finishes in both the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas) and the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby), then, in the longest of the three races, he ran third in the Kikuka Sho (Japanese St. Leger). However, after being dropped back in distance to the mile for most of his starts this year, he has made the top three spots in four of five starts at the distance. He also ran fifth in the hotly contested finish of the Yasuda Kinen, when the top five each crossed the line a neck behind the horse ahead. In that race, Air Spinel had found himself behind a wall until the very last furlong. With more room to move, things could have easily gone in his favor. Last out, Air Spinel won his second Grade 3 of the year when he nabbed the Fuji Stakes at Tokyo on Oct. 21. His other win was the Kyoto Kimpai, run over the same conditions as the Mile Championship. He has won the Daily Hai Nisai Stakes, also a mile at Kyoto. Expected to be in the saddle is Yutaka Take, who has ridden all but one of Air Spinel’s starts. It should also be noted that Take helped guide two others who had long struggled to capture a Grade 1 race to eventual victory in the Mile Championship – Sadamu Patek in 2012 and Tosen Ra in 2013. It’s a relatively tight rotation from the Fuji Stakes, but improvement is expected.

Isla Bonita: Three years ago, Isla Bonita aced the Satsuki Sho, lost the Derby by 3/4 length to One and Only, and later that year passed on the Kikuka Sho to take on the Tenno Sho (Autumn), where he ran third. He won the race before that, the Grade 2 Asahi Hai St. Lite Kinen and that was the last race he’d won until this April. Though the winner’s circle had eluded him, the 6-year-old son of Fuji Kiseki hadn’t been far off. He had made the money in Grade 1 competition both last year and the year before that, including a second to Mikki Isle in the Mile Championship last year and a third the year before. Most recently, he ran second to Air Spinel in the Fuji Stakes, but was coming off a near 5-month layoff compared to the latter’s spell of 2 months. His eighth-place finish in the Yasuda Kinen, 0.5 seconds off the winner, followed a win of the Grade 2 Milers Cup. In the Yasuda Kinen, Isla Bonita was unable to get a clear run and, kept waiting on the inside, the big-striding horse was unable to gain momentum once clear. If Isla Bonita can manage a win on Sunday, it would be his first win of a Grade 1 in nearly three years and seven months. He’ll be partnered with Christophe Lemaire, who has partnered Isla Bonita for one win and four seconds over his last seven starts. Considering that he was back from a layoff in the Fuji Stakes, running on a sloppy track under 58kg, 1kg less than Air Spinel and 1kg less than he’ll carry on Sunday, Isla Bonita may well be able to turn the tables at Kyoto.

Red Falx: With back-to-back victories in the Sprinters Stakes and only having had one race recently at anything longer than 1,400 meters since his career second start four years ago, Red Falx does not seem a likely pick for the Mile Championship. That one recent race at a longer distance, however, was this year’s Yasuda Kinen, and the 6-year-old by Swept Overboard finished third just 0.1 seconds behind winner Satono Aladdin. It’s an unusual choice to follow up a Sprinters Stakes win with the Mile Championship and the last horse that did so successfully was Durandal in 2003. If Red Falx can win the Mile Championship, he’ll be the first horse without a previous mile win to do since Tosen Ra four years ago and only the fifth horse in the race’s 34 runnings. The rotation is doable and his movement in work seems to been good. It will, however, be the first time for the Miho-based Red Falx to race at Kyoto.

Satono Aladdin: Fifth in last year’s Mile Championship, fourth the year before that, the 6-year-old Deep Impact-sired Satono Aladdin is set to take on the Kyoto top-level mile for his third time. Fourth in last year’s Yasuda Kinen, he captured the spring Grade 1 mile event this year for his first top-level win and would secure top miler of the year if he could manage a win on Sunday. Doubts are expected to push his popularity down, however, as the big-striding horse likes more room to move than Kyoto tends to offer compared to Tokyo. Other than his two Mile Championship bids, Satono Aladdin has had only one other start at Kyoto, the Grade 2 Swan Stakes over 1,400 meters, which he won. Following the Yasuda Kinen, Satono Aladdin returned in the fall to run second despite an unfavorable trip in the Grade 2 Mainichi Okan at Tokyo, but then finished last of 18 over a sloppy track in the Tenno Sho (Autumn), a result that will also lose him votes at the betting windows. It’s one that should be disregarded unless the track is heavy at Kyoto. Satono Aladdin will also be running under a kilogram less than any of his three starts this year. And, if he can get a position that allows him running room, three may be the charm for this Mile Championship veteran, as it was for Company in 2009 and Danon Shark in 2014.

* * *
Among other candidates…

Leading the pack of 3-year-olds aiming to become the first of that age group to capture the Mile Championship in 17 years is Sungrazer, by Deep Impact. In his 15 starts thus far, he has failed to make the money only twice and the board only once. His five wins have come predominately at 1,400 meters, but he has won at half a furlong more as well as 1,800 meters. His last outing, the Grade 2 Swan Stakes, was his best thus far and his first graded stakes win. In that race, he beat Sprinters Stakes runnerup Let’s Go Donki over the line by nearly two lengths. It’ll be a step up in class but he has a forgiving 56kg and Yuichi Fukunaga in the saddle for support. Filly Reine Minoruby Daiwa Major will have 2kg less than that and it will be her first return to the distance since her winning run in the Oka Sho. Also not to forget is Persian Knight, by Harbinger, who will be piloted by Mirco Demuro. The colt is three for eight with two seconds and a third. Last out, he came back from five months off to run fifth in the Fuji Stakes. He will return sharper to Kyoto, where he finished third in the Grade 3 Shinzan Kinen over 1,600 meters early this year.
Others to watch are the Miho-based Maltese Apogee, a 5-year-old by Goshawk Ken that has never failed to take the lead in all of his 23 career starts and he has held his ground for eight wins, one second and three thirds, including three wins at the Grade 3 level and two wins and a third at the mile. It will, however, be his first time at Kyoto. Kluger, a hefty 5-year-old by King Kamehameha, returned after six months off to run third in the Fuji Stakes and last spring he captured the Grade 2 Milers Cup at Kyoto. And, a word of caution not to ignore 5-year-old Grand Silk, who has made the top three spots consistently over the mile at the Grade 2 and 3 levels. It will be the son of Stay Gold’s first time at Kyoto.

Three-Year-Old Mozu Katchan Claims Queen Elizabeth13 Nov 11:59 am

Fifth pick Mozu Katchan claimed her well-deserved first G1 victory in this year’s Queen Elizabeth II Cup after few misses in her fillies’ Triple earlier in the season. Beating her seniors in this event, she becomes the first three-year-old in four years and the eighth overall to win the distaff G1 title. The Harbinger filly, with just one start as a two-year-old, broke her maiden in her third career starts and notched three wins in a row including her first grade-race victory in the Flora Stakes. She was 1-/3/4-second to Soul Stirring in her following Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks) then, coming off a seventh in the Rose Stakes, finished third in the Shuka Sho despite losing a shoe. Trainer Ippo Sameshima celebrated his first G1 victory and 24th grade-race title after opening his yard in 2000. Jockey Mirco Demuro accomplished a repeat victory after winning this race last year with Queens Ring while claiming his 23rd JRA-G1 title—his latest being the Kikuka Sho with Kiseki.

Mozu Katchan broke smoothly out of the gate and immediately settled nicely along the rails inside race favorite Vivlos in fifth position. Still in hand going downhill towards the fourth corner, jockey Mirco Demuro nudged the three-year-old forward to secure a clear path as the field started to close up from behind, and the filly responded with increasing speed from the 200-meter pole in pursuit of Crocosmia who found another gear after inheriting the lead from Queen’s Milagro while holding off a fast closing Mikki Queen, finally pinning Crocosmia in the last strides for a neck victory and first G1 title against older fillies and mares.

“I’m so happy to have won this title again this year. Mozu Katchan is such an honest and talented filly and it was such a shame that she’d lost a shoe last time out in the Shuka Sho, so I’m glad that we were able to prove her ability in this race. We had a good draw and everything went as planned. She was so strong nearing the finish and pinning the leader for the win,” commented winning jockey Mirco Demuro

Crocosmia shot out of the gate and eased to second as Queen’s Milagro immediately disputed for the lead and made the pace. Stalking the pace in second, about 2-1/2 lengths from the leader and five lengths in front of her next rival Maximum de Paris, Crocosmia had plenty in the tank as she inherited the lead and took command at the head of the stretch then maintained a clear lead for most of the stretch before outrun by the winner by a neck in the last strides.

Mikki Queen was unhurried early and rated well behind the pace in the latter half of the field along the backstretch. Making headway along the outside and wide entering the stretch, the Deep Impact mare exerted a powerful late run to sweep past her rivals and loomed to contention in the last 100 meters to almost catching all but finishing a neck and a head in third.

Race favorite Vivlos broke sharply out of the gate under Christophe Lemaire and rated nicely just behind the pace and outside a rival in fourth position. Entering the stretch a few horses back as the race began in earnest, the Deep Impact filly was unable to quicken in the final stages to threaten the leaders while remaining in contention for fifth.
