Contentment and Beauty Only, the one-two finishers of the Grade 1 Champions Mile held earlier this month at Sha Tin and the two foreign contenders in this year's Grade 1 Yasuda Kinen, arrived safely at Narita International Airport in Chiba Prefecture early Tuesday morning. The pair were then transported to the quarantine facilities at the JRA Horseracing School Quarantine Center, where they arrived at 09:40 a.m., completing about a ten-hour journey from their home base at Sha Tin.

“Drawing on last year's experience, he looks this time to be in better condition upon arrival than he had been last year,” said Sing Hon Pang, assistant trainer to John Size, of Contentment. “The trainer has instructed me to carry on training the same as we would do back home. We plan to give him a fast gallop on Friday (May 26).”

“It's his first overseas trip and he does seem a bit nervous, but after a few days I think he'll get used to things,” said Wai Kit Mo, assistant trainer to Anthony Cruz, of Beauty Only. “While we're in quarantine, the trainer gave us instructions to keep the horse nice and relaxed. While we're at the horseracing school, the plan is for him to have a fast gallop on Thursday. (May 25).”

In the Champions Mile, Contentment held off Beauty Only by a neck to clinch his first win since winning the Queen's Silver Jubilee Cup (1,400m) in February 2016. A 7-year-old gelding by Hussonet out of the Commands mare Jemison, Contentment has an overall record of 10 wins from 29 starts (with four seconds and two thirds) and will look to avenge his 12th place finish in the Yasuda Kinen last year. Trainer John Size is no stranger to JRA racing, having raced Contentment in last year's Yasuda Kinen as well as Glorious Days in the Yasuda Kinen for three consecutive years from 2012, but has yet to find the winner's circle on Japanese soil.

This will be the first trip to Japan for the 6-year-old Beauty Only, which defeated the Japanese trio of Neorealism, Logotype and Satono Aladdin to win the Grade 1 Hong Kong Mile last December. Consistency has been the key for the Holy Roman Emperor-sired gelding, with an overall record of 10 wins from 32 starts and not missing the board since finishing eighth in the Hong Kong Cup in December 2015. His trainer, Anthony Cruz, is the last Hong Kong trainer to take the Yasuda Kinen title, winning with Bullish Luck in 2006.

The Hong Kong duo will not have to challenge the overwhelming champion in Maurice this time, however, will have a testing field of Japanese local runners. Among the nominated horses for the Yasuda Kinen field are last year's winner of the race Logotype, as well as the fourth-place finisher Satono Aladdin and fifth-place Isla Bonita. Last year's Sprinters Stakes winner Red Falx, fresh off a win in the Grade 2 Keio Hai Spring Cup, is also among the nominated horses for the Yasuda Kinen.

The Yasuda Kinen will be run on Sunday, June 4 at Tokyo Racecourse, with a scheduled post time of 15:40 local time.

JAPAN DERBY 2017 - Preview 23 May 4:50 pm

After an exciting Oaks win last Sunday for the Frankel filly, Soul Stirring, attention turns to the colts this week, when Tokyo Racecourse stages one of the greatest races on the Japanese racing calendar, namely the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby), on Sunday, May 28. Nineteen 3-year-old colts have been nominated for the 84th running of the race, to be run over 2,400 meters on the turf track at Tokyo Racecourse, just outside of central Tokyo.

A race that was first run in 1932 at the Meguro Racecourse, some of Japan's greatest thoroughbreds have left their mark on the race, including seven Triple Crown winners, the latest of which was Orfevre in 2011. There are no fillies nominated this year, so it's all down to the boys, and Al Ain will be bidding to become the 24th horse to go on and win the Derby after securing the first leg of the Triple Crown, the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas).

Lead up races to this year's Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby) have included the Grade 1 Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas), Grade 2 TV Tokyo Hai Aoba Sho, Grade 1 NHK Mile Cup, Grade 2 Kyoto Shimbun Hai, and the open class Principal Stakes. The first two of those races were held in April, while the latter three were held earlier this month. Automatic entry to the Derby is given to the first four home in the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas), the first two past the post in the Aoba Sho, and the winner of the Principal Stakes. As things have turned out, the first six horses from the Satsuki Sho will take each other on – or at least have been nominated – for the Derby.

First favorites have won four times in the last 10 years, and the last to do so was Duramente in 2015, who also set a new record for the race that year, winning in a time of 2 minutes, 23.2 seconds. Deep Impact sired colts have won three times in the last decade, proving that the 2005 Derby winner is still influencing the way things have been more recently. The total purse this year is a hefty \432 million, with \200 million going to the winner. The Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby) will be Race 10 on the card on Sunday, with a post time of 15:40 local time.

Here's a look at some of the runners the huge crowd on Sunday will be cheering on:

Al Ain: The colt by Deep Impact provided jockey Kohei Matsuyama with his first Grade 1 victory in the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas), and is one of a strong hand that trainer Yasutoshi Ikee fields for the race. Of the colt, he said, “A little while ago, his times were not so quick, but his responses were good, as well as the way he moved. The intention is to get him posting faster times in the lead up to the race. While he's showed a lot of class in what he's done so far, the key will really be seeing out the 2,400 meters.” Once again, the 27-year-old Matsuyama, who has ridden in the Derby three times, is scheduled to get the ride.

Persian Knight: The Harbinger colt has never been unplaced in six starts, and he has three wins to his name. He made up good ground late in the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas), his last run, to finish second. With a lot of activity in jockeys securing rides, it looks as if Keita Tosaki will ride him this time. The horse is another from Yasutoshi Ikee's yard, and the trainer said, “He's taken a bit of time to come back to himself, and hopefully he'll be in good shape by the time of the race. Pedigree wise, I see no problem with the 2,400 meters.”

Satono Arthur: Another Deep Impact colt that cost owner Hajime Satomi a near king's ransom, the horse has already started to repay some of his heady purchase fee. He is two wins and two seconds from four starts, and he finished second to Al Ain in the Grade 3 Mainichi Hai over 1,800 meters at Hanshin in March, his latest run. A stablemate of Al Ain and Persian Knight, the trainer stated recently: “He looked a little lackluster a while ago and dull in his coat, but as we get nearer to the race, he's looking better. It'll be his first time over 2,400 meters, but I think the long straight will suit him.”

Admirable: This well bred colt by Deep Impact out of the Symboli Kris S mare, Scarlet, is seemingly on the up, and has three wins from four starts, with two of those wins coming over 2,400 meters. He won the Grade 2 TV Tokyo Hai Aoba Sho most recently, winning by 2 1/2 lengths, while being sent off as the overwhelming favorite at 1.5-1. Jockey Mirco Demuro teams up with Ritto-based trainer Hidetaka Otonashi, and the trainer said, “The horse has raced three times recently with three week intervals in between, but he adjusts every time and just keeps getting better with each race. He started slowly last time in the Aoba Sho, and I was worried, but from the third corner he started to gain momentum and finished off so well to win the race.”

Danburite: Also hailing from the stable of Hidetaka Otonashi, the colt by Rulership has been just a little unlucky, considering his three third-place finishes that accompany his one win and one second from six career starts. Derby winners come as second nature to jockey Yutaka Take, and now in the 30th year of his career, will he make it another great win aboard Danburite? The trainer stated: “He was a bit unlucky last time, taking a slight bump on the final bend, and the eventual winner getting a run on him on the inside. So, bearing those things in mind, there wasn't really much difference between him and the winner. He's had his usual break at the farm, where everything's been satisfactory with him.”

Suave Richard: An expensive buy at the 2014 Select Sale, the colt by Heart's Cry certainly seems no slouch, and has already notched up two wins and two seconds from five races so far. Connections felt his sixth-place finish in the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas) was down to him not quite handling the tight, right-handed track at Nakayama. Trainer Yasushi Shono has no Grade 1 wins to date, but Suave Richard could change all that. The trainer said, “He's had a two-week break at the farm, which has been good for him, getting rid of any tiredness. He's starting better in his races, and last time he couldn't quite finish so well going right-handed. He's switching back to Tokyo, where he won the Grade 3 Kyodo News Service Hai, and the way he won that time, left-handed at Tokyo would seem best for him.”

Rey de Oro: Trained by Kazuo Fujisawa and ridden by Christophe Lemaire, this dynamic duo were responsible for Soul Stirring's victory in the Oaks last week, and they team up again here in the Derby. The King Kamehameha colt has just had the one run this year, finishing fifth in the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas). Daisuke Tsumagari, assistant trainer, said, “He was well back in his last race, and despite a tremendous finish, the winning post came too soon. You would have to say that it was a good run, with what he showed he could do, even though he had to settle for fifth. He's had a break at the farm, and came back to the stable on May 4, and everything's been fine on his return.” With back-to-back Grade 1 wins for Lemaire in the Victoria Mile and Yushun Himba, will it be a hat trick for the French jockey making such a name for himself here in Japan?

Daiwa Cagney: Unbeaten in three races at Tokyo, the Shadai Farm-bred Daiwa Cagney was a 2 1/2 length winner of the Principal Stakes in his last start, an open class race over 2,000 meters at Tokyo early this month. Trainer Takanori Kikuzawa scored his first Grade 1 victory recently with Aerolithe in the NHK Mile Cup, and said of Daiwa Cagney: “The key to him is keeping him relaxed, and he was fine last time in the Principal Stakes, both in the preliminaries and during the race, which he won well. The worries I have are the start in front of the stands, and the fact that it's still early in his career.”

JAPAN OAKS 2017 - Race Favorite Soul Stirring Come 22 May 12:16 pm

Race favorite Soul Stirring took advantage of the firm track condition and demonstrated her winning ways in dominating the Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks). Bouncing back from a third-place finish in the Oka Sho (Japanese 1000 Guineas) in which she failed to show her best over soft goings, the 2016 Best Two-Year-Old Filly also gave jockey Christophe Lemaire one memorable victory as the French rider was able to celebrate Oaks victories in two countries—one with Soul Stirring's dam Stacelita with whom he won the 2009 Prix de Diane in France and this time, his first Oaks victory in Japan, with Stacelita's daughter. Trainer Kazuo Fujisawa, whose last G1 victory was in the Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes with Satono Ares last December, became the first JRA trainer to reach a milestone of 100 grade-race titles since the graded system was implemented in 1984 while scoring his 25th career G1 win. Christophe Lemaire, who also won the G1 Victoria Mile with Admire Lead only last week, landed his 12th career G1 title.

Soul Stirring was well positioned along the rails among the leaders behind Flawless Magic and edged closer to second position while angling slightly away from the rails after the third corner. Smooth into her stretch drive along the center lane, she assumed command before the furlong pole and drew away to a comfortable victory as Mozu Katchan, looking to have any chance from behind on her inside, failed to pin her down.

“It's such a thrill for me as I also won the Oaks back home with her mother. Soul Stirring certainly has inherited the power both from her sire (Frankel) and her dam. I was quite confident coming into this race. I wasn't sure yet about the distance as it was her first time (at 2,400m) so I wanted her in a good position which I did because she is quick out of the gate. She also has a good lasting speed so I was able to give her the go from early at the stretch and sustain our bid right up to the finish,” commented Christophe Lemaire.

Mozu Katchan saved ground in mid-division early, a few lengths behind Soul Stirring, followed that foe into the stretch and launched her bid as they overtook the tired pacesetter but was unable to keep up with the winner while well clear of the others in second. Admire Miyabi bounced back to form after struggling over the rain sodden track in the Oka Sho. Unhurried after breaking from an outside stall, jockey Mirco Demuro rated the Heart's Cry filly off the rails and outside a rival, five to six horses from the rear. Making headway approaching the last corner but still well behind as the gray filly swung wide into the lane for a clear run, Admire Miyabi came charging with great force along the uphill stretch with the fastest finish over the last three furlongs and continued to overtake her rivals while unable to threaten the leaders after having to make much ground.

Other Horses:
4th: (7) Deirdre―saved ground 4th from rear, launched bid on the inside, passed by Admire Miyabi before wire
5th: (14) Lys Gracieux―sat 3-wide in mid-group, checked passing 400m marker, quickened in last 300m
6th: (3) Flawless Magic―set pace, outrun by winner before 200m marker, held well but outrun in last 100m
7th: (12) Black Onyx―traveled around 5th outside winner, ran gamely until 200m marker, weakened thereafter
8th: (18) Manarola―raced 2nd or 3rd from rear, turned wide and showed effort, was too late
9th: (10) Black's Beach―hugged rails in mid-division, boxed at early stretch, accelerated in last 200m
10th: (4) Miss Panthere―chased leader outside winner, sustained bid until 200m marker
11th: (17) Caribbean Gold―ran behind winner, met traffic passing 400m marker, quickened thereafter
12th: (5) Mauve Sapphire―sat in mid-pack, found little room 300m out, lacked needed kick
13th: (13) Reine Minoru―settled 3-wide in mid-group, showed brief effort until 200m marker
14th: (6) Hello Unicorn―trailed in rear, passed tired rivals at stretch
15th: (11) Red Cordis―was off slow, positioned 2nd or 3rd from rear, failed to respond at inner stretch
16th: (8) Ho O Perfume―traveled 4-wide in mid-division, showed little at stretch
17th: (9) Dipavamsa―sat toward rear, no impression at stretch, unable to reach contention
18th: (15) Yamakatsu Grace―stalked leaders in 3rd, gradually fell back after wide trip

JAPAN OAKS 2017 - Preview 17 May 12:43 pm

Tokyo Racecourse hosts the second jewel in the fillies' triple crown, the Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks), on Sunday, May 21, with a heady first-place prize of 100 million yen. Twenty-three of Japan's top 3-year-old fillies have been nominated for the race and 18 of them will go to the gate for the 78th running of the classic.

Reine Minoru, winner of the Oka Sho (Japanese 1000 Guineas), seeks to claim her second victory for the crown, a feat only 13 fillies have done in the past. Lys Gracieux, runnerup in both the Grade 1 Hanshin Juvenile Fillies and the Oka Sho, is ripe for revenge, as is Soul Stirring, who failed to come up a winner for the first time in her career last out in the Oka Sho.

The Oaks is run over 2,400 meters of turf, a distance new to many of the runners and one shared by the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby) and the Japan Cup at the same venue. The Tokyo course is known for its long homestretch of just under 530 meters and for the hill that starts 400 meters to the finish line, rises 2 meters over the next furlong and tests runners to the utmost.

The favorite has won the Oaks three times over the past 10 runnings, run second three times and third once. The race does tend to favor the top five choices, though upsets are not unknown. Ninth pick Meisho Mambo surprised when she won in 2013 and a double-digit underdog, 13th pick F T Maia ran second to Tall Poppy in 2008.

All runners carry a set weight of 55 kg. The Oaks is the 11th race on the Sunday card of 12 at Tokyo Racecourse. Post time is 15:40 local time.

Following is a look at the expected top picks.

Soul Stirring: Hanshin Juvenile Fillies champion Soul Stirring, a daughter of Frankel, suffered the first loss of her career last out, when she finished third in the Oka Sho. This filly's big stride was hampered by the slow track, although she was a mere 0.1 seconds off of the winner. Lys Gracieux and Reine Minoru, both seen as top rivals this Sunday, beat Soul Stirring in the Oka Sho. This filly is definitely no washup and she has proven herself at Tokyo, namely a win of the 1,800-meter open-class Ivy Stakes last October. She topped runnerup Persian Knight by nearly 2 lengths and that colt went on to finish second in the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas). It will be Soul Stirring's first time over the distance and her sire did excel mainly over middle distances, but 12 furlongs is still considered to be well within her ability. Christophe Lemaire, current No. 2 jockey in JRA racing, is expected to get the ride.

Lys Gracieux: Much like Soul Stirring, Lys Gracieux has yet to finish out of the top three spots since her debut. She broke her maiden over 1,800 meters, but all of her other five starts have been at the mile. She was second in the Hanshin Juvenile Fillies just 0.2 seconds behind Soul Stirring and second in the Oka Sho, 0.1 seconds behind Reine Minoru. Lys Gracieux also has experience at Tokyo, having proven herself by winning the Grade 3 Artemis Stakes at the end of October. With Heart's Cry as her sire, the extra distance of the Oaks is seen to be a definite plus. Lys Gracieux is to be partnered with Yutaka Take.

Admire Miyabi: Following Admire Lead's victory in the Victoria Mile, owner Riichi Kondo will be seeking his second big win in as many weeks with Admire Miyabi, another Heart's Cry filly. Admire Miyabi had four wins and one second until she was handed her first major loss, a double-digit finish in the Oka Sho. Trainer Yasuo Tomomichi writes it off largely to the distance. “The mile is too short for her and the going was bad. She couldn't get traction in a number of spots in the Oka Sho and she also covered extra ground with an outside run,” Tomomichi said. Admire Miyabi has two wins from two starts at Tokyo, including her win of the Feb. 11 Grade 3 Queen Cup, in which she beat runnerup Aerolite, who went on to win the Grade 1 NHK Mile Cup at Tokyo two weeks ago in 1 minute, 32.3 seconds, the third-fastest time in the race's 22-year history. Japan's current leading rider Mirco Demuro, who rode Admire Miyabi in the Oka Sho, will once again be up in lieu of regular rider Christophe Lemaire.

Reine Minoru: Oka Sho champion Reine Minoru has only one race out of the top three spots, the Grade 3 Queen Cup. Starting her career with two wins in a row, she narrowly missed the winner's circle for her next four starts until once again claiming victory in the Oka Sho. Favoring a position on the pace, the Daiwa Major-sired Reine Minoru was not flummoxed by the slightly yielding track of the Oka Sho. A bigger concern for the Oaks is the distance. Her fourth in the 1,600-meter Queen Cup and the fact that she has never raced at distances longer than the mile indicate Reine Minoru may not be well-suited to either the track or the distance. Also, progeny of Daiwa Major have yet to win a JRA graded stakes race at distances over or including 2,000 meters. Still, Reine Minoru's forte is her speed and if she can secure a good position from the gate as she did in the Oka Sho, she may be able to hold her ground. Reine Minoru is trained by Masaru Honda, who as a jockey rode to victory in all the filly classics. Jockey Kenichi Ikezoe is looking to make it his third win of the Oaks.

Mozu Katchan: Mozu Katchan is on a three-race winning streak, the last victory being her first bid in a graded stakes race, the Grade 2 Flora Stakes, a 2,000-meter event on April 23 at Tokyo. She was advantaged by an inside draw but had a hard time getting a clear run, yet was able to top the field in a close finish that put her over the line in first by a nose ahead of Yamakatsu Grace, with Flawless Magic a neck later in third. Mozu Katchan's other four starts were all over 1,800 meters, and from them she has reaped two wins, a third and a sixth. It's not a bad performance for only having debuted last year on Christmas Eve. A jump to Grade 1 company may be asking a lot, but the Harbinger filly has improved in leaps and bounds. Trainer Ippo Sameshima believes the distance will not pose a problem. “Looking at her last start, she'll be able to settle well over 2,400 meters,” the Ritto-based Sameshima said.

Also drawing attention are Deirdre and Flawless Magic. Deirdre has yet to fare better than a third at the Grade 3 level, but her sixth in the Oka Sho was only 0.6 seconds off of the race winner and 0.2 seconds off of NHK Mile winner Aerolite, which finished fifth. By Harbinger, Deirdre displayed excellent late speed on May 7 in winning the 1,800-meter Yaguruma Sho by 2 lengths and may find Tokyo to her liking.

The Miho-based Flawless Magic finished third in the Flora Stakes, her first time racing at longer than the mile. Her last four starts, all at Tokyo, included two Grade 3 races and the Grade 2 Flora Stakes. From the four she has notched one win, one second and two thirds.

VICTORIA MILE 2017 - Admire Lead Dismisses Favorit 15 May 12:37 pm

Four-year-old Admire Lead captured her first grade-race victory in this year's Victoria Mile after being sent off sixth favorite in a field of 17, putting away three G1 champions. The Stay Gold filly registered two wins out of four starts in her debut season but was winless in all six of her three-year-old campaign starts after challenging the fillies' classics, finishing fifth in the Oka Sho (Japanese 1000 Guineas) and 15th in the Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks). However, she notched a back-to-back win and had shown a good runner-up effort in her most recent G2 Hanshin Himba Stakes start. For both trainer Naosuke Sugai and jockey Christophe Lemaire, this is their 11th JRA-G1 victory—their latest were the 2015 Tenno Sho (Spring) with Gold Ship and the 2016 Arima Kinen with Satono Diamond, respectively.

The field broke evenly with Solveig rushing to the front setting a slow pace as Smart Layer sat at her heels on the rails with Jour Polaire right behind that while Admire Lead settled far back in 12th behind Queens Ring and Denko Ange. While most of the field fanned out to avoid the soft inner-track going due to the heavy rain the day before, Admire Lead chose an economic inner route heading into the stretch and dug in gamely between Solveig and Smart Layer 150 meters out, stretching strongly from thereon to cross the finish line a comfortable 1-1/4-length winner.

“I had every confidence in her today because I knew the soft track wouldn't bother her at all. I was able to position her well and although she has a good turn of foot, her charge doesn't last long so I tried not to drive her in early stretch. She kicked off the season with two wins and then a second in a G2 race—it's obvious she's progressed enormously,” commented Christophe Lemaire who claimed his 600th JRA career win in his first race today.

As Solveig, Smart Layer and Queens Ring, who also took an inner path into the lane, furiously rallied for the runner-up seat, Queens Ring was first to drop away 100 meters out before both Solveig and then Smart Layer were caught by Denko Ange who came up gamely from the outside to clear the wire in second. While the runner-up displayed an incredible last three-furlong drive, Jour Polaire, who chased Solveig down the middle of the straight, also dug in well to tag her front runners in the final strides for third.

Breaking from stall 11, heavy favorite Mikki Queen traveled wide in seventh to eighth and angled out at the top of the stretch for clear sailing, however met traffic with a furlong to go, losing momentum to finish seventh.

Other Horses:
8th: (15) Frontier Queen―unhurried near rear, accelerated and tied fastest over last 3 furlongs, but belated
9th: (12) Ukiyono Kaze―traveled outside eventual winner, met traffic at early stretch, showed belated charge thereafter
10th: (7) Rouge Buck―ran behind eventual winner, quickened impressively, but was too late
11th: (14) Let's Go Donki―advanced to 4-5th from wide draw, showed little at stretch
12th: (1) At the Seaside―positioned near rear, turned innermost, ran gamely until furlong pole, outrun
13th: (6) Asuka Biren―prominent early in 3rd, sustained bid until 200m marker, weakened thereafter
14th: (13) Hiruno Matera―trailed in rear, turned inner route, failed to respond and gradually fell back
15th: (16) Kurino Lahore―raced wide in mid-division, checked turning final corner, lost momentum
16th: (17) Lethal Weapon―chased leader early from widest draw, met traffic at 400m marker, dropped back
17th: (9) Halteclere―traveled around 7th inside favorite, no factor after turning into stretch

Sugouma Robot

With Pro Tipster MAX over 20 well-known professional tipsters provide their racing tips for a fee (from 100 yen/race).

[POG] stands for Paper Owner Game. Even though it's a virtual game, the horses are all real--several thousand JRA registered thoroughbreds. You select from among them and if your bid wins the auction, it's registered as your POG horse. You can keep up to 20 POG horses in your stable and the game is in competing for prize money with those horses. Apart from the game, pictures of about 400 race horses have been posted, and appreciating their beautiful bodies is one more pleasure.

Can I see racing tips for free?

There are both free tips and those you pay for.
You have to pay for the racing tips of professional tipsters.
Doing so requires the Umanity virtual currency, Gold (G).
Gold can be purchased with credit card.
Although you can view the racing tips of non-professional tipsters for "free," in some cases you need to use Umanity points, which you can get for free by being active on the site, such as by logging in, posting tips in the Tip Coliseum, etc.

What is the U-index?

It is an index developed exclusively by Umanity to indicate the performance of a racehorse.
The value is based on the time over the distance of each horse to date, and estimates whether and how well they will perform in this race; as such, the higher the index, the better the race performance is expected to be.
The U-index is provided to Umanity members free for high-stakes races. To use it on all races, you have to become a member of the Umanity VIP Club, which is a paid service.
