Seventh Pick Epoca d’Oro Dominates the Field to Wi16 Apr 12:02 pm

This year’s Satsuki Sho was won by seventh favorite Epoca d’Oro followed by ninth pick Sans Rival in second and eighth choice Generale Uno in third, causing an upset in the first leg of the Triple Crown. Epoca d’Oro, finishing third in his debut start last October, marked two consecutive wins entering this season and was qualified to race in the Satsuki Sho by coming in second in the previous Spring Stakes. This win was the ninth JRA-G1 victory for trainer Hideaki Fujiwara and seventh for jockey Keita Tosaki—first since the 2016 Victoria Mile with Straight Girl for both. This win marked the father-and-son victory as his sire, Orfevre, was a Triple Crown winner in 2011. One of Orfevre fillies, Lucky Lilac, has also won the 2017 Hanshin juvenile Fillies.

Epoca d’Oro, breaking sharply from stall seven, rallied for the lead but eventually settled in fourth and traveled at his own pace while the first three runners led by Aithon set a fast pace. With over a ten-length gap between the frontrunners, the son of Orfevre continued to lead the remaining field at a sound pace down the backstretch, diligently closed the gap turning the last two corners and, though with still some gap at the top of the stretch, unleashed a powerful drive in the lane to overtake the front 100 meters out and pulled away to a two-length victory.

“I was able to position him as planned. He ran in good rhythm and responded well rounding the final corner. He’s a smart horse and is developing with each race. His powerful run today shows that he will have no problem handling the extra distance in the Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby),” commented Keita Tosaki.

Ninth choice Sans Rival, also breaking smoothly from stall 14, settled right behind Epoca d’Oro in fifth and continued to stalk the eventual winner until the wire with an impressive late charge to finish second.

Eighth favorite Generale Uno made a good break and pressed the fast pace set by Aithon in second. The son of Screen Hero briefly inherited the lead 200 meters out but was soon dislodged by Epoca d’Oro then Sans Rival in the last 100 meters while managing to hold off the strong challenge by second-pick Stelvio by a neck.

Odds-on-favorite Wagnerian broke smoothly and eased back towards the rear. Driven after the third corner, the Deep Impact colt turned wide but was unable to display his trademark late charge at the homestretch and finish seventh.

Other Horses:
4th: (15) Stelvio―ran near rear, turned wide, quickened and tied fastest over last 3 furlongs, was too late
5th: (5) Kitano Commandeur―raced wide near rear, showed belated charge, tied fastest over last 3 furlongs
6th: (12) Grail―trailed in rear, accelerated between horses, tied fastest over last 3 furlongs
8th: (6) Aithon―set pace, led until 200m out, overtaken by rivals in last 100m
9th: (3) Gendarme―traveled around 11-12th, showed effort, weakened in last 100m
10th: (1) Time Flyer―positioned around 9th, even paced
11th: (8) K T Clever―ran in 5-6th behind eventual winner, sustained bind until 100m out
12th: (9) Oken Moon―sat near rear early, made headway after 3rd corner, lacked needed kick
13th: (11) Meiner Fanrong―raced wide in 7th, ran willingly until 200m out, weakened
14th: (13) Double Sharp―traveled wide around 10th, failed to respond at stretch
15th: (16) Jun Valerot―chased leaders in 3rd from widest draw, fell back at stretch
16th: (4) Three Helios―saved ground in 8-9th, faded after 3rd corner

Oju Chosan Sets New Record in Third Consecutive Na16 Apr 12:01 pm

Oju Chosan made winning his third consecutive Nakayama Grand Jump easy despite facing setbacks earlier this year with minor health problems that forced him to pass up an intended prep start before his history-making challenge in extending his J-G1 winning streak to five and tying Australia’s Karasi Nakayama Grand Jump (2005-2007) in consecutive Nakayama Grand Jump wins. His dominating victory this year broke the previous race record set Up to Date in 2015 by 3.6 seconds. The talented and speedy jumper now has notched nine consecutive grade-race wins—another JRA record, steeplechase and flat racing combined and is the richest steeplechase horse with a career earnings of 533,073,000 yen, exceeding the previous record held by Gokai (502,244,000 yen). Both trainer Shoichiro Wada and jockey Shinichi Ishigami claimed their fifth career J-G1 title—all won with Oju Chosan.

Oju Chosan broke smoothly out of gate six and settled nicely along the rails behind Meisho Arawashi who assumed a brief lead over the first obstacle then Up to Date who advanced from the outside to take command approaching the second obstacle (fence no.1). Up to Date continued to lead the way, a few lengths clear of the rest of the field, up to the big brush fence where the gray was joined by Oju Chosan and Meiner Crop as the three horses cleared the fifth obstacle (no.6) side-by-side and changed hands to the left. Oju Chosan cruised without a hurry a few lengths behind Meiner Crop and Up to Date, who disputed the lead in front, but advanced to second again before the big hedge (no.7) with Meiner Crop and Crans Montana close at his heels as the field changed hands again to the right.

Nihonpiro Baron advanced to third as both Meiner Crop and Crans Montana began to fall behind entering the backstretch towards the tenth obstacle (no.8) but still had much ground to make behind Oju Chosan who had closed in on Up to Date with 800 meters to go and then took over that foe as they cleared the second to last fence (no.9). Up to Date showed great effort to chase Oju Chosan, clearing the last fence a couple of lengths from the eventual winner, but was no match to the eventual winner who opened the gap with every stride to a staggering 15-lengths victory. Still, the son of Kurofune, while second best to the unbeatable bay, proved a different class from the rest of the field finishing a good nine lengths in front of the third-place finisher.
“He felt really strong today. We gave too much space between ourselves and Up to Date in our last start so the plan this time was to stay within striking distance from the leader. I had hoped Up to Date would pull us along a little further but I could feel my horse so strong before the final jump and he just fired from there. Quite frankly, I think this horse is just too strong and unbeatable so we’re quite confident in continuing to extend his winning streak and notch another J-G1 win in December,” commented winning jockey Shinichi Ishigami.

Other Horses:
3rd: (3) Nihonpiro Baron―ran in 8th early, improved position to 6th after 5th jump (fence no.6), 5th after 7th jump (fence no.7), 3rd before 10th jump (fence no.8), chased leaders, weakened after final jump (fence no.10)
4th: (5) Le Pere Noel―settled in 7th, made headway after 10th jump (fence no.8), dueled with T M Opera Don for fourth
5th: (10) T M Opera Don―sat towards rear early, steadily improved position, advanced to 4th briefly in stretch, weakened in final strides
6th: (8) Crans Montana―chased top 2 finishers in 3rd early, stayed prominent up to backstretch then faded.
7th: (2) Thinking Dancer―positioned in 5th early, 6th after 7th jump (fence no.7), made headway to 4th around 10th jump (fence no.8), weakened at stretch
8th: (7) Meisho Arawashi―raced in 4th early, dropped back to 6th after 5th jump (fence no.6), 8th after 7th jump (fence no.7)
9th: (1) Sanrei Duke―traveled around 10th, unable to reach contention
10th: (11) Tosen Melissa―trailed in rear early, passed tired rivals, never a threat
11th: (12) Samurai Fountain―almost rear throughout, no factor
12th: (4) Meiner Crop―led briefly around 5th jump (fence no.6), tired after early efforts.

Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas) (G1) - Preview11 Apr 11:05 am

After 3-year-old filly Almond Eye carried off the Grade 1 Oka Sho (Japanese 1000 Guineas) in some style last Sunday at Hanshin Racecourse, top level horseracing action in Japan switches to the east of the country this coming weekend, when Nakayama Racecourse offers up a couple of big races, namely the Nakayama Grand Jump steeplechase on Saturday, April 14, and the Grade 1 Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas) on Sunday, April 15. The latter is the first leg of the Triple Crown, and is run on turf at the right-handed Nakayama course over 2,000 meters on the inner track, with the start just in front of the stands.

The race was first run in 1939, and with no races in 1945 and 1946, this year sees the 78th running of the Satsuki Sho. Step races on the way this year have included the Grade 2 Fuji TV Sho Spring Stakes over 1,800 meters at Nakayama, Grade 2 Hochi Hai Yayoi Sho over 2,000 meters, also at Nakayama (both races are official Guineas trials), and the Open Class Wakaba Stakes over 2,000 meters at Hanshin. All those races were run in March.

There have been 17 nominations for the colts’ Classic, but one absentee on Sunday, to most people’s regret, is the unbeaten colt Danon Premium. News last week that the horse has a stone bruise affecting his right foreleg means he has to skip the race, but hopefully will have the Derby as his future target. But it’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good, and the Deep Impact colt’s absence means things will be conducted on a more level playing field this Sunday. Twenty three Satsuki Sho winners have gone on to win the Derby, the latest to do so was Duramente in 2015. Record times for the race have been tumbling in recent years, and the current record of 1 minute, 57.8 seconds was set just last year when Al Ain won the race. Only two first favorites have won in the last 10 years, so whatever starts favorite on Sunday would seem to be up against it.

The Satsuki Sho will be Race 11 on the card at Nakayama on Sunday, with a post time of 15.40 local time. Here’s a look at some of the candidates with a chance of carrying off the ¥110 million winner’s check:

Stelvio: Lord Kanaloa is proving a big hit as a sire, and Stelvio is another of his offspring already proving that. The colt is three wins and two seconds from five starts, and in his only run as a 3-year-old, he ran out the winner of the Grade 2 Fuji TV Sho Spring Stakes over 1,800 meters at Nakayama last month. Adding this to his second in last year’s Grade 1 Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes seems to put him on a high level already. Jockey Christophe Lemaire will be keen to add this race to his glittering CV, as he has yet to win this Grade 1. Trainer Tetsuya Kimura is looking for his first Grade 1 win, so perhaps it’s all written in the stars for Stelvio here. The trainer commented: “Even though it was a narrow win last time in the Spring Stakes, I felt it was a big win because I wasn’t sure the adjustment in training would lead to him winning over 1,800 meters, but it did.”

Wagnerian: The Northern Farm bred colt had three straight wins as a 2-year-old, and then came out and finished second to Danon Premium in his one run this year in the Grade 2 Hochi Hai Yayoi Sho over 2,000 meters at Nakayama in March. Jockey Yuichi Fukunaga has ridden him in all of his races so far and looks set to take the ride this time as well. Wagnerian’s trainer, Yasuo Tomomichi, commented: “Two starts ago he was very tense when he travelled over to Tokyo. Last start too he got worked up, but in the paddock and on the way to post, the jockey said it was the best he’d been so far. Since that last race, there was no damage and things have gone according to plan with his training.”

Time Flyer: The colt by Heart’s Cry already boasts a Grade 1 win when claiming the Hopeful Stakes at the end of last year, when given a great ride by Christian Demuro. Trainer Kunihide Matsuda wanted to use that race to see how the horse would run over the course and distance of the Satsuki Sho. Even though the colt was fifth in the Wakaba Stakes most recently, the trainer knows what he’s capable of. “He was slightly unlucky last time, taking a bump at the start. This and the slow pace didn’t help, and as he takes just a little time to get switched on, he couldn’t manage to finish any closer. He’s recovered from that race, and has got his appetite back,” Matsuda said.

Kitano Commandeur: The ¥205 million purchase at the 2016 Select Sale runs in the DMM Dream Club ownership colors, and the colt by Deep Impact has won both his starts so far. His latest win came in the Open Class Sumire Stakes over 2,200 meters in February at Hanshin. While still immature, the owners will be hoping for bigger and better things from Kitano Commandeur. Trainer Yasutoshi Ikee commented: “His muscles are soft, which hides the rather stiff way he has of walking due to his posture. He’s been out at the farm, and in work he put in on March 29, his breathing was a bit heavy, but that’s to be expected, and after a couple more pieces of work I’m sure he’ll be better.” It looks like another challenging ride for jockey Mirco Demuro, who has won the Satsuki Sho four times.

Oken Moon: The colt by Oken Bruce Lee won at Nakayama in January over 2,000 meters, and has since won the Grade 3 Kyodo News Hai over 1,800 meters at Tokyo in February. Jockey Hiroshi Kitamura has ridden him in all of his races and is scheduled to partner him on Sunday again. Trainer Sakae Kunieda, who trains Oka Sho winner, Almond Eye, commented on Oken Moon: “I didn’t think he looked so good last time, and his movement wasn’t so good, but he still got a good result. Since then he’s been at the farm, and he’s looking a lot better now.”

Aithon: It’s three wins from six starts for Aithon, and it’s been two runaway wins over 2,000 meters so far in 2018, the latest in the Open Class Wakaba Stakes in March. Trainer Tadao Igarashi said, “The three races that he’s won have all been by him getting to the front and managing to stay there. It seems this is going to be the best way for him, to dictate a race at his own pace.”
Generale Uno: The colt by Screen Hero has already amassed more prize money than his purchase price, and took a big leap up in class last time to win the Grade 3 Keisei Hai over 2,000 meters at Nakayama in January, justifying favoritism in that race. It looks like jockey Hironobu Tanabe’s big race ride. Trainer Eiichi Yano is looking for his first Grade 1 victory, and commented on Generale Uno: “He came back to the stable on March 23, and looked a bit heavy in his training on March 25. Since then though, he’s become a lot sharper, and he should be in prime condition heading into the race.”

Oka Sho (Japanese 1000 Guineas) (G1) - Almond Eye'09 Apr 11:18 am

Second pick Almond Eye captured the first of the 2018 three-year-old fillies’ Triple, the Oka Sho (Japanese 1000 Guineas) to give sire Lord Kanaloa his first G1 title as a sire. The speedy filly’s winning time of 1:33.1 renewed the previous race record held by Apapane in 2010 by 0.2 seconds. Out of 2006 Queen Elilzabeth II Commemorative Cup winner Fusaichi Panndora, Almond Eye made her two-year-old debut in August last year and broke her maiden in her second career start in October. Her G1 triumph in the race came after the filly scored her first grade-race victory in January in the Shinzan Kinen. Trainer Sakae Kunieda, who had previously won the Oka Sho in 2010 with Apapane, subsequent winner of all three of the fillies’ Triple, scored his 12th JRA-G1 title with win—his latest being with Danon Platina in the 2014 Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes. Jockey Christophe Lemaire, who finally captured his first Oka Sho title after two misses with race favorites, Major Emblem (fourth) and Soul Stirring (third) in 2016 and 2017, respectively. Lemaire collected his 15th JRA-G1 title after his most recent win with Deirdre in the Shuka Sho last year.

Almond Eye was unhurried early, raced second from the rear and, while still way back entering the homestretch, exerted an impressive turn of speed that marked the fastest finish over the final 600 meters that carried the Lord Kanaloa filly past her rivals and close in on Lucky Lilac in the final strides for a 1-3/4-length victory.

“Her response and speed at the stretch was unbelievable and felt great! Her strides kept getting bigger and all I had to do was to keep her straight. A step up in distance shouldn’t be a problem for this talented filly who has great potentials to win the Triple,” commented Lemaire

Lucky Lilac, who was sent to post race favorite and undefeated in four career starts including the two-year-old championship G1, the 2017 Hanshin Juvenile Fillies over the same course and distance at Hanshin, broke sharply from the innermost stall and settled nicely in fourth position along the rails and within striking distance from the leader. Advancing to third position at the third corner and shifting out slightly turning for home, the Orfevre filly came forth as expected down the center lane, assumed command passing the furlong pole but failed to exert her trademark burst of speed despite her jockey’s left-hand urgings and, while staying in contention to the wire, was unable to match the finishing speed of the winner and succumbed to second.

Lily Noble was rated not far back from the leaders in mid-division and outside rivals, allowing her to make smooth headway approaching the final corner. Securing a clear path along the outside route entering the stretch, the Rulership filly commenced her chase but overtaken by the fast closing winner on her outside and only really picked up her speed in the closing stages for the share.

Other Horses:
4th: (7) Tosen Bless―raced in mid-division, showed good late drive but failed to threaten
5th: (17) Mau Lea―traveled wide in mid-pack, lacked needed kick at stretch
6th: (3) Liberty Heights―saved ground in mid-group, quickened at stretch then faded
7th: (5) Red Sakuya―ran in 5th, ran willingly but overtaken by rivals in final strides
8th: (6) Scarlet Color―settled in mid-division, showed belated effort at stretch
9th: (18) Tsuzumimon―advanced to 2nd from widest stall, led at early stretch, weakened in last 200m
10th: (15) Primo Scene―was off slow, met traffic, belated kick from 300m out
11th: (4) Encore Plus―hugged rails in mid-pack, quickened until 100m out, weakened thereafter
12th: (16) Finift―sat wide towards rear, checked 300m out then showed belated effort
13th: (12) Dernier Or―trailed in rear, angled wide, passed tired rivals
14th: (8) Harlem Line―raced in mid-group, ran gamely until 200m out, dropped back thereafter
15th: (14) Red Regnant―traveled wide in mid-division, found little room after entering to lane
16th: (11) Cordierite―set pace, gradually fell back at stretch
17th: (10) Aonbharr―prominent early in 3rd, faded after final corner
Scratched: (2) Amalfi Coast―due to lameness in her left foreleg

Do I have to register to use the site?

No, some functions (such as news) can be used without registering.
However, most of the functions require becoming a member (free) and then you can use them for free, so we recommend becoming a member.

Q4:
Can I see racing tips for free?
A4:

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.

Q5:
What is the U-index?
A5:

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.
