Racing News

This coming Sunday and next, the JRA turns the spotlight onto the budding talent in this season’s 2-year-olds, and it’s ladies first with the Grade 1 Hanshin Juvenile Fillies on Dec. 9, followed by the Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes the week after at Hanshin Racecourse.

This year, the Hanshin Juvenile Fillies sees 19 fillies nominated for a full deck of 18 with many of those set to take on their first top-level race have only a few races underneath their belts – some only one prior start.

Of the 19 nominees, three are expected to pull out – Wiesbaden, Sano Honey and Medetashimedetashi – which will leave a final lineup of 16. All will carry 54kg over the 1,600 meters on the outer turf course at Hanshin Racecourse, west of Osaka in neighboring Hyogo Prefecture.

The winner will earn JPY65 million from a purse of JPY140.2 million and be virtually assured of the title of Best 2-Year-Old Filly at the 2019 JRA Awards.

The 1,600-meter outer course at Hanshin, where races are run to the right, is also the course used for the Grade 1 Oka Sho (Japanese 1000 Guineas), the first race in the fillies’ triple crown. The Hanshin Juvenile Fillies starts along the backstretch and covers 444m before hitting the first turn. With three furlongs to the finish line, the track dips two meters for 400 meters, then rises steeply over the last 200 meters, making it a formidable test of stamina as well as speed.

The race record is held by seven-time Grade 1 champion and the 2008, 2009 JRA Horse of the Year Vodka, who cut a time of 1 minute, 33.1 seconds in 2006. The Hanshin Juvenile Fillies will be the 11th race on Hanshin’s Sunday card of 12, with post time of 15:40 local time.

The early favorites for the 71st running of the Hanshin Juvenile Fillies are:

Cravache d’Or: Her Mitsumasa Nakauchida stablemate Ria Amelia may command more of the pre-race spotlight but this Heart’s Cry daughter looks more than capable of stealing the show Sunday. Cravache d’Or, out of the Giant’s Causeway dam Path of Dreams, won her September debut – the mile at Hanshin – against the boys and then followed up with a runner-up finish in the Grade 3 Saudi Arabia Royal Cup (1,600m) on Oct. 5. The performance in the Saudi Arabia Royal Cup was particularly impressive, raising a lot of eyebrows as Cravache d’Or went toe-to-toe against her half-brother Salios, who won in a course record for 2-year-olds and is tipped by many for next week’s Asahihai Futurity Stakes. Cravache d’Or may have conceded first place but her time of 1 minute, 32.9 seconds also bettered the old record. Her jockey Yusuke Fujioka said the race would have been even closer if not for the positioning turning for home. “I don’t think we could have asked for more out of her in the previous start,” assistant trainer Teruhiko Saruhashi said. “It was a good performance. We always felt the challenge for her was going to come away from the race itself – traveling to the racetrack, all the waiting around, warming up, that sort of thing. Maybe because it was her second time out, but she handled everything much better than we expected.” With ample space in between starts, Cravache d’Or has been working out well which only strengthens her case as a legitimate contender. “She’s been training good at the stable since. She isn’t nervous and is all set to go,” Saruhashi said.

Maltese Diosa: The Hanshin Juvenile Fillies will be the Kizuna daughter’s fourth start and take it from the jockey who rode Maltese Diosa in the Saffron Sho that she has a very bright future ahead of her. “Kizuna’s kids come in all shapes and sizes but this one is nice and easygoing,” Yutaka Take said, after steering her to victory on Sept. 29 at Nakayama. “I’m really looking forward to what she does from hereon.” While the Takahisa Tezuka-trained filly dropped her August debut to a fellow Hanshin Juvenile Fillies entry – Woman’s Heart – Maltese Diosa won her two following starts with a closing rush reminiscent of her father. Hironobu Tanabe will return to the saddle after missing the Saffron Sho but to a new and improved partner, who has been putting in the work for what will be her first graded test. “I liked the way she won her last start. She’s racing at a much higher level than I had imagined,” Tezuka said. “She looks a full size bigger since the previous race, looking more powerful than her weight would suggest.” The trainer is convinced if Maltese Diosa can break well, she has every chance of ending up in the winner’s circle. “We’ve been working on her start and we think if she can just get a solid jump out of the gate, she should have no problems during the trip,” he said. “She’s an easy ride and can handle the traffic. She won’t take a backseat here, even in this company.”

Resistencia: Just two starts into her career, the Takeshi Matsushita-trained filly is already drawing comparisons to her sire Daiwa Major for her pace and racing instincts. Resistencia, out of the Argentinian dam Malacostumbrada, comfortably won her Oct. 14 debut before capturing her first graded title on Nov. 2, the Grade 3 Fantasy Stakes. She may not have the explosiveness of Ria Amelia or Woman’s Heart, but her ability to stay under control could prove priceless amid an inexperienced field running more on potential and blood rather than tactics. “She was great in her work last week. No complaints there,” Matsushita said. “She weighs the same as she did for her last start but looks much sharper, which probably says something about the condition she’s in. The jockey (Yuichi Kitamura) said there’s a sensitive side to her, but she still improved from her first race to the second. The 1,600 meters is well within her range.”

Ria Amelia : Trainer Mitsumasa Nakauchida could be back with another No. 1 choice after winning the race with Danon Fantasy a year ago. Ria Amelia, by Deep Impact out of the Rockport Harbor dam Ria Antonia, debuted in stunning fashion in June, when she won by eight lengths at Hanshin. She followed up in her second start, the Grade 3 Artemis Stakes on Oct. 26 at Tokyo, by going from last to first on the final straight alone, beating eight horses to victory. There were some concerns whispered after the rising star put on 20kg ahead of the Artemis Stakes but the filly, under jockey Yuga Kawada, laid those questions to rest by bursting through the last three furlongs in a race-record 33 seconds flat. Assistant trainer Teruhiko Saruhashi said all the noise came from outside the stable, never inside. “She was not fat despite what her weight may have suggested,” Saruhashi said. “She just grew and started filling out, simple as that. I will not say she has no issues whatsoever after the way she’s raced so far, but I’m also not particularly worried either. We’ve been communicating with the jockey and everyone else on the team after the races so we’re in good shape.” The lone knock on Ria Amelia is that she has competed in only small fields – she was up against just six in her maiden race – but as the daughter of a Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies winner and a Japanese thoroughbred legend, she is primed to win this Hanshin Juvenile Fillies. “She’s been putting in the work since her last race at a constant,” Saruhashi said. “She was born a brilliant racehorse so I’m not sure how much better she can get. I don’t see a huge difference in her from the last start, but she’s shaping up really well.”
Woman’s Heart: One of three 2-for-2 graded winners in the race alongside Resistencia and Ria Amelia, expectations are high for Woman’s Heart, who hails from a stable rich in Grade 1 tradition – trainer Katsuichi Nishiura won three top-level races with T M Ocean and two with Kawakami Princess. Woman’s Heart, by Heart’s Cry out of Lady of Persia, has closed out her first two races in under 33 seconds including the Grade 3 Niigata Nisai Stakes on Aug. 25. While she has yet to run clockwise, there’s no reason to think that will stop Nishiura’s latest prodigy from adding to the stable’s already glorious trophy-case. “She put in the practice she needed to a week ago,” Nishiura said. “There’s no telling how she will handle running to her right but given what I’ve seen in the workouts, I don’t think there will be any issues. It will come down to what kind of a kick she can show down the stretch, but I’m expecting a third win in a row.”

Unbeaten Three-Year-Old Chrysoberyl Claims This Ye02 Dec 10:58 am

Second pick Chrysoberyl beat strong G1 dirt winners with race record time of 1:48.5 and claimed this year’s Champions Cup with an unbeaten six-race winning streak. He is the fifth three-year-old to claim the title following Le Vent Se Leve last year. Half brother to two-time G1 winner Marialite, Chrysoberyl broke his maiden in his debut start in September last year and was sidelined for six months due to a leg problem. The Gold Allure colt won his comeback start in March this year then claimed three major NAR races including the Hyogo Championship (dirt, 1,870m) in May, the Japan Dirt Derby (dirt, 2000m) in July and the Nippon TV Hai (dirt, 1,800m) in September, before making his first JRA G1 challenge. This win gave trainer Hidetaka Otonashi his 12th JRA-G1 victory following his Mile Championship title with Indy Champ last month and jockey Yuga Kawada’s 13th JRA-G1 win following last year’s Sprinters Stakes victory with Fine Needle.

Chrysoberyl broke sharply from stall five and took an economic trip behind frontrunner Inti in third. The Gold Allure colt, still hugging the rails at the heal of Inti entering the lane, waited patiently and steered slightly to the outside for a clear path around the 200-meter pole where he met the strong challenge of race favorite Gold Dream. As the two sons of Gold Allure dueled fiercely along the lane, Chrysoberyl was the first to nail the frontrunner 100 meters out and accelerated further to cross the wire a neck in front for his title.

“We were able to settle in good position behind Inti and the colt was able to race with good rhythm. Though it was difficult to advance, having to race between Inti and Gold Dream at the stretch, we were able to pull away and win the rally at the end. He is still unbeaten and I’m confident that he will continue to develop and become even stronger,” commented jockey Yuga Kawada.

Gold Dream traveled two wide behind Chrysoberyl in fifth and angled out as the field stretched wide entering the homestretch. The 2017 Champions Cup winner produced a powerful burst of speed in the lane, dueled strongly with the eventual winner in the last 200 meters but was a neck short in second. Third pick Inti took the front as usual and, though turning over the lead in the last 100 meters, held on well until the wire to secure third place.

Other Horses:
4th: (3) Chuwa Wizard—hugged rails behind winner, met traffic and switched to outside 200m out, showed effort but failed to threaten top finishers
5th: (12) King’s Guard—raced 2nd from rear, accelerated between horses, timed fastest over last 3 furlongs
6th: (6) Omega Perfume—traveled around 8th, found little room at early stretch, switched to outside then quickened
7th: (16) Vengeance—settled 3rd from rear, turned wide, passed tired rivals
8th: (1) Time Flyer—saved ground around 10th, checked 300m out, accelerated thereafter
9th: (8) Westerlund—positioned around 10th early, gradually advanced, showed brief effort
10th: (15) London Town—sat forwardly from wide stall, ran gamely until 200m out, weakened
11th: (7) Wonder Lider—settled around 13th, angled out, showed effort but never a threat
12th: (2) Mozu Attraction—trailed in rear, circled wide, showed belated charge
13th: (10) Mitsuba—took economic trip around 12th, even paced at stretch
14th: (13) Wide Pharaoh—raced 4-wide around 9th, checked 200m out, lost momentum
15th: (9) Satono Titan—traveled 3-wide around 7th, outrun in last 400m
16th: (14) T O Energy—tracked leader in 2nd, faded after turning final corner

Champions Cup (G1) - Preview26 Nov 4:59 pm

Following on from the Japan Cup, there’s a change of venue and track surface for this week’s Grade 1 Champions Cup, a race to be run at Chukyo Racecourse. It’s a dirt race run over 1,800 meters on the left-handed Chukyo track, and the race always attracts some of the best dirt horses in Japan. It’s an international race too, but no runners from overseas will be in the lineup this time around.

The race was originally known as the Japan Cup Dirt when it was first run at Tokyo in the year 2000, over a distance of 2,100 meters. It was then switched to Hanshin in 2008 and the distance was shortened to 1,800 meters. Since 2014 the race has been run at Chukyo, giving the Aichi Prefecture track another Grade 1 race day, after the Takamatsunomiya Kinen which is held in March.

The race starts in front of the stands and takes in just over a circuit of the track, with a downhill run from about the 1,000 meters point, leading to the relatively short homestretch of about 410 meters, which rises for almost 200 meters before flattening out towards the finish line. The race is for 3-year-olds and above, and this year there are 20 nominations for a maximum field of 16. Four first favorites have won in the last ten years, and in that same period, 5-year-olds have come out on top with four victories, while 4-year-olds have won three times. Last year’s winner, the 3-year-old Le Vent Se Leve, was the fourth 3-year-old to win in the race’s history, and equaled the race record time of 1 minute 50.1 seconds, also recorded by Sound True in 2016 and Gold Dream in 2017.

Some of the races runners in the Champions Cup have taken in earlier this year have included a couple of races in November, the Grade 3 Tokyo Chunichi Sports Hai Musashino Stakes over 1,600 meters at Tokyo, and the Grade 3 Miyako Stakes over 1,800 meters at Kyoto, as well as the Grade1 February Stakes over 1,600 meters at the beginning of the year. Prize and incentive money for this year’s 20th Champions Cup will be awarded to the first ten horses, with JPY100 million going to the winner.

Final declarations and the barrier draw will come out later in the week. Post time for the race on Sunday will be 15.30 local time, and the Champions Cup is Race 11 on the Chukyo card. 

Here’s a look at some of the dirt performers expected to take their chance in the race:

Chrysoberyl: The 3-year-old colt by Gold Allure is unbeaten in five starts on dirt and looks to be quite a dirt star in the making. Even though three of his wins have come in NAR races, his habit of being well up with the pace early and then accelerating away to win looks impressive. Trainer Hidetaka Otonashi said, “We haven’t overdone it with him, and even with a couple of months between races I thought it might have been difficult for him during the summer, but he’s still come out and won, like last time too, and now his winning streak has stretched to five.”

Gold Dream: Now a 6-year-old, Gold Dream is one of the most consistent dirt horses in Japan, and he won the Champions Cup in 2017 under Ryan Moore. He just found Inti too good for him in this year’s Grade 1 February Stakes, but another big run can be expected here. “As a horse that runs on late in his races, he started almost too well last time and took the bit early. He wasn’t able to run straight at the end because he couldn’t get a clear run, but it still wasn’t a bad result,” said trainer Osamu Hirata.

Omega Perfume: The 4-year-old colt by Swept Overboard has only ever run on dirt and his thirteen career races have yielded six wins, and he’s only been unplaced twice. He’s coming off a second place finish in the JBC Classic over 2,000 meters at Urawa in November. Trainer Shogo Yasuda commented: “We can look to this race after his performance in the JBC Classic, where due to the small oval track at Urawa, he wasn’t able to really demonstrate his speed. He’s come out of that race fine and we’re making sure there’s no tiredness about him.”

Chuwa Wizard: A horse that has always placed in the first three in all his races, the 4-year-old colt has built himself a good reputation, and comes here off the back of a narrow win in the JBC Classic at Urawa recently. He also won the Grade 3 Heian Stakes at Kyoto over 1,900 meters in May. “It was a tight finish last time, but he just got up to win and it was a gutsy performance. He’s managing to string some good results together,” assistant training staff at the stable of trainer Ryuji Okubo said.

Time Flyer: The 4-year-old by Heart’s Cry has been known more as a turf horse up to now, but has had three races on dirt since August and trainer Kunihide Matsuda will let him take his chance here. “He’d trained well before the Sirius Stakes, but in the actual race he wanted to get on with things early on, and because he’d lost weight and we had taken the hood off him, these things possibly contributed to his loss. With just the one turn in his last race, and with the hood back on, he ran a smoother race,” the trainer said.

Westerlund: Having only had two races this year, the 7-year-old gelding is just three races from his last Champions Cup, where he finished second as the eighth favorite. Coming off a third place finish in the Grade 3 Miyako Stakes over 1,800 meters at Kyoto in November, things could just go right for him here, especially with jockey Christophe Soumillon expected to take the ride. Trainer Shozo Sasaki said, “He ran well last time, and his effort was better than I thought it might be. Despite that uncertainty, he showed a lot of power, and just not having enough at the end could have been due to it being his first race for some time. It was a good run to take him into this race.”

Inti: Despite his poor result last time, the 5-year-old by Came Home is always an exciting horse to watch, and the fact that he’s won seven of his eleven career races speaks for itself. This year’s Grade 1 February Stakes winner will be looking to make amends for his last race, and follow in the footsteps of Gold Dream, who claimed the February Stakes/Champions Cup double in 2017. So too is trainer Kenji Nonaka. “He got very excited going into the first corner last time, and never raced kindly after that, leading to his poor result at the end. He does have this characteristic, but after his last race, there was little damage, and in fact less than what there might have been if he had run his usual race. He’s currently very well in himself.”

Vengeance: This will be the first Grade 1 race for the 6-year-old, having been a fairly surprising winner of the Grade 3 Miyako Stakes at Kyoto. Trainer Hiroyuki Oneda commented: “Last time the leaders in the race went off at a good pace, but he showed he was up to performing well in the way he could chase them down as the race went on, and showed a good turn of foot in the homestretch to go on and win. He’s come out of that race well and there’s no change with him.”
Wonder Lider: Another runner from the stable of trainer Shogo Yasuda, the 6-year-old by Statue of Liberty comes into the race off a good win in the Grade 3 Chunichi Sports Hai Musashino Stakes over 1,600 meters at Tokyo in November. The trainer is pleased with the horse’s condition. “After his last race, he walked and cantered on the Tuesday and was much less stiff than he was two starts ago after the Green Channel Cup. Given his condition, and the fact the jockey thinks 1,800 meters will suit him, we’ve decided to take on this race with him,” the trainer stated.

Suave Richard Captures Second G1 Title with Japan 25 Nov 12:27 pm

Third favorite Suave Richard claimed this year’s Japan Cup while capturing his much awaited second G1 title since his Osaka Hai victory last year and has now collected five grade-race titles. After the Osaka Hai, he marked four third-place finishes—the Yasuda Kinen (1,600m) and the Japan Cup last year, along with the Dubai Sheema Classic (2,410m) and the Takarazuka Kinen (2,200m) earlier this season. The five-year-old bounced back remarkably today from his recent Tenno Sho (Autumn) (G1, 2,000m) start in which he was seventh. For trainer Yasushi Shono, this is his second JRA-G1 title following the Osaka Hai victory with Suave Richard and jockey Oisin Murphy, who is riding under a short-term license, has now landed his first G1 and second graded victory following the G3 Negishi Stakes he claimed in January this year.

The 15-horse field broke in front of the stands on the soggy track with Daiwa Cagney, Danburite and Win Tenderness disputing for the lead. Apart from four horses trailing far behind, the leading group was tightly bunched up cruising down the backstretch with Suave Richard relaxed in seventh to eighth, four to five lengths from the pace on the rails. As the field fanned out at the top of the stretch, Suave Richard kicked into gear surging through an opening near the rails, inherited the lead from the tiring frontrunner before the furlong marker and dueled briefly with the strong challenge of Curren Bouquetd’or. However, the chestnut easily pulled away, showing a stronger drive to the wire to notch a 3/4-length win.

Breaking from the inner-most stall, fifth favorite Curren Bouquetd’or saved ground in third to fourth, entered the straight in second and fought the eventual winner at the furlong marker but failed to further threaten while putting in a good runner-up effort.

Sent off second favorite, 2018 Tokyo Yushun (Japanese Derby) victor Wagnerian travelled in sixth behind Curren Bouquetd’or along the backstretch, dropped back to eighth when the others started making their bids rounding the last turn, but finding a clear path in the middle of the straight, unleashed a furious charge, tagging the pace-setter 100 meters out for a 2-1/4 length third.
Race favorite and 2017 Japan Cup runner-up Rey de Oro, saved ground in eighth or ninth behind the eventual winner and ran willingly but was through by the furlong pole, fading to 11th—his first double-digit finish.

Other Horses:
4th: (14) Makahiki—trailed in rear, switched to the outside 300m out, showed belated charge, timed fastest over last 3 furlongs
5th: (6) You Can Smile—hugged rails in 12th, circled wide, accelerated with too much ground to make to threaten top finishers
6th: (7) Daiwa Cagney—set pace, showed tenacity after surrendering lead, outrun in last 100m
7th: (13) Etario—sat 3-wide in 4th, ran gamely until 200m pole, weakened thereafter
8th: (4) Muito Obrigado—settled behind eventual winner, found little room at early stretch, never fired
9th: (11) Cheval Grand—traveled 3-wide around 7th, showed little at stretch
10th: (9) Look Twice—raced 3rd from rear, never a threat
12th: (3) Win Tenderness—chased pace in third, gradually retreated before last turn
13th: (15) Jinambo—took wide trip in 9th, showed effort in early stretch, even paced thereafter
14th: (10) Danburite—broke well, pressed pace, maintained second in early stretch, faded
15th: (12) Taisei Trail—trailed second from rear, entered lane last, never a factor

Pro tipster "MAX"
Sugouma Robot

Recommend using!

With Pro Tipster MAX over 20 well-known professional tipsters provide their racing tips for a fee (from 100 yen/race). And their tips aren't just symbols that indicate the outcome, but proper racing tips that indicate the betting combination and how to allocate funds--racing tips whose wins/losses are completely transparent in this head-to-head world--a totally different critter from other horseracing tip sites, which only post their wins, but not the balance of wins/losses. The racing tips software [Sugouma Robot] is equipped with expected value theory for automatically buying only betting tickets with high expected yields.

Tip Coliseum

Recommend using!

First of all, you should try focusing on high-stakes races because you can get lots of information. [High Stakes Strategies] is packed with useful information for making racing tips, such as the latest information on the horses scheduled to run, the racing card, columns and results from the past 10 years. Next, try registering your tips in the [Tip Coliseum]. Simply registering a tip on a race will double the fun of watching them run. And up to this point it won't even cost you a single penny. You have nothing to lose as it's all free and you can take part in horseracing without betting any money.

Umanity POG

Recommend using!

[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.

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.
