I think that he had a nice prep toward the G1 NHK Mile Cup 1600 m turf at Tokyo May 6th. :D

-- replay of the G2 New Zealand Trophey, the trial race of the G1 NHK Mile Cup, from which top three finishers get automatic berths into the latter.

Thank you so much tachyon, It was so exciting. I found the pink silks and tried to follow him all the way,it was like watching his mom. He will do just great in the G1! I am so excited, just can’t wait. it is so amazing to see the races there, the horses seem to be so well behaved. Thank you tachyon for sending us the replays and the amazing pictures of Keiai and Keiai, and all the others. Be blessed.....dks. Am so proud of all Smarty’s grandkids and kids racing in Japan.

Keiai's jockey was switched to Yusuke Fujioka for today as Yutaka Take has been suspended.
Good luck to him!!

Thank you tachyon so very much, I am so excited and he was just awesome and his jockey also. I sent this to be posted on Smarty’s Facebook so all his fans can see it and As he was coming down the stretch I had tears in my eyes, just thinking that it was Keiai’s little boy just following his mama’s racing. Thank you so much. I went to see my
granddaughter’s ballet recital last night so I was a little late seeing this. She as so good, I am so proud of her. You are so nice to send us this, we all appreciate you and thank you for all you do for us. Be blessed.....dks

Hi Jane, I'm so happy for Keiai Gerbera, her son Keiai Nautique and their connections. :D :D :D
Let me repost Keiai Gerbera's PPs I made when she retired from racing.
It was more than six years ago.
Time really flies....

I'm not sure if all Smaty fans remember this.
But, as you may see in the PPs above, Keiai Gerbera did not seem to like left-handed course.
Keiai Gerbera had many fans followings in Japan and most of us remember that Keiai Gerbera was a right-hander.
That's one of the reasons why we worried a bit about her son Keiai Nautique's fitness to the NHK Mile Cup that was run at the left-handed course at Tokyo. He was a 12/1.
But he handled it beautifully!!!!
We don't know yet where he willl be pointed to next.
He will take his summer vacation.
Her jockey Yusuke Fujioka, who grabbed his first G1 title with Keiai Nautique , commented, this colt may get extra distance without problem. ;)

Thanks tachyon, some of us did remember but Nautique did not have that problem and we were so grateful for that. Glad he is taking a rest, he certainly deserves it!! Hope he can go longer that would be awesome. Thanks tachyon, Be blessed....dks
