There are some horses who want to race upfront in this field.
If a hot pace develops, this race can be set up for the closers.
It's going to be very interesting to see how Iwata rates his filly Fan Dii Na.
If she can relax, wherever she settles in, she will blow away the boys.

Suave Richard looks good in the walking ring... and now I'm waffling on Persian Knight, but it's his first time at the distance so I dunno...

Looking forward to an exciting race! 8-)

...wow. :shock: Everything as expected, until... it wasn't.

11 - 7 - 10 - 16 - 5 flashing on the tote board, unofficial

Rey de Oro up for 5th, I think? Fan Dii Na put in a good run & was right there in the closing meters, just didn't have enough.

ETA: first group 1 win for the jockey + a race record

It's interesting to see that a couple of horses have already run (and won) over 2,000m before the end of April of their third year. The Japanese don't joke around when it comes to stamina.
Wins in stakes record time!

I thought she ran well, too.
Was that the distance?
She is expected to run in the Oaks next.

The commentators equated the 1m+ in Japanese Yen to be equivalent to about $10,000 (unsure if they meant US or AUS dollars? but it's still a lot!!!)

Fan Dii Na was really worked up before the race, with TVG's Candace pointing out how sweaty she was. I never saw her settle during that lengthy walk-in-a-circle thing that the Japanese horses do before heading to the gate.
She was prancing, jigging sideways, ducking her head and pulling against the rider's restraint. I suspect she burned off too much energy just fretting, and may have blunted her ability to stay in the stretch drive.

Well the tri didn't really hold up, but nice to see Al Ain win. Surprised that he went off as the ninth pick, when he really hasn't done much wrong. His dam was about as speedy as speedy as they come, looks like the cross with Deep Impact gave him the best of both worlds.

I also really just liked his name :lol:
