I love how complete your posts always are for these races. However the same picture appears twice for Cadenas and Suave Richard ;)
I'm all in on Fan Dii Na!

And there are some striking looking horses in here. Outliers, Satono Ares, Rey de Oro and Cadenas are stunning.

In case people don't know, there was or is a USAF base on Okinawa named Kadena AFB. I lived on Okinawa for 3 years.

Al Ain/Cadenas/Fan Dii Na

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.

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
