Cablegram(JPN)(4C. Deep Impact x Ginger Punch) was second.
Win time was a very quick 2:23.8, the fastest time in 10 years for the event.
This is definitely a firm turf.

-- Tokyo Yushun review (JRA)

http://japanracing.jp/_news2017/pdf/170528.pdf
This marked trainer
Kazuo Fujisawa’s 26th JRA-G1 victory following last week’s Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks) title with Soul
Stirring and his first classic title for colts. He is the fifth trainer—first in 13 years—to win both the Oaks and Derby
in the same year. For jockey Christophe Lemaire, this win marked an impressive three-week G1 winning streak,
which includes the Victoria Mile with Admire Lead and Yushun Himba with Soul Stirring. He is the second jockey
since Olivier Peslier in 2001 to do so. This was his first Derby win and 13th G1 victory. He is also the fifth
jockey—first in 42 years—to win both the Oaks and the Derby in the same year.
Kazuo Fujisawa reportedly said to Lemaire after the race; ''I thougfht Olivier Peslier was the best (French) jockey. But you are better than him.''

King Kamehameha over Symboli Kris S is my kind of pedigree. And that final time...

Symboli Kris S(USA) is doing very well as a broodmare sire. :D
He is currently 3rd in the Broodmare Sire Rankings in Japan this year to date, following Sunday Silence(USA) and French Deputy(USA).

Derby 3rd Admirable's dam's sire is Symboli Kris S, too.

Rey de Oro(JPN) will make his first start since the Derby in the G2 Kobe Shimbun Hai 2400m turf for 3yos at Hanshin today.
He might not be 100% today off his Summer vacation and his main target is set for the Japan Cup later this year (he will bypass the Kikuka Sho for 3yos).
But I hope to see some solid performance from the son of King Kamehameha here before his clash with the older rivals like Kitasan Black(JPN)(Black Tide) & Satono Crown(JPN)(Marju) and the 3yo filly Soul Stirring(JPN)(Frankel) and so on.

I saw that conformation pic up a few days ago, he has certainly matured! He looks fabulous.

But I wonder if anyone will be able to handle Mr. Kitasan Black??? Recently back into training but omg he looks like beast mode!!

Kitasan Black is one of the most magnificent TBs I've ever seen. Paint that white star black and he would be the perfect 'actor' for a new movie about Walter Farley's The Black.

That was a great race all around for Rey d'Oro! And I thought Danburite did really well too, he fought back though he tired at the finish. 8-) Thanks for the replay tachyon! :mrgreen:

That's not exactly true. The Sheikh who bred Shetan (The Black) was trying to achieve the perfect racehorse, both fast and of great endurance, to win the cross-country race that figures so prominently in Return of the Black Stallion.
IIRC, his dam was a lovely grey Arabian mare ridden by the Sheikh's daughter. I got the impression that the top line of the pedigree, however, had TB blood introduced to get that perfect racehorse. After all, the stallion was 17 hands, so....
He still shouldn't have been allowed to race under American Jockey Clubs rules, of course, which is why that race against Cyclone and Sun Raider was set up as a match race. No ordinary, "official" rules. ;)
Mr. Farley never really explained away The Black's checkered pedigree past in the books, and his offspring were allowed to go on to win the Derby (Black Minx) and Triple Crown (Satan). It was 1947, so maybe the JC registration rules weren't a detail that he thought his readers cared much about.
Speaking as a reader who had almost every book in the long series, IMHO he was probably right. :lol:

The Japanese Derby runner-up Suave Richard(JPN)[C3. Heart's Cry(JPN) x Pirramimma(USA) by Unbridled's Song(USA)] won impressively the G2 Copa Republica Argentina 2500m turf at Tokyo Nov 5th 2017 in his first start since the Derby, demolishing older horses.
Now, how good is Rey de Oro?????

Suave Richard will not be pointed to the Japan Cup in three weeks but to the Arima Kinen in December. :|
