Full replay of Jumps superstar OJU CHOSAN winning for the first time on the flat. Last raced on the flat in Nov 2013. Won past 9 straight Jumps races 5x G1s and US$5mil+ Jumping in between flat runs! (#6, blue hood with cheek pieces)

The crowd that came to see him run (in a 1-win, under $5m yen earnings conditions 2600m flat race)... !!! And he's seven!!! JRA top steeplechaser for 2016 & 2017!!!! I am running out of exclamation marks!!!! :lol:

It looks like Japanese racing has found a new speed-star on the dirt sprint, as Matera Sky(USA)[2014C. Speightstown(USA) x Mostaqeleh(USA) by Rahy(USA)] won the G3 Procyon Stakes 1400m dirt at Chukyo on July 8th 2018.
The US-bred colt broke the JRA record time by huge 1.2 second. :o :D
The late-bloomer was fifth in the G1 Dubai Golden Shaheen in March.

He's certainly developed into a nice colt. Early favorite for the Japan Cup Dirt. ;)
