Thank you! He was closing fast and galloped our past the winner. Any idea when/ where he’ll run next?

At this time it's not clear. I'm not sure if they're going to prep him and bring him over for the Belmont or keep him home with a possible campaign towards the BC.

Lucky Lilac(JPN) has made a winning sophomore debut in the G2 Tulip Sho 1600m turf at Hanshin on March 3rd 2018, extending her unbeaten record to 4 for 4.
She will definitely be sent off the favorite in the G1 Oka Sho (Japanese 1000 Guneas) in April, as she looks even bigger and stronger than last year.

2nd. (#4) Mau Lea(JPN) (Deep Impact x Buy the Cat, by Storm Cat)
3rd.(9) Lily Noble(JPN) (Rulership x Pure Chaplet, by Kurofune)

Lucky Lilac(JPN) is set to run as the favorite in the G1 Oka Sho (Japanese 1000 Guineas) today.
Can she become the first 2yo champion & undefeated filly to win the Oka Sho in 61 years?
Major concerns are her post position #1 and her jockey who lacks in the experience.
There has been no filly who won this race from the rail since 1994 and no horse who finished in quinella since 2007 after the renovation of Hanshin Course.
And a lot of talented fillies will try to beat her, of course.

Rooting for Lucky Lilac to beat history, but I wouldn't be mad if Dernier Or came in strong!

I have just reviewed the replay.
Lemaire didn't use his whip to fly past the rivals.
Lemaire said after the race that his horse would win the Triple Tiara.
Nice to see young stallions do well, too.

Wow! That move was reminiscent of the type of Last to First moves Special Week was capable of (and also the Last to First moves I sometimes make playing Champion Jockey :lol: )
Kind of a heartbreaker for Lucky Lilac she nailed her at the last second but Almond eye is a spectacular filly!
Tachyon do you know if they will point to the Yushun Himba?
