Just love Orfevre babies!
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

It's official.
Oka Sho winner Almond Eye(JPN) (Lord Kanaloa) will be pointed to the Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks) after all.

At the time I didn't know what kind of game it would be like but since I recently found out about the show I am giving the first two episodes a watch. What I did find out prior to watching via wiki is that all the horse girls are named after and based on famous Japanese race horses. I recognized about half to 3/4 of the names.
The main character is Special Week, and on her first day heading for the training academy she attends a race won by Silence Suzuka. One thing I'm noticing so far is the attention to detail - Silence Suzuka is a redhead and wears a white headband with green ears and a little decorative green and yellow ball - which I immediately recognised:

Similarly, Special Week has dark brown hair and a streak of white in her bangs (I assume to reference the blaze) and wears purple and white hair accessories.
They also replicated/respected Silence Suzuka's run style in the first race they've shown so far!

The concept is a little bit odd, but anyway I thought it was a cute nod to Japanese legends of the turf.

First three finishers in the upcoming Yushun Himba (Japanese Oaks) will be granted automatic berths with entry fees waived and assistance to travel costs to the G1 Prix Vermeille at Longchamp Sep 14th this year.
I suspect that these will become attractive incentives to those horses who are considering their trips to Longchamp.
Lucky Lilac(JPN)(Orfevre) has already been nominated to the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Oct 7th, too.
