I watched the episode last night and I was really surprised about the result! (I was surprised when they announced in the previous result that El condor Pasa was even heading to the Derby)
I have to say Gold Ship’s quirky antics really are growing on me especially with regards to Meijiro McQueen had me giggling.

Excited for the Tenno Sho this weekend... aside from the bit where I don't know who to root for :lol:

In other news, what the heck is up with Al Ain...? Is he tired of being a racehorse, or just determined to become Gold Ship 2.0? :shock:

Rainbow Line(JPN)(Stay Gold) won the G1 Tenno Sho Spirng.
But his jockey Iwata dismounted soon after the race.
I hope that Rainbow Line is okay....

After the race, Rainbow Line was found to have lameness in his right foreleg and was transported without making a victory run.

''While our rivals were making early moves in the backstretch, my mount waited patiently, and I knew he had the
needed late kick to reach the front before the wire. I’m worried about the horse. I just hope he’ll be able to run in the next race.'' commented jockey Yasunari Iwata.

''It’s great that he was able to win the race but I'm concerned about his condition after the race. I hope to give him the best care as possible so that he can recover for his next race.'' added trainer Hidekazu Asami.

What a gallant run by the son of Stay Gold!
Get well soon, Rainbow Line, please!!!

Sooo close, Cheval Grand!
But tachyon, please keep us up to date about Rainbow Line, I hope it is just something benign like a temporary soreness. Get well soon!

Argh I fell asleep and missed it, but now I'm kind of glad I did because I would have worried about Rainbow Line all night. Such a shame, reports were he was working soooooo well. Please do let us know any updates you find about him, tachyon! :?

tachyon, can you tell us what this statement from the JRA says? The general translation I've seen is just "lameness in right foreleg" but everyone seems relieved so it seems not a terrible injury? But they aren't speaking in specifics so it's hard to know.

JRA made its official statement on that paper as follows:

Hidekazu Asami's comment:
''It’s great that he was able to win the race but I'm concerned about his condition after the race. I hope to give him the best care as possible so that he can recover for his next race.''

※The horse was diagnosed with lameness in his right front leg.

That JRA statement made us believe that his injury may not be life-threatening.
But we have to wait for follow-up reports...

His lameness is evident in these videos below... :(
