''Uma Musume'' now gets a lot of supports even from core racing fans as the anime is mostly based on historical events and trivias. :lol: :lol:

Ugh, Go for the Summit has been withdrawn from the Belmont Derby Invitational, as the cargo company Nippon Cargo Airlines suspended flights due to maintenance discrepancies. :shock:

Mikki Rocket(JPN), 2013H. King Kamehameha(JPN) x Moneycantbuymelove(IRE) by Pivotal(GB), captured his first G1 title in the all-star Takarazuka Kinen 2200m turf at Hanshin on June 24th 2018.
His jockey Ryuji Wada scored his first G1 vicotry in 17 years since the 2001 Tenno Sho (Spring) with the champion T.M. Opera O(JPN).
I was impressed by the Hong Kong raider Werther(NZ), too!!!

Wow Mikki Rocket got a perfect trip, held on for a heck of a finish! I really thought Werther was going to catch him... Vivlos was right there too, if she hadn't gotten bunched up with the Satonos mid-pack and had to go wide she might have been closer. Satono Diamond kicked free but couldn't sustain his run.

I hope Werther comes back for more races, he's definitely one to watch!! :mrgreen:
