1st. #10 Adam Barows(JPN) (Heart's Cry x Chacharino by Unbridled's Song)
2nd. #8 Eclair Sparkle(JPN) (Heart's Cry x Pretty Carina by Seeking the Gold)
4th. #11 Shironii(JPN) (King Kamehameha x Shirayukihime by Sunday Silence)

Yes, Shironii ran a decent 4th in that competitive field. :D
The Wakaba Stakes is one of the key lead-up races (trial races) for the G1 Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas), from which top two finishers earn automatic berths into the Satsuki Sho.

That was not Shironii's first test but second test on the turf.

His jockey Andrasch Starke commented after the race that Shironii might return to the dirt in his next time out.
He can handle the turf, but he has to be stronger on the dirt.

Pretty girl. Shame that, like most of the North American dominant whites...she's not bred to run.
Seriously.....why would anyone stand that stallion at stud?

I mean... I'm not saying he's the best stallion in the world by any stretch, but he's FAR from the top of the list of horses who shouldn't be standing. I was a fan of his while he was running, and he was a very cool, hard-knocking type, and a multiple stakes winner on the toughest/best circuit in the country. Looks like he's sired some stakes horses in Canada and was leading sire in BC in 2015. Could you do better? Sure. But you could also do a LOT worse.

Second in Command is a solid sire in BC. It's the dam's side that isn't bred to run.

Rare white Thoroughbred born in New York
Image
An unusually marked, mostly white colt from the last crop sire Lucky Pulpit was foaled on May 19 at Stone Bridge Farm in Gansevoort, N.Y. in ongoing fulfillment of a dream sparked in owner/breeder Gary Tolchin when he attended races with his father as a youth.

The colt was delivered by the white mare, Passionforfashion by Old Fashioned, who Tolchin acquired privately last year after a lengthy search for a white Thoroughbred.

“I always wanted a white horse after I saw one at Aqueduct with my father, Sam Tolchin, when I was growing up," he said. "My goal is to continue breeding white horses.”

Tolchin said he intends to keep the newborn colt and eventually place him in training for racing.

Rick Bailey, registrar of The Jockey Club, said it is too soon to determine what color the colt officially will be given when registered. His coloring is similar, although a bit more splashed with chestnut, to that of Passionforfashion’s dam, the registered white Trust N Luck mare Turf Club, who also had liberal chestnut markings. Turf Club died earlier this month due to nagging gastrointestinal issues.

She's bold and a lovely mover in addition to being visually "Wow!" Good luck to Indigo Farm's Jan Durrschmidt with this beauty.@nytbreeders

She is stunning. Even if you made her a plain brown with no white at all, she still has a beautifully-proportioned and strong body and a head like an Arabian.
I'm glad her eyes are dark and I love her red topknot. 8-)

I associate traditional medicine hat/war bonnet paints with tovero markings, which don't show up in TBs...but this dominant white version is awfully cute, anyhow. :D
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

Yeah this is correct, a "true", full medicine hat also has a medicine shield on the chest (apron) and on its flanks.

Thanks for the clarification on Medicine Hat markings. Oh well, I shall close my eyes and imagine her with the apron and flank patches! :)

White Dragon(USA) 3C (Cowboy Cal) was second in his second try on Feb 5th after his 3rd place finish on debut Dec 23rd. Both starts were on the yielding turf. 2-M-1-1.

I would think that he will break his maiden soon. ;)

Beautiful white horses. If either White Dragon or Casta Diva are looking for a second career in a year or so, they'd make fine mounts for an Emperor. I believe that Japan may be crowning a new Emperor soon and, IIRC, pure white horses were the favored mount for such momentous occasions.

VICTORY FOR RARE KIWI FILLY
Unique New Zealand-bred filly Casta Diva has posted her first winning strike in Japan.

The white daughter of High Chaparral was successful over 2600m at Hakodate in her third race day appearance.

Casta Diva was bred by Windsor Park Stud and was sold by them during New Zealand Bloodstock's 2016 Premier Sale session at Karaka to the Dearest Club for $450,000.

She is out of the winning Zabeel mare The Opera House, a three-quarter sister to the former two-time Australian Horse of the Year Might And Power.

The Opera House's white Shamexpress colt sold earlier this year for $510,000 to the China Horse Club and Ciaron Maher Bloodstock.
