-- replay of the Wakaba Stakes (Listed) (full version)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TooYtP_P0Bo
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.
