Painting the Sky just finished 3rd in the 8th at Delta. If the wildly-colored filly had just changed leads, she might have made it into 2nd.

If I'm reading the translation correctly, it looks like White Dragon (bred by Patchen Wilkes Farm, sent to Japan in 2015) won at Kyoto on Feb 5...

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. ;)

Thank you for the correct information, tachyon :mrgreen:

I see the winner is by Rulership... do you know if his first racing crop are three-year-olds? Did he get winners at two?

Here below is the 2016 First-season-sires ranking in JRA.
Rulership was the best of the 23 stallions whose crop made their debuts last year.

1st. Rulership(JPN) (King Kamehameha)
2nd. I'll Have Another(USA) (Flower Alley)

IIRC, that would be Summer Bird's last crop. :(
His untimely death was a real loss for racing.

Shironii, full brother to Buchiko, won today by abt half a length. 8-) Kokura race 10, I think at a mile? The chart is here: http://japanracing.jp/en/racing/result/

I love his 'eyeliner.' :D
Sometimes, when a white horse has pale/blue eyes, the eyes can seem a bit small, even 'piggy.'

Not sure who the sire is (Tosen Homareboshi...? if I'm reading it right?), but here is Madre Bonita (JPN)'s 2017 foal:

WOW! Another CLASSIC splash white foal. Interesting to see another just a year after the Bodemeister colt from last year.

Splish splash! I love his kiddo.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!

Love all the chrome on that Madre Bonita baby. Quite the looker. :D

I also like those halters they put on their foals because they fit better than the leather ones.

Shironii was a very good 4th in his first try on grass in the Wakaba Stakes at Hanshin:
