I watched the race (what a treat to have Japanese racing on a Wednesday night!) and Time Flyer looked good. I was also impressed by the Kitten's Joy colt, Gendarme, who looks to have a bright future as well.

I wonder if Lucas should have stayed withdrawn as he was initially after his unspecified-but-minor training "incident"... worried about Trine, too, hoping that was just easing and not injury.

Stay Foolish impressed me the most, he's one to watch definitely. 8-)

Time Flyer is a very pretty boy, though. :mrgreen:

Like many Northern Dancer descendants have a very definite Northern Dancer type, there seems to be a Sunday Silence type in Japan. I like it.

Have none of these made their way back to the US?

Silent Name and Hat Trick, both by Sunday Silence, have stood or are standing in North America. Silent Name is at Adena Springs in Ontario, but I'm having a hard time finding out where Hat Trick is ATM.

ETA: Hat Trick is standing in Brazil for 2018.

Not much info there. :(
This stallion has really had his passport stamped a lot. It seems he started in Japan, then stood in Kentucky, shuttled to Australia, then Argentina, now Brazil. I don't know if he was returning to the US after all the shuttling. :?

Thanks champions for the memories!!

Interestingly, neither Copano Rickey nor Kitasan Black was ''Shadai horse''. :D
Both champions were bred by Yanagawa Bokujo (Farm), a small or medium and family-run farm at Hidaka District in Hokkaido.

Congratulations!!!

Nice photos. Very enjoyable. Kitasan Black has so much presence. I think he will fill out into a gorgeous stallion. And, from the photo of Copano Rickey's last race, he seems to have a low-headed running style that is reminiscent of A. P. Indy's way of going even though Rickey is not related to Indy.

Oh wow! Does that ever bring back memories. Golden SoCal days at Santa Anita and Hollywood Park. 1989...Sunday won the Derby and Preakness in the Spring. Secretariat died that October 4th. Sunday was named 3-year-old champion and HOTY. The great Bayakoa, trained by Ron McAnally, was named champion older female. Terrific year for SoCal racing. I began what would become a 25-year career in the auto industry. And my beloved German Wirehaired Pointer littermates, Annabelle and Wolf, were born on November 9th. The Berlin Wall came down that same day, November 9th. A momentous year for the world, horse racing, and for me personally.

By the way, laminitis took the lives of Secretariat, Sunday Silence and Bayakoa. When Red died, Penny Chenery rallied the industry, through the Grayson-Jockey Club Foundation, to work toward a cure. Today it was announced that laminitis survivor Lady Eli has been retired and will be bred to War Front. Laminitis survivor Paynter is at stud, and more horses are surviving this horrible disease. Yep, 1989 was a momentous year.

There's a conversation going on over in the What does "stamp his get" mean? thread, and IMHO Sunday' really did do that.
When you can see a grandson of a stallion that looks like his twin, I'd say Sunday' was stamping them like he was minting coins. ;) :lol:

Yes, this is a great example of stamping them.
