I actually managed to stay up to watch it! Very game & determined run by Kiseki, and I was also impressed by Popocatepetl (mostly that the announcers managed to pronounce his name LOL! :lol: ) - he missed second by maybe a whisker. Not many grey Deep Impacts, so he was eye-catching in more ways than one. :mrgreen:

Is Kiseki from Rulership's first crop, tachyon? It doesn't seem like he retired THAT long ago...

Yes, Kiseki is from Rulership's first crop.
And Rulership is the leading second-crop sire of 2017 in Japan.
Out of the legendary racemare & broodmare Air Groove(JPN), the impeccably bred son of King Kamehameha is the only second-crop sire of 2017 in Japan who has been represented by a G1 winner.
Kiseki's classic victory here will cement Rulership's status as a major stallion standing at Shadai.

It's now likely that he will be voted the Japanese champion (HOTY) two years in a row.
Let's see what he does in the upcoming Japan Cup and Arima Kinen before he will retire from racing to stand at Shadai Stallion Station next year.
If he can win both, he will surpass the record for earnings set by TM Opera O.

Wow is right!!! Didn't think he was going to get running room and it is a credit to his turn of foot that even having to check & swing out & dive between horses he got up for an authoritative win! :mrgreen:

I read that Persian Knight is the first 3-yr-old to win the Mile Championship in 17 years...?!? Which makes his win even more impressive. :mrgreen:

Here's a bit of trivia:

Both the Sunday Silence daughters Orient Charm(JPN)(dam of Persian Knight) and Air Messiah(JPN)(dam of Air Spinel) ran in the G1 Shuka Sho, the final leg of the Japanese Triple Tiara in 2005.

-- replay of the Shuka Sho 2005

1st. #10 Air Messiah(JPN) F3 Sunday Silence(USA) x Air Deja Vu(JPN)
2nd. #5 Rhein Kraft(JPN) F3 End Sweep(USA) x Must be Loved(JPN)
3rd. #11 Nishino Nurse Call(JPN) F3 Brian's Time(USA) x Noble de Nord(JPN)
4th. #6 Orient Charm(JPN) F3 Sunday Silence(USA) x Nikiya(USA)

http://www.jbis.jp/race/result/20051016 ... 1504932591


Rhein Kraft(JPN) won the first leg Oka Sho.
Cesario(JPN)(by Special Week) won the second leg Japanese Oaks.
That was a vintage year.
