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I wonder if Lucas should have stayed withdrawn as he was initially after his unspecified-but-minor training "incident"...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. :?

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.
