A black was racing at Marquis Downs about 3 years ago, I think owned by a very small time owner. He wasn't very fast, but he carried himself like a parade horse. I should dig around and get his name.

Thanks for the heads up on TCH. He's been in my VS for awhile so seeing a pic is icing on the cake.

Here's another black from yesterday:

Let me double-post this pick of Improvise(JPN)[2010 black colt. War Emblem(USA) x Cadenza(JPN) by Sunday Silence(USA)] I came across today. This pick was taken as he was working at Miho Training Center last year.
Improvise finished third in a G3 stakes at Nakayama today.
He is a beauty. :D

Thanks for sharing this; he really is quite striking.

And interestingly when I look at him I see both War Emblem and Sunday Silence.

Rosa Gigantea(JPN) is one of three Kazuo Fujisawa trainees that have been nominated to inaugural runnings of
G1 races on Stars & Stripes Day July 5 at Belmont Park.

After his disappointing tenth finish in the G1 Satsuki Sho, Rosa Gigantea is set to run in the G1 NHK Mile on Sunday.
I hope he will do well this Sunday to stamp himself as a legitimate shipper to the US.

Kazuo Fujisawa trained Casino Drive(USA) some years ago.

He's coming to the US? I would think he would do very well here -- aside from Mr Speaker there aren't too many three-year-olds in the turf division that are worth writing home about.

I don't know yet...
Rosa Gigantea finished 4th in the G1 NHK Mile Cup at Tokyo today.

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=298&start=90#p47936

I guess that Fujisawa really wants to take his horse to the inaugural Belmont Derby. The trainer might always feel that he left something at Belmont Park. Casino Drive scratched from the Belmont Stakes due to injury in 2008.
Rosa Gigantea was rather impressive in his fast closing 4th place finish coming from dead last and very wide off his stumble at the gate. But I'm not sure if his effort today was convincing enough for his owner as well as for NYRA.
First of all, the Belmont Derby is an invitational race.
The horse has to be selected by NYRA to earn his starting gate.
Fujisawa also wants to take Satono Ferrari (C3 by Deep Impact) and Bounce Shasse (F3 by Zenno Rob Roy) to the Belmont Derby and the Belmont Oaks, respectively, if they are selected.

I watched the NHK Mile last night, and I thought Rosa Gigantea's run was very impressive. He charged from last to come within a head of the winner...the finish had a half-dozen horses in the photo at the finish...so I think his fourth was better than it sounds.
Hopefully, NYRA will want Japanese horses in the field to increase the race's international cred, and the colt, as a Sunday Silence grandson, will give the announcers something to build interest with the audience. Also doesn't hurt that the horse is big and gorgeous.
