She was very green, intimidated & tired in the stretch... but she had the lead for a little bit anyway. Better luck next time!

Interesting quote from her trainer:

“She’s a bit of a talker,” said Callaghan. “You can’t walk into the barn without her saying hello or greeting you. She used to scream all the time, yelling at her friends when they came in and out, but with the consistent training I think she’s matured a bit. But you can’t sneak into the barn. If I forget something and the barn is quiet and I have to go down the shed row she’s like the police, she alerts everybody. She’s not quite as loud anymore, but she definitely gives you a little call. I feel like I know her communication. From her ‘hello’ when you walk in, to yelling at her friend, to ‘you need to feed me now’ – she has different nickers for all those, which is pretty funny. She’s very intelligent. She looks different, and she acts different.”

That's a nice photo. 8-)

It was not Zenya but his son Teruya who discovered the talent of Northern Taste(CAN) at the Saratoga yearling sale in 1972.

I recall Zenya and Teruya Yoshida saying multiple times in interviews that Shadai wouldn't be what it is without Northern Taste. The money from his stud fees allowed them to purchase Sunday Silence, who then allowed them to spend over $100,000,000 in 10 years on broodmares.

Plus Sunday Silence nicked really well with Northern Taste mares, getting 12% stakes winners.

Godolphin's Face It, a 1/2 to It's Tricky, deserves a mention.

How striking. Orewa Matteruze, I remember, had the stockings that were unusual for Sunday Silence progeny but I had forgotten about his gulastra plume.

Hau Nani (JPN) was third in her first race, won by Midshipman colt Seiun Spy (JPN).

Don't think she would've caught the other two, but she also did run somewhat greenly down the stretch. A very impressive stretch duel between the top pair!

She didn't really settle at the start either she seemed eager. Hopefully she's learned from this experience going forward! And yes the top two are ones to watch I'd say :)
