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.

I'll heartily second that. I could not be more grateful to Japanese breeders and owners for what they did for the great Sunday Silence.

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:

Today Deep Impact landed his 1500th JRA win, only the 6th stallion to do it and the fastest (7yrs, 5mo) besting King Kamehameha’s record time of 8yrs, 6mo & 26 days.

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

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.

Can I just say it was interesting trying to follow THREE chestnut fillies with white blazes through that race??? :lol: I wasn't quite sure at first who was Social Club, Rock This Town or Lucky Lilac and I knew who the winner was before I watched. :lol:

Whatever faults American racing may have, our colored saddle towels are wonderful. Wish the rest of the world would adopt them. :lol: Trying to follow horses in the huge Japanese fields is a strain on MY eyes, and their habit of having the camera scan back through the field during a race is not helpful. :?
Why would you take the camera off the front of the field so you can show close-ups of the back markers? I can remember an instance when there was a potential foul by one of the front runners, but no one in the TV audience could see it. Late charges, winning moves, close quarters...it often happens off-screen while the camera pans down the whole field.
Why? Why aren't we seeing the whole field at once? :roll:

When I've watched it's been a split screen, with the field on top (though from afar & small) while the camera pans down from front to rear. It does make it hard to see sometimes when a stalker starts their run, or if there's pinching/bumping/turbulence.

This time it didn't help, either, that all three fillies were in Sunday Racing silks and the only way to differentiate was by cap color (green, pink & white) or *if* you could see the number. :lol:

In my experience, there is often a split screen, but for only part of the race. When the field approaches/rounds the last turn, that split screen disappears. We are then 'treated' to the rundown of the whole field, from front to last, even though losing sight of the front runners is not, IMHO, a very good idea. :roll:
