Another front-running win by the fabulous Kitasan Black! He has such a strong combo of speed and stamina, as well as being a great-looking horse. I know he's fairly tall, but looks even more so with his high head carriage.
I imagine his book is going to be stuffed full next spring. :D

Looks like Queens Ring for second, Cheval Grand for third & Suave Richard fourth but they were only a head apart so that might not stand...

I was so worried when Kitasan led the whole way just like the Japan Cup but there was no catching him today! He goes out a hero!!!!

Rouge Buck made it up for fifth after running last for most of the race... second/third waiting for the photo.

Kitasan Black is a magnificent looking horse and a great racehorse. The Japanese are breeding some incredible horses. Instead of breeders coming here to the US to buy horses, I would love it if American breeders bought some quality Japanese stock to infuse into Thoroughbreds here.
