Suave Richard is a handsome fellow, and Heart's Cry is so reminiscent of his sire in that photo. Thanks so much for keeping us updated, Tachyon.

Suave Richard's dam was really bred for success on dirt tracks. Interesting to see names like Unbridled's Song and General Meeting so close up for a grade I winner on the grass.

The amount of success Japan has had with what are assumed to be dirt pedigrees makes me wonder if there is such a thing as a just-dirt or just-turf bloodline.

I feel like when you buy the best 'dirt' pedigrees and race the resulting progeny on turf 95% of the time, the cream is going to rise to the top regardless.

I mean, almost all of the top JRA races are on turf, and if your horse has a chance to be competitive in those, why bother trying the dirt (or technically sand).

I was away for the weekend and didn't see the race, but I see that Gold Actor was last and distanced. tachyon, do you know if he just tired and is okay, or was he injured? :(

Oh good, and thank you for letting us know. He tried to be competitive early and I was worried when he labored so much to finish. Glad he will get a good rest!

We all hope that he will be retired to stud right now.
But it's now too late for this breeding season....

I don't know if this has been shown here before. I watched it the other night. I really enjoyed watching it and is about an hour long. In the video it says even the Japanese breeders weren't keen on using Sunday Silence when he first arrived in Japan, as they didn't like the looks of him. But they changed their minds when his first crop made it to the track.

That video has been posted before though I can't remember if it was in this specific thread :D
And yeah I remember them mentioning breeders were hesitant because of his stifle.

Oju Chosan(JPN), 2011H. Stay Gold(JPN) x Shadow Silhouette(JPN) by Symboli Kris S(USA), won his third consecutive Nakayama Grand Jump easily despite facing setbacks earlier this year with minor health problems that forced him to pass up an intended prep start before his history-making challenge in extending his J-G1 winning streak to five.
His dominating victory this year broke the previous race record set Up to Date(JPN) in 2015 by 3.6 seconds.

There had been a succesful nick between Stay Gold and Mejiro McQueen mare, which produced the likes of Orfevre and Gold Ship etc.
Does Orfevre now form a strong nick with Forty Niner line mare?

A mare named Chi Omega had a beautiful California Chrome filly on April 9. Her dam, the G1 winner Joyful Victory, is bred similarly to Refinement, the granddam of Lucky Lilac.

Chi Omega is by Tapit from the Seattle Slew sire line through A.P. Indy. Joyful Victory's maternal granddam was by Alydar.

Since we don't see Alydar too often in top pedigrees anymore, I think it's exciting to see him in the pedigrees of Orfevre's champion filly and the lovely new Chrome filly. Video of the Chrome filly: https://www.facebook.com/lisa.mathes.3/ ... 78888/?t=1
