Re: The War Emblem thread

I agree that 1600m is probably too short for Testament considering his last race. He still finished 4th. I didn't think Improvise ran a bad race either - probably one of the shorter distances he has run as well? How is Civil War doing? Is he running in the Japan Cup Dirt? Civil War has finished sec...

Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

Tachyon: As far as Sunday Silence sons on the racetrack go, how did Japanese fans rate Fuji Kiseki? Watching his races, there was some SERIOUS talent there and even in that first start you could see he was a class above anything else. The reach and propulsion to his stride was something to see, esp...

And 1600m was too short?

Re: The Japan Cup(G1)

It was so close and TVG cut off before the results were posted. I found the results on Racing Post. Gentildonna won for the first repeat in history. The 3 yo filly Denim and Ruby was 2nd, Tosen Jordan 3rd. It was very exciting for me, not so much for my cat, haha. I tuned into TVG a bit too late (h...

I saw him race here in Southern California, and was lucky to be up close to him a few times. But it sur...

Re: Pants On Fire to run in the Japan Cup Dirt(G1)

In Japan, many fans believe that JRA made a huge mistake when they moved this event to Hanshin Racecourse 1800m from Tokyo Racecourse 2100m i...
