One of the biggest races on Japanese calendar Sunday, the Japanese Derby. The favourite has a good record in this and while this year's fave has drawn the outside gate I still think he has a finshing burst good enough to win this. My numbers 18 Unrivaled, 2 Apres Un Reve, 16 Triumph March. I will be including a few in trifectas to fight out for 3rd including 13 at big odds with 11, 12, 1 and 3.

Yasuda Kinen News
Posted by Michele Cullen

    Armada and Sight Winner, Hong Kong’s two contestants in the 59th Yasuda Kinen, continue to thrive in Japan having switched to Tokyo racecourse, the scene of the fourth and final leg of the Asian Mile Challenge on Sunday.
    John Size was typically hands-on as both his charges prepared for the US$1.89m event at the Fuchu track with the trainer riding Sight Winner, successful last time out in the Champions Mile, and Eric Lin on Armada, runner-up in this race 12 months ago.   The work for both horses was very gentle.
    Size admitted that a look at the record showed Armada to be in better shape last year, at least when it came to races in Hong Kong and attributed a sub-par performance in the Champions Mile to the wet track on the day.
     “But,” the trainer said, “the horse improved after arriving in Japan last year and this year as well, so things are looking good in that respect. He has settled in very well and has regained what small weight he lost in transit.”
    As for Sight Winner, Size said “everything came together” when a surprise victor in the Champions Mile in April and the trainer was keen to point out that result was not a one-off occurrence.
     “He can go well here if he can settle just off the pace. Regardless of the draw, the horse was likely to take up a spot in fourth or fifth position. He takes his racing very well and he will give a good account of himself at the weekend.”
     News on the home-based runners continues to centre on Deep Sky and Vodka and both are reportedly working well.
    A possible outsider to note is Laurel Guerreiro, eighth in the Hong Kong Sprint in December. His breakthrough victory came most recently in the Takamatsunomiya Kinen, one of only two Gr.1 sprints on the Japanese calendar, and is expected to bid for a wire-to-wire success in the Yasuda.
      The 5-year-old has also turned in good performances over the Tokyo mile, including a second-place finish in the G1 NHK Mile Cup when he was three.

Great win.

Would've won by 3+ given a better passage in the straight.

The commentator said he'd keep his ears peeled after the race.   :biggrin:

Sometimes you hear commentators say as in a bunched finish "I don't where to look"

If ever there was a reason to say that it was at about the furlong (or maybe a little more) when I reckon there must have been any eight who could have been in front, with one way out wide.

I heard the commentator say, when mulling over the placings, "I think Faridat ran third" then added "well, I hope so"

I thought, "That's a comment hoping his call was vindicated" then thought to myself " Maybe he's talking through his kick".

Seems my secondary thought was right.   :biggrin:

Oh no, merely thinking about our US racing fans who take our pre race comments and selections, as the track upgrade meant I put Deep Sky in my top 3. In order I tipped 3, 4, 6. So was hoping the trifecta got up.

Oh, I don't go much on the camera work in the straight.

He did it yesterday, leaving the leaders and went searching for something else.

Same as Vodka's last win when he left the leaders and went searching for Vodka.

Maybe he had an excuse as the caller cried "And where is Vodka?" Fair enough that he went looking for her, and the result justified it, but at least he should have kept the leaders in view.

Just an opinion.

Vodka won by 7 lenths last start so I don't believe that is the race you are referring to. The cameraman goes by the Japanese call, no one hears our English coverage except overseas audiences. Agree though, the camera angles in general are not the best.

You're right, it wasn't Vodka.

It was Buena Vista.

Check that race out, it might be a coincidence, but as the English language cry "Where is Buena Vista" came out, the camera left the leaders.

Japan Declared Free Of Equine Influenza
Following news earlier this month that there will be no Japanese representation in this year's Gr1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) in November due to ongoing risk-importation assessment by bio-security officials, according to thoroughbrednews.com, the Japan Racing Association has announced that the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of the Government of Japan has reported to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) that Japan is now declared equine influenza-free. This is due to there being no new outbreak of EI in Japan "for one complete year". The report states that Dr. Koji Sato, JRA Presidential Counselor for Foreign Affairs said, "We are very happy to see Japanese government has officially declared us free of equine influenza stage. We have taken cautious steps to monitor thoroughbreds both in training and in breeding. We hope this declaration will help reinstate remaining suspended quarantine protocols and promote further international movement of horses." (Jul 21)
