I suggest if you love elite Horseracing for 3 year olds in May carrying 126 pounds

watch the replay of the Japanese Derby 12f on Turf from Last Night 5/30/21 with

a field of 17 with outstanding Historical pedigrees drug free with the 12f winning time in

2:22 and change ,I can say its the best 3 yr. old grade 1 race 3 yr olds carrying 126 in

May in my memory. Last place (17th) 3 yr old time was 2:24 and change.

What are these 3 yr olds going to look like in the fall ?

Got to admit. In a large field like this and  holding a Tri ticket; watching the closing unfold and having the right horses underneath and the time and distance to the wire narrowing...

Like the hokie pokie.. That's what it's all about!

Like we said yesterday, that was a very strong race, overall & a scintillating finish for the top 5 who finished within a long length of one another.  Best 3 year old race of the year for the entire planet by a whole lot, IMO.

I was rooting hard for Satono Reinas (#16) the filly, to beat those boys.  She came really close after racing up near the pace, wide for the entire race.  What an effort!

Spectacular racing is the norm in Japan.  The race horses come first, last & always.  The fan base is incredible over there, as well.

I would like to thank you Steve and Winter for the heads up when it was race day.

The announcers on the Twin Spires feed said it was a new track record.
the winning time was about 10 lengths faster then Big Reds Record on dirt

2:22 and change for about 12 furlongs.
