Re: The rise of Sunday Silence

Yes she is incredible. :D Both jockey Lemaire and trainer Kunieda commented in post-race interviews that Almond Eye was only 80% off her 5 months layoff. She has become Japan's most popular horse! :D https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DphMaf-UYAILLsf.jpg https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DpeDYfAVsAAdI5I.jpg http...

Re: Racing in Japan

I would love to see her take on the boys in the Japan Cup.
She is so cute and will be unbeatable.

Re: Racing in Japan

How much campaigning do you think is going on behind the scenes for Yoshida to return to Japan. ;) :D Personally I do NOT hope that Yoshida will come back to Japan even for a race, haha.

Gold Actor has always been an attractive animal and his pedigree is rather unique. I hope he is well supported at stud.
Me too!! :D
I hope that Gold Actor is going to be one of the leading successors of the underdog Screen Hero along with Maurice. ;)
