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 second in the Urawa Kinen (Jpn2) 2000m dirt at Urawa on Nov 20.
He is not entered for the Japan Cup Dirt.

I am just catching up with War Emblem since Christmas. Was busy over the holidays and then on a short vacation recently. So happy to see the postings! :) So glad to see Improvise back in the winner's circle and so so proud of Civil War as well! War Emblem offspring winning on turf and dirt and at distances of 1600m to 2500m showing speed and stamina and all different styles. Awesome the way Tagano Emblem was flying at the end from last and easily won. Civil War easily won as well and they were both on the far outside not taking the path of least distance. Glad to see Improvise placed closer up in the shorter distance. Yay! I sure hope Civil War will be a stallion - he is such a great horse. Love that white mark/blaze looking like his daddy's. Thanks for all the great news Tachyon! :)

It's clear that War Emblem is a very good sire...his owners must be tearing their proverbial hair out trying to get him to impregnate more mares.

Too bad she had to start from post 16 in a short race. I saw she finished 7th. I will need to see the replay to see how she did. I also wonder if longer distances are better for her? I hope she/they find her niche and she returns to her winning form!

Here's the youtube video of the G3 Kyoto Himba Stakes.
I didn't think Robe Tissage ran a bad race off the layoff and the widest draw.
Let's hope she will do better next time!!

Any early babies from this group? Should be exciting - lots of excellent sires! I was wondering how Testament was doing and if he has raced recently?

Testament had a minor injury as he finished 4th in his second outing.
He is expected to come back in a few months.

Congrats to all the War Emblem 2010 crop winners (and seconds)!!! I am very excited about Improvise racing in graded company - I sure hope he does well! In his last win he was even restrained most of the race and still won. Thanks for the pictures! He is a beauty - are there any of his face without the blinkers on?

It was a nice win for Red Emblem - I like the shadow roll - does he have a star like WE? Any pictures?

I loved the win of Trans Am Star - gate to wire!

Shonan Daira had a very nice close second - almost for the win!

Meisun War - very nice win! - Also the shadow roll and star - any pics?

Godard - very nice win going away! - This one has a star as well - any pics?

Thanks so much Tachyon - I so enjoyed all of these races and the pictures! I hope they continue to do well!
