Lady Mamba (War Front/Siren Serenade)
Malibu Model (1/2 to McKinzie)
Achira (dam is full to Giacomo)
Golden Kitten (full to Big Blue Kitten)
Golden Age (Bernardini/Vision in Gold)
Achira won comfortably over Lady Mamba. Golden Age was way last. Didn't see where the other 2 wound up.

But...the most impressive debut winner in JRA today was Grand Fort(JPN), 2015C. Heart's Cry(JPN) x Killer Graces(USA) by Congaree(USA). :D :D

I was a biiiiiiiiiiiig fan of Congaree.
And I am now rooting for this MASSIVE colt who I think could be something special. :D

He's gorgeous! Does Japan still have a Kentucky Derby prep to come that this impressive three-year-old could run in?

Santa Anita: Lifeline wins comeback in Sunday's seventh
A 4-year-old, Lifeline has won 2 of 4 starts. He won a maiden race at 1 1-8 miles on turf in his second start on April 1, 2017 but was a well-beaten fourth in an optional claimer on dirt on April 29 last year. Lifeline was diagnosed with a bone chip in a knee after that race which kept him off the track until Sunday.

Lifeline is trained by Richard Mandella for owners and breeders Marty and Pam Wygod. Mandella said after Sunday's race he remains hopeful Lifeline can develop into a turf marathon stakes runner this year.

Lifeline finished 1st by 3/4 lengths, on January 21, 2018, at SANTA ANITA PARK in Race 7.
Off odds: 2.40

The final leg for the ''Japan Road to the Kentucky Derby'' will be the Hyacinth Stakes 1600m dirt at Tokyo in February.
Epicharis won it last year.
I don't know yet if Grand Fort will be pointed to this prep race next, though.

Thanks for the info. I hope we get to see Grand Fort in the Hyacinth. Or maybe his connections will be ambitious and try the UAE Derby at Meydan.

She did well to overcome as bad a start she had! One to keep an eye on for sure.

The 2 year old full sister to the #BeastFromTheEast; MAURICE; has been named.

Here's MARNI (Screen Hero x Mejiro Frances).
Marni means 'Rejoice' in Hebrew

Attractive filly for sure but so much less white than her brothers.

I think the boys take after their grandsire, Carnegie (IRE) with the bay/bling. I haven't been able to find any photos of Mejiro Frances so it's hard to tell if maybe the filly is more like her dam...?

ETA: The granddam, Mejiro Monterey, was also dark bay with some white markings...

Does anyone have any updates on Chasing Yesterday, the now 2 year old half to American Pharoah by Tapit? I know Summer Wind was keeping her but that's about it.

Here are the picks of Mejiro Frances(JPN) that were taken in 2015 with her Screen Hero(JPN) colt Lucas(JPN) and Mr. & Mrs. Togawa.

at Togawa Bokujo, a family-run small farm at Hidaka District in Hokkaido.

Mejiro Frances died unfortunately in 2016 immediately after she gave birth to her Screen Hero filly.
I strongly hope that Marni(JPN) will do well.

Oh, thank you for the pics of Mejiro Frances & Lucas, tachyon. How sad that she died from foaling complications - she was a beautiful mare. We are lucky to have Maurice & Lucas from her, and hopefully Marni will do well too.

Dreaming of Jo Jo (Malibu Moon out of the recently-deceased Dreaming of Anna) just won the 9th at Gulfstream, a 5 1/2-furlong maiden claiming for 3yo. A $12,500 maiden claiming. :shock: :oops:
