Now that's a horse that could win by a neck. . . :D
Ugh, Go for the Summit has been withdrawn from the Belmont Derby Invitational, as the cargo company Nippon Cargo Airlines suspended flights due to maintenance discrepancies. :shock:

That's a shame... and I suppose it's too late to arrange for another carrier? :(

Mikki Rocket(JPN), 2013H. King Kamehameha(JPN) x Moneycantbuymelove(IRE) by Pivotal(GB), captured his first G1 title in the all-star Takarazuka Kinen 2200m turf at Hanshin on June 24th 2018.
His jockey Ryuji Wada scored his first G1 vicotry in 17 years since the 2001 Tenno Sho (Spring) with the champion T.M. Opera O(JPN).
I was impressed by the Hong Kong raider Werther(NZ), too!!!

Wow Mikki Rocket got a perfect trip, held on for a heck of a finish! I really thought Werther was going to catch him... Vivlos was right there too, if she hadn't gotten bunched up with the Satonos mid-pack and had to go wide she might have been closer. Satono Diamond kicked free but couldn't sustain his run.

I hope Werther comes back for more races, he's definitely one to watch!! :mrgreen:

It looks like Japanese racing has found a new speed-star on the dirt sprint, as Matera Sky(USA)[2014C. Speightstown(USA) x Mostaqeleh(USA) by Rahy(USA)] won the G3 Procyon Stakes 1400m dirt at Chukyo on July 8th 2018.
The US-bred colt broke the JRA record time by huge 1.2 second. :o :D
The late-bloomer was fifth in the G1 Dubai Golden Shaheen in March.

He's certainly developed into a nice colt. Early favorite for the Japan Cup Dirt. ;)

Oju Chosan(JPN) is slated to run next in the Kujukuri Tokubetsu 2500m turf allowance Sep 22nd at Nakayama as a prep for the G1 Arima Kinen Dec 23rd at the same course and same distance.
He received an offer for the French G1 Prix du Cadran (4000m turf flat) on Oct recently. :o
But his owner has declined it as he wants to keep the horse on course for the biggest all-star race in Japan.
And his trainer commented, ''If he runs well in the Arima Kinen, then we may consider a trip to overseas.''
