3 time visitor Vivlos has been a true Dubai star, winning the Dubai Turf in 2017 and finishing 2nd in the '18 edition, she will surely be close again. Her most recent start was a superb performance into 2nd in the Hong Kong Mile behind Beauty Generation.

Hello and welcome! The Oka Sho looks very exciting!

I think I'll be rooting for Danon Fantasy, but I really like Schon Glanz and Gran Alegria too. :mrgreen:

Yes, to think Almond Eye won last year, also Gentildonna in 2012 and Daiwa Scarlet in 2007 and this could be Danon Fantasy's 5th winning streak.
Oka Sho's top 5 favorites are Danon Fantasy, Gran Alegria, Chrono Genesis, Beach Samba, Schon Glanz. I don't have any favorite now since I'm new into horse racing but I'm willing to learn.

On top of that, we will have Satsuki Sho next week.

LVSL is said to have resumed light excersise with rider up in February.
I haven't seen any update since then, though.
Many fans are eagerly waiting for his comeback and I will keep you posted Squeaky.

That gif looked familiar....except we used to see that action with a rider on his back, or with some poor stall handler trying to load him in the gate without getting killed. :oops: :P

It's nice to know there are gold ship fans out there. And if I remember correctly, his children will start debuting at the end of this year.
Oh this is another video of golshi and his neighbor https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OYh2xWLnRw

Tetsu-san's twitter!
His photos fulfill my weekly dose of golshi, thank you Tetsu-san.
Seeing him visits big red farm for almost every weekend, he's really a big fan of him.
There are some other golshi twitter but my favorite is golshi's ex caretaker's, https://twitter.com/TAKATOSHI_Gship
Just look at his likes tab for more golshi and keiba related tweets.
This is his latest visit to BRF
