14 year old Sakura Shiny (Sakura President x Sakura Future, by Sakura Yutaka O) went out a winner on New Year's Day in Japan, going wire-to-wire at Kochi Racecourse. He raced in both JRA and NAR (?) races.

Chestnut Sakura Shiny, who apparently isn't a gelding, won his debut back in 2008. He raced in 3 decades.

If the CTBA website is to be believed, then Pavel has been retired and is "standing privately" at Ocean Breeze Ranch alongside Square Eddie.

Ocean Breeze has a website but only Square Eddie is listed..if Pavel is indeed retired then judging by his past performances it's possibly true..his last race per equibase was August of last year and he was eighth...Pavel seemed like a good consistent hard trying horse who just couldn't always get up to win in the end

Covfefe has been retired and will be bred to Constitution. I wish they would have raced her another year.
