Isn't there an anime/manga named One Piece?

Staggering figures for the Arima Kinen, it was watched on track by 100,189 people - with betting turnover across Japan of ¥43,664,039,500 which is £310m or $392m.

Silk Racing had a hell of a year! Triple Tiara, Japan Cup and now the Arima Kinen! Wouldn’t want to have to deal with their taxes next year! Haha What a year!

I overlooked this colt but I like that Harbinger has gotten another good one.

Yes!
Blast Onepiece(JPN), 2015c. o/o Tsurumaru Onepiece(JPN) by King Kamehameha(JPN), became the 4th G1 winner for the sire Harbinger(GB).
And, obviously, the Arima Kinen is the biggest title for the sire.

And King Kamehameha(JPN) dominated the most important races in Japan this year as a sire, a sire of sires and a broodmare sire.
I will make the list later!

How does Blast Onepiece compare with Le Vent Se Leve? Will they meet in the Feb Srakes?

BLAST ONEPIECE pulled up a treat, eating up everything, fit and well after Sunday's epic Arima Kinen win.

Blast Onepiece, a turf horse by Harbinger, is highly unlikely to run in the Feb Stakes on dirt.
And Le Vent Se Leve is said to have been slightly injured in his left front leg recently.
He may bypass the Feb Stakes, too.

In the JRA Awards 2018 (similar to the Eclipse Awards in the states), I believe that Le Vent Se Leve will be unanimously voted the ''Champion Dirt horse''.
There have been a lot of discussions among the fans as to who should be awarded the ''Champion 3yo Male''.

Wagnerian (Japanese Derby winner)?
Blast Onepiece (Arima Kinen winner)?
Le Vent Se Leve (Champion Cup winner)?

My guess is that Blast Onepiece will be given the title as he defeated Rey de Oro who might be awarded the ''Champion Older Male''.
This is going to be a close race!!!

Almond Eye will be awarded the ''Champion 3yo Female'' as well as the ''Horse of the Year''.

Chat around that LE VENT SE LEVE has a leg injury? #tba #tbc #standby

Replying to @LongBallToNoOne

Several posts on the internet, including the tweet of the part investor (so called "一口馬主") of Le Vent Se Leve, are stating that the colt has minor inflammation on the fetlock of near front leg.

But, no official news yet.
Nothing since then on Twitter... hopefully it's just a mild issue that may have already gone away.

His owner club announced on 21st in its homepage that the horse sustained a minor injury in his left front leg.
He had an echo inspection on 21st and some ‘roughness’ was found in his suspensory.
He doesn’t have any soreness or lameness, though.
Then he has been sent to the farm and will be monitored for a while.

Omega Perfume(JPN), 2015C. Swept Overboard(USA) x Omega Fragrance(JPN) by Gold Allure(JPN), captured his first G1 beating older rivals in the Tokyo Daishoten 2000m dirt at Ohi on Dec 29th 2018.

He was the runner-up to Le Vent Se Leve(JPN) in the Japan Dirt Derby (Jpn1) and the fifth in the Champion Cup (G1) this year.
