Buena Vista: The Next Star Horse
This past weekend saw the Tulip-Sho and Yayoi-sho all but produce the favorites going into the spring classics later next month! Buena Vista winner of the Tulip had the most impressive sudden acceleration of any racehorse that I've wittnessed here in Japan. I'll say it now, this fillie has all the indications of easily winning the Oaks on April 12th and the Derby as well.
Logi Universe was less impressive in his win in the Yayoi running 2.03.5 the slowest time of this race since 1999. Bad track conditions not withstanding 2yr old horse of the year Seiun Wonder looked empty from the start and finished a very dismal 8th. The Satsuki-sho on April 19th is shaping up to be a showdown between early pace setters Logi and Kisaragi-sho winner Return The Crown.
