Kyoto Racecourse is the venue for one of Japan’s most prestigious long distance races on Sunday, April 30, the Tenno Sho (Spring), or Emperor’s Cup as it is known in English.
Going back as far as the early 20th century, different racing clubs around Japan held their own Emperor’s Cup races, before its current format began in 1937/38, making it a race steeped in history. The Grade 1 Tenno Sho (Spring) is run over 3,200 meters of the outer track at Kyoto, taking in roughly one and a half circuits of the turf course. This will be the 78th running of the spring race, and adding in the autumn races makes it the 155th overall.
He was the toast of the nation back in 2015 when he overcame El Padrino to become the first locally-trained winner of the Asia Challenge Cup and on Sunday Choegang Schiller finally returned to the Seoul Racecoure winner’s circle for the first time since that glorious day.
Talented sand galloper Pak Lok Angel made a welcome return to form with an upset win in Friday night’s Class 1 Handicap over 1350 metres at Taipa in Macau.
A rails hugging ride by Brazilian rider Leo Salles saw Pak Lok Angel give his rivals the slip around the bend for home when he darted though on the inside of the race favorite and leader River Bobo (Ruan Maia) and powered away from his rivals to win easily.
It has taken nearly 12 months for last year’s SJM Macau Derby winner Turquoise Power to make it back to the winners circle, but the five year did it all in good style when he bounced back to form with a strong win over 1800m at Taipa last Saturday.
Given a lovely ride by Andrew Calder, Turquoise Power charged home late between runners to beat Lucky Winston (Martin Wepner), with Grand Double Win (Charles Perkins) running on well for third.
