The Jun Ray of King Kamehameha is enthroned at Chukyo

In a dramatic end at the G1 Champions Cup on Sunday in Chukyo, Jun Light Bolt (Jpn) (King Kamehameha {Jpn}) wearing the neck of G2 UAE’s Derby hero Crown of Pride (Jpn) (Reach The Crown {Jpn}) by the neck just in front of the rope.

Chased 6-1 in this 1800 meter run, the entire 5-year-old settled once off the rails in the mid-pocket like Red Soldado (Jpn) (Majestic Warrior) rushes forward. That opponent, setting an uncontrollable pace, came through with average on the bench, with the first 1000 meters finishing in 1:02.40. As a result, the court is keeping order more closely and the race room is at a high level as they approach the far turn.

Still running 400 meters from home, Red Soldado is facing a tough test from Crown Pride outside. Jun Light Bolt, meanwhile, was in attack distance, and was questioned by pilot Yukito Ishikawa just behind the quarter-post. Roaring home ominously, the dark bay keeps an eye on new frontman Crown Pride, as favorite 1-2 TO Keynes (Jpn) (The sinister minister) is curling up inside. However, runner Yasuo Tommichi hit a superior device and lunged forward three times out of line. stalking hapi (Jpn) (Kizuna {Jpn}) was 1 1/4 of the length behind in third place, a long distance behind TO Keynes, who passed many points in the race.

Ishikawa, who won his first Group 1 race in Japan, said: “I can’t find any other words to describe this other than ‘happy’. “I tried to feel the rhythm of the horse and was sure that if we found some space after entering the lane, it would take off. The pony reacted so well that I knew we could win. Although I haven’t felt my first win in Group 1 yet, but I want to enjoy it from now on.”

Despite having won four times and been shortlisted on the field, the dog bred from the North farm reinvented itself when it tried to play on the ground for the first time in July, coming in second. in the July S. Ranking listed in Fukushima. He earned his first black elimination point entirely in the Niigata-listed BSN Sho in August and continued his upward trajectory with a three-quarter point in G3 Sirius S. going 1900 meters across the strip on October 1st.
