First of all, from horses that won GI races overseas.

The order of introduction is in the order of Aiueo, the Japanese alphabet and there is no particular meaning in the order.

Japanese horses who have run mainly in the country

The mark 👑 in front of names shows that the horses are winners of GⅠ races overseas.

👑 Tosen Stardom

 

First, I would like to introduce his profile.

Tosen Stardom

Born on March 14, 2011

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Admire Kirameki (JPN)

Dam’s sire: End Sweep (USA)

Owner: Australian Bloodstock Tosen, Takaya Shimakawa and others

Trainer: Yasutoshi Ikee and Darren Weir

Lifetime record: 26 starts for 4 wins (races in Japan and Australia)

Main races he won: Toorak Handicap 2017 (GⅠ), Emirates Stakes 2017 (GⅠ), Challenge Cup 2014 (GⅢ)

Overseas Races he won: Toorak Handicap 2017 (GⅠ), Emirates Stakes 2017 (GⅠ)

Tosen Stardom was sold for 262.5 million yen at the 2012 Select Sale.

He won the Kisaragi Sho (GⅢ) for three consecutive wins since his debut, and was highly expected to run well in Classic races.

However, unfortunately, he couldn’t get the results as expected in the races.

I remember the accident well that he hit the inner railing in the home straight in the Derby.

In the spring of 4 years old, he traveled to Australia and finished second in the Ranvet Stakes (GⅠ).

Then, he might build a relationship with connections there.

He ran in six races, mainly graded ones after returning, but he couldn’t come to top places.

He moved to Australia after participated in the Tokyo Shimbun Hai in February 2016.

He couldn’t win a GI race in Japan, but had two wins in the races in Australia.

He retired after the race in April 2018 and is now a stallion.

After moving to Australia, there seemed to be a time when he rested for a while due to injury and illness.

However, I think it was very good for him to be able to become a stallion with a record of two wins in GⅠ races.

I hope he will continue to send out good children in Australia.

👑 Real Impact

Overseas Race he won: George Ryder Stakes 2015 (GⅠ)

I was really surprised by Real Impact. I wrote in detail on the following page.

リアルインパクト 思い出のディープインパクト産駒 その3 追記ありいらすとや 数多くいるディープ産駒のなかでも、一番驚かされたのがリアルインパクトです。 リアルインパクトはディープの初年度産...

He traveled abroad only once. At the age of seven, he participated in GI races in Australia.

He surprisingly won the Yasuda Kinen at the age of three.

After that, there was a slump period.

But, at the age of 5 and 6, he won the Hanshin Cup two years in a row.

Looking at the results of the races during the period, I honestly don’t know the reason for this consecutive victory.

He traveled to Australia in the spring of 7 years old and won the George Ryder Stakes, his first race there.

He finished second in the next race, the Doncaster Mile (GI).

World Ace also went there, but unfortunately he couldn’t come to top places.

Real Impact retired after the race in November 2015 and became a stallion in Japan.

The race results in Australia were evaluated and he visited there as a shuttle stallion.

He went there for three consecutive years, the 2016-2017, 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 seasons.

His children are winning one after another in Australia, and the other day, his son also won his maiden in Hong Kong.

I look forward to their success not only in Japan but also overseas.

 

👑 Real Steel

This is the first time I’ve covered him in this blog, so I’ll write his profile.

Real Steel

Born on March 1, 2012

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Loves Only Me (USA)

Dam’s sire: Storm Cat (USA)

Owner: Sunday Racing

Trainer: Yoshito Yahagi

Lifetime record: 17 starts for 4 wins

Main races he won: Dubai Turf 2016 (GⅠ), Mainichi Okan 2017(GⅡ), Kyodo Tsushin Hai 2015 (GⅢ)

Overseas Race he won: Dubai Turf 2016 (GⅠ)

Real Steel won the Kyodo Tsushin Hai in his second race, and he was expected to win in Classic races.

However, other opponents were really strong…

Duramente won in the Satsuki Sho (GI) and the Derby and Kitasan Black, in the Kikuka Sho (GI), although he was in top places.

At the age of four, he traveled to Dubai and was ridden by Jockey Moore to win in the Dubai Turf brilliantly.

It was a long-awaited GI victory.

I was impressed that Trainer Yahagi was very pleased then.

I know he had been frustrated in races overseas including the one that Deep Brillante participated in the U.K.

After this, unfortunately he couldn’t win a GI race in Japan.

He went to Dubai again In 2018 and ran in the Dubai Turf, but he finished third.

Vivlos was in the second place then. Vivlos, so great!

ヴィブロス 思い出のディープインパクト産駒 その15このブログに移ってきて、記念すべき最初の記事はヴィブロスを取り上げます。 ヴィブロスって、現役の時はそれほど思わなかったんですけど...

Real Steel retired after running in the Yasuda Kinen in 2018 and became a stallion.

He is a horse with a world renowed and top class pedigree that is close to the one of Study Of Man, a French Derby winner.

I have high expectations for his success as a stallion.

Kizuna

Overseas Race he won: Prix Niel 2013 (GⅡ)

As you know, Kizuna is a GI horse who won the Japanese Derby.

However, since he didn’t win a GI race overseas, he is treated as “a winner of a graded race” in this page.

After winning the Derby, Kizuna went to France in the fall of 3 years old and participated in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

The prep race was the Prix Niel.

It became a hot topic because he defeated a British Derby winner of the year, Ruler of the World.

He finished fourth in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.  Orfevre also participated in the same race, finishing second.

The winner was Treve.

Orfevre was 5 lengths behind her, so it was a race that the winner was strong.

After this, some children of Deep Impact ran in the race. I think that it was a good fight to be in fourth place at the age of 3.

Winning GI in Japan at the age of three and winning a graded race overseas would be even more praiseworthy.

Kizuna only traveled abroad at the age of three.

He retired after running in the Tenno Sho Spring in 2015. He is now a stallion.

His chidren are running very well, and the winning rate seems to be very high.

Currently, it can be said that he is the leading successor to his sire.

I hope that he will stay healthy and continue to produce good children for many years to come.

Makahiki

Actually, I am writing the section of Makahiki on March 19, 2021.

Yes, I completely overlooked that he won a grade race overseas until the day before💦.

There’s a reason for that, but I’ll talk about it later.

This is the first time I’ve covered him in this blog, so I’ll write his profile.

Makahiki

Born on January 28, 2013

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Wikiwiki (JPN)

Dam’s sire: French Deputy (USA)

Owner: Kaneko Makoto Holdings

Trainer: Yasuo Tomomichi

Lifetime record: 22 starts for 5 wins

Main races he won: Japanese Derby 2016 (GⅠ), Yayoi Sho 2016 (GⅡ)

Overseas Race he won: Prix Niel 2016 (GⅡ)

Like Kizuna, Makahiki is a GI horse that has won the Japanese Derby.

However, since he didn’t win a GI race overseas, he is treated as “a winner of a graded race” in this page.

After winning in the Japanese Derby in 2016, Makahiki moved to France at the age of three.

He went there to challenge strong opponents overseas in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

He won a prep race, the Prix Niel and achieved his first win in a graded race overseas.

However, he was completely defeated, finishing 14th in the next race.

I was so excited to see the result of the race, and I was shocked to hold my breath.

Perhaps it was hard for me to think about his races overseas, and his winning the Prix Niel was also lost in my memory.

 

Makahiki continues to be active this year when he is eight years old.

From 2017 to 2018, there was an interval of about 8 months between races, so he has ran just in 22 races.

Some people say it would be better for him to retire early and become a stallion, but I don’t think so.

I think Mr. Kaneko, his owner wants to keep his horses at hand for as long as possible and take care of them.

One of his mares, Denim And Ruby also had a long rest due to bowed tendon, but remained active until the age of eight.

Both Makahiki and Denim and Ruby are horses who achieved outstanding results.

So, there may not be worries for the future even if they retire.

However, I think it is a form of love that you want to keep your horses for as long as possible if you are an owner.

There are many stallions by Deep Impact in Japan, including Satono Diamond and Dee Majesty, who were the same age.

I don’t think that the possibility of success as a stallion will change in such circumstances even if Makahiki retires early.

Although I said so, he is eight years old now. I don’t think there is much time left for him to be a racehorse.

I hope he can run safely until his last race finishes.

 

👑 Loves Only You

 

A new GI winner by Deep Impact joined the list🎉

Loves Only You won the Queen Elizabeth II Cup at Sha Tin Racecourse in Hong Kong on April 25th!

This is the first time I’ve introduced her on this blog, so I’ll write her profile first.

Loves Only You

Born on March 26, 2016

Sire: Deep Impact (JPN) Dam: Loves Only Me (USA)

Dam’s sire: Storm Cat (USA)

Owner: DMM Dream Club

Trainer: Yoshito Yahagi

Lifetime record: 15 starts for 7 wins  (as of November 13, 2021)

Main races she won: Tokyo Yushun Himba 2019 (GI), QEⅡ Cup 2021 (GⅠ), BC Filly & Mare Turf 2021 (GⅠ)

Overseas Race she won: QEⅡ Cup 2021 (GⅠ), BC Filly & Mare Turf 2021 (GⅠ)

Looking at her profile, many of you may think that you saw it somewhere.

Yes, she is a full sister to Real Steel who I introduced on this page.

So far, the only brothers who had won overseas GI races were Real Impact and Neo Realism.

Real impact and Neo Realism have different fathers.

So, Real Steel and Loves Only You are the first full siblings winning overseas GI races.

Loves Only You won the Japanese Oaks undefeated at the age of three.

People were very much looking forward to her continued success.

However, she couldn’t get the results they expected last year.

She went to Dubai to participate in a race last March.

But, the race was not held due to the spread of the new coronavirus.

Even after she returned to Japan, there were races where she couldn’t show her full potential.

However, she won the first race in 2021, the Kyoto Kinen, for the first time in a long time.

She traveled to Dubai again to achieve a victory in the Dubai Sheema Classic that she wanted to do so last year.

She unfortunately finished in third place.

But, the winner, Mishriff, won by a neck from Chrono Genesis, the runner-up.

Chrono Genesis also finished a neck in front of Loves Only You, so it was not that far from the winner.

The third place after a fierce competition made us feel a sign that we would be able to see her full-scale revival.

Loves Only You set her next goal for the Queen Elizabeth II Cup in Hong Kong, and she remained alone in Dubai to continue her training.

 

I think this arrangement worked very well.

An interesting episode was introduced on Twitter;

“Dubai was so comfortable that she ate a lot of food.”

 

I’ve been thinking for a long time that Dubai seems to be a very good place for horses to stay.

I think that’s why Vivlos who was a small horse was able to succeed there.

I wonder if the place is a good environment especially for fillies and mares.

After entering Hong Kong, Loves Only You looked really good and I was looking forward to the race.

Seven horses participated in the race.

Four GI horses from Japan, including Loves Only You, ran in the race, and the rest were those in Hong Kong.

Due to the influence of the new coronavirus, it seems that it was not possible to participate from other countries.

It was a fierce competition with Glory Vase, Daring Tact, a triple crown filly at the finish.

But, Loves Only You finally ran ahead of them and won brilliantly.

She achieved the long-awaited second GI victory overseas.

This “love” mark of Jockey Ho was very cute❤

Glory Vase by Deep Impact finished second, and the horses who finished first to fourth were Japanese ones.

After arriving in Hong Kong, Glory Vase was followed up by a local veterinarian who pointed out the lameness of his right front leg.

It was good that he was able to run in the race safely in the end.

Checks by the organizer seems to be very strict.

Glory Vase was late at the start and caught up fiercely on the final straight, but did not reach the winner.

However, it seems that the racetrack suits him, as he won the Hong Kong Vase in 2019.

I think he did his best.

 

This concludes the introduction of children of Deep Impact who won graded races overseas.

With only a few generations left, I hope that as many of his children as possible will be added to the list.
