Until Saturday, I wouldn't go out to Fuchu but at last decided to go there in order to enjoy horse racings with Emperor and Empress watching 132nd Tennno-sho at Tokyo Racing Course Sunday. A mare Heavenly Romance had beat last year champion Zenno Rob Roy to have acquired the Tenno Tate or THE SHIELD first since Air Groove did in 1997.
33.6!! How fast it was in last three falongs of the race, but how slow in the winnig time of it, in spite of exciting us in the scene near the goal line.
Though it apologizes to Emperor, the race is not the maximum target for all of entrants. It appeares to the content of the race, for example a slow pace, a lot of rest dawn horses, and so on. That's why I'm now less interested in a stake of Tenno-sho than before.
