His 7th win was collected at Nakayama, where he had five wins including two G2 races, when Matsurida Gogh made long shot in JRA Arima-kinen, the Grand Prix on Sunday. Meisho Samson, the race favorite lost sight in the rear.
Katsumi Ando on the filly Daiwa Scarlet made the effective lap for her and might have showed the most valuable performance although she allowed the son of Sunday Silence onboarding Masayoshi Ebina turning around the place. The daughter of Agnes Tachyon repelled her brother Daiwa Major, who was retiring with five big titles before keeping the second place as a female horse since 1994's Hishi Amazon.
Hope both Matsurida Gogh's new adventure and Daiwa Scarlet's big ambitious coming year.
