競馬 秋の天皇賞 エフフォーリアが優勝！ Autumn Horse Racing: "Japanese Emperor's Prize" won by Efforia!
Autumn Horse Racing: “Japanese Emperor’s Prize” Efforia wins the race as three-year-old horse!
The first time a three-year-old horse in 19 years to win the Autumn’s “Japanese Emperor’s Prize”
The 164th Japanese Emperor’s Prize (Tenno-sho) Autumn (Open to 3-year-olds and up, GI, 2000m, 16-horse field, first prize money = 150 million yen) was won by the 3rd favourite Efforia (3-year-old, Miura, Yuichi Kado), ridden by Takeshi Yokoyama, in the Tokyo 11R on October 31. He defeated Contrail, last year’s undefeated Triple Crown winner, and Gran Allegri, the queen of the three classes, and the older GI horse. This was his second win in the GI, signalling a change of generation. The time was 1:57.9 (good).
Efforia rose steadily from his winning debut to score the “Grade 3 Kyodo News Hai” (Tokinominoru Kinen), then went on to victory in the 3-year-old classic “Satsuki Sho” early this year.
The 22-year-old Takeshi Yokoyama, who rode Efforia in the “Satsuki Sho” and is title holder of last week’s “Kikuka Sho”, got his third big win of the year with his first “Japanese Emperor’s Prize” (Tenno Sho/Autumn).
