Champion Caledonia Road’s First Foal Debuts at Tokyo

In this continuing series, we take a look ahead at US-bred and/or conceived runners entered for the upcoming weekend at the tracks on the Japan Racing Association circuit, with a focus on pedigree and/or performance in the sales ring. Here are the horses of interest for this Saturday running at Tokyo Racecourse:

Saturday, February 11, 2023
2nd-TOK, ¥11,850,000 ($90,463), Newcomers, 3yo, 1400m
ERIKA BONITA (f, 3, Justify–Caledonia Road, by Quality Road) is the first foal out of her dam, whose upset victory in the 2017 GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies propelled her to Eclipse Awards honors that season. Purchased by Narvick International, agent, for $2.3 million at the 2018 Fasig-Tipton November Sale, Caledonia Road–a half-sister to MGSW Officiating (Blame) and SW One of a Kind (Lemon Drop Kid)–was bred to this Triple Crown winner on an early cover and foaled this filly in Kentucky on Jan. 20, 2020. Put back in foal to Justify soon after, she was exported to Japan and the colt that she produced Jan. 27, 2021 fetched ¥135 million ($1,223,338) at the JHRA Select Sales less than six months later. The current yearling out of Caledonia Road sold for $800,000 at the same event last July. B-Grand Stud (KY)

FUJIMASA GOOD (c, 3, Good Samaritan–Beverage Queen, by Indygo Shiner), a $45,000 in-utero purchase by JS Company at Keeneland November in 2019, is out of half-sister to US champion Ria Antonia (Rockport Harbor), herself a $1.8-million FTKNOV graduate and the dam of Japanese Group 3 victress Ria Amelia (Jpn) (Deep Impact {Jpn}). B-Beverage Queen Syndicate (KY)
