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 weekend running at Kyoto Racecourse:
6th-KYO, ¥14,880,000 ($110k), Allowance, 3yo, 1400m
ANGE FIELD (JPN) (f, 3, Justify–Not Now Carolyn, by Tapit), purchased for ¥80 million ($745,639) as a foal at the 2020 JHRA Select Sale, got her career off on a positive note for trainer Yoshito Yahagi when taking out a 1200-meter maiden at Hanshin Mar. 12 (see below, SC 1). The chestnut’s dam was a three time winner at the races of just shy of $100,000 and was hammered down to Shimokobe Farm for $140,000 at the 2018 Keeneland November Sale before being bred to this Triple Crown winner and exported in utero. Not Now Carolyn is a daughter of Grade I winner Maryfield (Elusive Quality), winner of the inaugural Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint in 2007. B-Shimokobe Farm
