Ganbatte Kochi!

Just held my annual 'Friendship' race at Kochi (the 5R), with Akaoka-san riding the perfect start-to-finish race to claim a convincing victory against the odds - although he was second favourite, the odds were strongly in favour of the horse that ultimately came third. Mai Beppu came fifth despite having a tiddler that no-one fancied (weighing in at just 396kg), which was a fine performance as well. One thing for sure, one always gets an entertaining race at Kochi - I will certainly continue to sponsor races there, and may well keep a horse there one day to keep a certain level of interest in Japanese racing once the current lot have retired. For now, well done everyone, and thank you for a super race...
