Takarazuka Kinen


Tonight I watched the Takarazuka Kinen Stakes from Hanshin Racecourse in Japan, and I was surprised at the result. This horse, Sweep Tosho, beat out a field that included nine starters sired by Sunday Silence, two starters sired by Timber Country, three other horses, and the defending Stakes winner, Tap Dance City, to win it all. Young jockey Kenichi Ikezoe is the man of the hour, and it is only time before he continues to etch his mark upon Japan's, and soon, the world's greatest jockeys. Wow. That's all I can say.

In other news, the Galaxy are in need of some coaching changes. We finished our road campaign with one tie and three losses. Something is not going right. We have to fix this, and FAST. The Angels are a different story. With a five game winning streak, my Halos (of which I bought their cap today) are on the verge of sweeping their rivals, the LA Dodgers tomorrow.

Also, the Roughriders got off to a blazing start, defeating the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 42-15. Great start for the men in green, they have their next five of 8 on the road, so this will test them.

I am in due need of some sleep and some reading. Two more weeks, and this Law class is history.
