JRA | 4 KEEP ON RUNNINGA convenient new quarantine stable is being constructed within the track area of Tokyo Racecourse, scheduled for launch in fall 2022. The new facil-ity will enable foreign runners to go directly to Tokyo Racecourse from the airport without having to make multiple side trips to and from a separate facility for quarantine as is now the case. Equally important, horses will be able to begin training at the racetrack without interruption while still un-der quarantine. Through such ongoing improvements, we hope to attract more participants from overseas, not only for the Japan Cup but also other international races. NEW QUARANTINE STABLE WITHIN TOKYO RACECOURSE FOR ENHANCED INTERNATIONAL EVENTSJRA, which was appointed as an Ofcial Contributor of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, made its Equestrian Park available for equestrian competitions during the Games. JRA also provided necessary renovations and cooperated with Tokyo 2020 to ensure the smooth operation of competitions at the venue. Enhancements includ-ed the addition of traditional Japanese architectural features such as natural colors like black and brown and the incorporation of bricks and natural stones for texture. Going forward, JRA will utilize this newly up-graded facility as a rst-class equine culture center. A total of 193 hors-es from 50 countries took part in the Olympic Games while 75 horses from 27 countries joined the Paralympic Games, displaying a combi-nation of athletic prowess and graceful elegance on both occasions. The renewed Equestrian Park was highly appreciated by the partici-pating riders, organizers and the Fédération Équestre Internationale (FEI), reassuring JRA that it contributed to the hosting of a successful event. Although competitions were held behind closed doors and only seen via television or online, spectacular performances by the world’s top-class horses and riders no doubt made a strong impact that will contribute to awareness of and interest in horse riding, horse racing and other equine sports.TOKYO 2020 EQUESTRIAN EVENTSKentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic victor Sunday Silence was transferred to Japan in 1990 and became the leading sire for 13 straight years until 2007. His progenies such as Stay Gold, Daiwa Major, and Heart’s Cry also became successful sires of G1 winners, but Deep Im-pact was dominant. A former Triple Crown winner and just the second colt to claim the title undefeated, Deep Impact was a national hero. After retiring to stud, the legendary bay produced seven Derby winners and his bloodlines are widely sought worldwide. In 2019, the deaths of Deep Impact and King Kamehameha, another prominent sire, were huge blows to Japan’s breeding industry. With the retirement of Heart’s Cry in 2020, the title of Japan’s leading sire has been left wide open. Former sprint specialist Lord Kanaloa has produced the versatile Al-mond Eye and other G1 winners in short and middle distances to be-come the top sire in total sales (yearling session) in this year’s Select Sale. Also attracting attention are the top three sires in this year’s foal session: Kizuna, the most dominant of Deep Impact’s offspring, Rey de Oro, whose rst crop will debut in 2023, and Epiphaneia, who has produced two Classic winners. But the clear leader has yet to make his mark, so the question remains, who will it be?WHO WILL BE THE NEXT CHAMPION SIRE AFTER DEEP IMPACT?©Japan Racing Horse AssociationHORSE RACING TOPICS IN JAPANTokyo 2020 Equestrian EventsEquestrian ParkRenderings of the new quarantine stable at Tokyo Racecourse2021 Select Sale
