Kitasan Black Draws Post Number 1

(THU) April 28th, 2016

5:51 p.m. I am drained after 3 hours of meeting and Cow is chatting me up with Tennno-sho talk.

Kitasan Black has drawn post number 1 and looking rock-solid as a key horse, that's true. If Yutaka Take wins Tennno-sho with Kitasan, it will give a boost to his 30th Anniversary exhibition at Mitsukoshi, Nihonbashi.

Hmmm... perhaps I can pay a visit. But before I go, I need to win the race.
