DARING TACT claimed this year’s Oka Sho (Japanese 1000 Guineas)

Daring Tact

The 2018 JRHA Select Yearling Sale graduate Daring Tact claimed the first leg of the Japanese filly’s triple crown, the G1 Oka Sho and became the first filly in 40 years and third filly overall to win the race in three career outings. She also gave her trainer Haruki Sugiyama first classic victory. With no spectators due to the precautionary measures against COVID-19 taken by the Japan Racing Association, Oka Sho was held over rain affected turf track over 1600m at Hanshin on Sunday.

The second pick Dearing Tact raced farther under Kohei Matsuyama, while the top favorite Resistencia broke well from the wide gate and sat handily under Yutaka Take. Matsuyama guided the Epiphaneia-sired filly to outside route and urged her around the final turns. Resistencia closed to the lead Smile Kana in the top stretch and the two had a fierce battle with 200 meters to go, however Dearing Tact exploded her late speed from outside and closed with every stride for the last 100 meters and pulled away for 1.1/2-length win.

By Epiphaneia out of King Kamehameha mare Daring Bird, Daring Tact was purchased at 12,000,000yen at the 2018 JRHA Select Yearling Sale, and won the 1600m-maiden race at Kyoto last November. Returned from three-month break, she started off the term in LR-Elfin Stakes (1600m) at Kyoto and showed impressive late kick to widen the margin to four lengths to the line last out.
