Just in Case

(WED) October 5th, 2022

6:39 p.m. Looking at the entry form for Mainichi Ohkan just in case. Currently only 10 horses enterd.

Rain is expected until next Monday, meaning that the race could be run on soft track. If so, it's likely that front runners and inner post starters will have the advantage except when there's a trailer with outstanding instantaneous speed starting from outer posts.

Whether it rains or shines, it's going to be a record-breaking fast track with Tokyo races just beginning. Fast time record is a must for high-performers.
