Spring Series Non-Stop

(WED) April 1st, 2020

4:27 p.m. The spring G1 series has already begun with Takamatsu-no Miya Kinen, and it will go on until Takaraduka Kinen unless someone in the horse racing circle gets infected by COVID-19.

Given that, I will have to start working on Osaka-hai coming up this weekend. There might have been more entries if not for the Dubai cancellation however, 13 horses including five G1 winners are entered so far. The entry will be closed tomorrow.
