Some Joy For Japan
Category: Member Blogs


 

The closing day at Meydan Racecourse is always full of bliss for all the winning connections on that evening.  I always enjoy seeing the triumphant horse and the people responsible for him in the winner’s circle, be it the horse I chose, or not.  This year, I believe the Dubai World Cup was not only one of the most historical runnings-the winner being the first Japan-based winner-, but certainly one of the most meaningful wins of all-time.

 

 

This victory by the 17-1 shot, Victoire Pisa, could not have come at a better time for the Japanese people. Following the devasting earthquake and tsunami, perhaps Victoire Pisa can bring a little optimism back into Japan, not unlike the Saint’s Super Bowl win after Hurricane Katrina.

After Victoire Pisa and jockey Mirco Demuro crossed the wire, I was heartwarmed to see so much emotion from all the connections. The tears of joy streaming down Mirco Demuro’s face and shear jubilation expressed by owners and trainer , made me feel that with moments such as these, horseracing proves again and again how much hope the sport can bring to many people, and pride to a country in desperate need of some good news.
