Monday, 10th April 2006

Ill-fated former Arrowfield Stud shuttler End Sweep (Forty Niner-Broom Dance, by Dance Spell) added a Japanese group success when 4YO mare Rhein Kraft (End Sweep-Must Be Loved, by Sunday Silence) scored a decisive 3-lengths victory in the Gr2 Sankeisports Hai Hanshin Himba Stakes (1600m on turf) for fillies & mares at Hanshin. Rhein Kraft (ridden by Y.Fukunaga for trainer T.Setoguchi) defeated Air Messiah (Sunday Silence-Air Deja Vu, by Northern Taste) & Snark Suzuran (Dancing Brave-Fleet Regatta, by Real Shadai). Northern Farm-bred Rhein Kraft finished runner-up last start in the Gr1 Takamatsunomiya Kinen (1200m on turf) at Chukyo on March 26 & also placed in both Japan's Gr1 Mile Championship (1600m) at Kyoto in November & Gr1 Shuka Sho (2000m) at Kyoto in October.
