Comeback King's Trail
Once regarded as one of the most talented colts in the leading trainer Kazuo Fujisawa's stable, KING'S TRAIL(Sunday Silence - Santa Fe Trail, by Northern Taste) had a comeback triumph in the St. Lite Kinen for 3-year-olds Sunday afternoon at Nakayama. He finished a neck before favorite FUSAICHI AUSTER(USA)(Stormin Fever - Gender War, by Green Dancer) in 2 minutes 11.8 seconds for the winning time in the 2,000 meters on the main course. Third place went to KING'S TRAIL's stablemate PISA NO PATEK(Sunday Silence - Blessing, by Maruzensky), who finished a half-length behind the runner-up. Hiroshi Kitamura took the mount on the winning colt. As the eighth choice, KING'S TRAIL paid 2,140 yen for win.
The race was the first start in 10 months due to a leg injury for KING'S TRAIL to successfully amend his lost time. The last time we saw him on the course prior to the St. Lite was last November in the Keio Hai Nisai Stakes where he finished a promising second.
