2011 Shuka Sho
A total of 18 fillies will go to post for the grade one Shuka Sho, considered the last leg of the Triple Crown Races for 3-year-old fillies.
Having been sidelined more than 7 months due to leg injury, Aventura had a splendid campaign this summer with a couple of victories including the grade three Queen Stakes at Sapporo to make up for lost time. She drew post 4 in the grade one Shuka Sho.
Whale Capture, an impressive winner of the Rose Stakes, drew post 12. Erin Court, winner of the Japanese Oaks, will break from post 9. The Oka Sho(Japanese 1000 Guineas) winner Marcellina has post 18.
The post time of the 2000-meter Shuka Sho at Kyoto Racecourse will be at 3:40 p.m. on Sunday, October 16, 2011.
