Eishin Flash finally ended his losing streak when he won the Tenno Sho Autumn under Mirco Demuro this afternoon at Tokyo. It was the first victory for Eishin Flash since May 30, 2010 when he won the Japanese Derby.
As expected, Silport set the pace and got a huge lead before the first bend. Curren Black Hill ran at the head of a big pack of runners.
As Silport weakened at the mid-stretch, Eishin Flash along with the rail was sneaking into the top. Fenomeno and Rulership on the outside got into contention.
The best stride of them all was Eishin Flash, who crossed the line in 1 minute 57.30 seconds for the winning time over 2,000 meters on grass.
Second was, a 1/2-length behind, Fenomeno with Rulership another 1 1/4-length away third. Fourth was, another 3/4-length behind, Dark Shadow who finished a head
in front of fifth-placed Curren Black Hill.
Eishin Flash, trained by H. Fujiwara and owned by T. Hirai, has now won 5 of his 20 races with more than 632 million jpn yen in career earnings. Shadai Farm was the breeder of Eishin Flash, a 5-year-olf dark bay horse by King's Best out of the Platini mare Moonlady.
