What a Lovely Day in Tenno Sho Autumn

What a lovely season he has! His name is Lovely Day, who just gained the sixth grade victory of the season as he won the Tenno Sho Autumn at Tokyo Race Course this afternoon.
Jockey Suguru Hamanaka reunited him to travel the 2,000-meter distance in 1 minute 58.40 seconds for  the final time of the Tenno Sho.
Lovely Day strode clear when leaving the 200-meter maker. Staphanos, Isla Bonita and Shonan Pandora chased after him, but neither of them could catch him.
Staphanos came second, a 1/2-length behind the winner. Another 3/4 length back, Isla Bonita came third with Shonan Pandora fourth and Ambitious fifth.

Lovely Day has raced in the color of K. Makoto Holding Co. and the saddle of tainer Y. Ikee with nine wins in 25 career starts. His career earnings improved to more than 647 million jp yen.
Bred by Northern Farm, Lovely Day is a 5-year-old dark bay horse by King Kamehameha out of Popcorn Jazz, by Dance in the Dark.
