Rouge Buck heads Nakayama Himba nominations


Rouge Buck heads the list of 20 nominated for the grade three Nakayama Himba Stakes for 4yo+ fillies and mares to be run on Sunday, March 13 at Nakayama.
The 4-year-old Manhattan Cafe filly, once regarded the best filly of her generation early last season, could bid for rebuilding her reputation in her first start of the season.
Among other horses nominated for the 1,800-meter turf race are Earthrise and Sing with Joy.

On the same day, Hanshin Racecourse features the Fillies' Revue, one of the major preps for the Oka Sho(Japanese 1000 Guineas). A total of 20 fillies remain on the final list of the grade two nomination list.

There are 20 nominees for the grade three Chunichi Shimbun Hai to be run on Saturday, March 12 at Chukyo Racecourse.
