Field set for 2017 Satsuki Sho

A field has been drawn for the Satsuki Sho(Japanese 2000 Guineas) for 3-year-olds to be run on Sunday, April 16 at Nakayama Racecourse.

The center of attention in this classic race will be Fan Dii Na(3-3-0-0), who is the only filly in the 18-horse field. She won all her three races, her most recently effort at the grade three Flower Cup where she toyed with her rivals. It will be very much interesting how she runs against the top class colts. Yasunari Iwata mounts on her to break from post 8.

Among other entries for the 2,000-meter classic race are:
g3 Kyodo News Servive Hai winner Suave Richard(4-2-2-0), g2 Yayoi Sho winner Cadenas(5-3-2-0), g2 Hopleful Stakes winner Rey de Oro(3-3-0-0) and Persian Knight(5-3-1-1), winner of the g3 Arlington Cup.
