Satono Crown triumphs Takarazuka

Having finished sixth place in the Osaka Hai, Satono Crown came back on a great performance as he won the Takarazuka Kinen under Mirco Demuro in the Hanshin muddy course.
Mirco Demuro chased heavy favorite Kitasan Black and then got past him in the mid-stretch to quicken into front. Demuro said, "The ground was all on him. He had a great run in the stretch."
He won it by a 3/4-length from Gold Actor, who made a good last effort on the inside. Another 1 1/2-length behind, Mikki Queen came third with Sciacchetra fourth and Rainbow Line fifth.
Kitasan Black stalked the pace at third place, but failed to fire in the stretch to finish a disappointing ninth.
The race was run in 2 minutes 11.40 seconds over 2,200 meters.
Satono Crown, owned by H.Satomi and trained by N.Hori, has now won seven of his 14 races with more than 571 million jpn yen in career earnings.
Northern Racing was the breeder of Satono Crown, a 5-year-old dark by horse by Marju out of Jioconda, by Rossini.
