Clincher victorious in Kyoto Kinen

Having placed second in the Kikuka Sho(Japanese St.Leger) last time out, Clincher held a good position to win the Kyoto Kinen under Yusuke Fujioka at Kyoto on Sunday.
The three horses were fighting for a lead in the late stage - Rey de Oro and Al Ain on the outside with Mozu Katchan on the rail, but Clincher draw up on the middle of the course and got past them to hit the finish line in 2:16.3. A length behind, Al Ain finished second followed by Rey de Oro third and Mozu Katchan fourth. 
Clincher, who has now gained his first grade glory, is a 4-year-old bay colt by Deep Sky out of The Fates, by Brian's Time.
