Meadowlark, installed as the 11th favorite at the odds of 100.8(499/5), won the Tanabata Sho at Fukushima racecourse on Sunday. He won it by a neck from fourth favorite Meiner Sage. Another 2-length away, Power Pocket was third.  Kyotosuke Maruta rode the winner to get into the wire in 2:00.8 over 2,000 meters on turf.
It was the first victory for Meadowlark since June 2015 when winning the June Stakes at Tokyo.
Meadowlark is a 7-year-old bay horse by Tanino Gimlet out of Agehibari, by Kurofune.
