Japan’s Victoire Pisa wins Dubai World Cup – Horse Racing

They wore their hopes on their sleeves.

Japan had three horses running in the Dubai World Cup on Saturday, and from the moment they arrived at Meydan Racecourse they stood as potent reminders of the catastrophe back home.

One of them, Victoire Pisa, delivered some rare good news by winning the $10 million Dubai World Cup, the world’s richest horse race. The winner edged another Japanese horse, Transcend, at the wire by a half length.

Fans of Victoire Pisa were in tears as the national anthem played. Many of the Japanese teams wore black polo shirts with the word “hope” on the sleeve alongside Japan’s flag. On the back was the March 11 date of the earthquake and tsunami.

Victorie Pisa’s Katsuhiko Sumii, like other trainers, talked of stables left in shambles by the tsunami.

  1. even though japan has experience a worst disaster they still have the figthing spirit to go on and have a hope… even in horse racing they truly support their jockey…

    this is a big help for them for winning because they have decide to use the money to help to build up the industry and the others in japan…
