Dolce More wins the Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes 2022

Miss New York swoops late and fast to win the Grade 3 Turquoise Stakes to register her first win of the season and second career graded stakes victor, while Dolce More makes it three in a row to stake his claim for next years 2000 Guineas by winning the Grade 1 Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes 2022 in a thrilling finish at Hanshin Racecourse

The Turquoise Stakes

Grade 3 – Purse $528,000 – 1600 meters – Turf – 3-Year-Olds and Up

As the gates opened, Fermi Sphere hit the gate and was on the back foot thereafter, while up front it was first Ablaze and Mama Cocha who went to the front, but they were soon passed by Win Charlotte and Wrightia who took over after a furlong to set a strong pace.

Meanwhile the eventual winner MISS NEW YORK had a good position midfield in the ninth spot, and jockey Mirco Demuro was traveling strongly on the outside.

As they went down the backstretch, the favorite Mama Cocha was reined back after breaking well and settled in the fourth spot and as they exited the backstretch with 600 meters (3 furlongs) to go, it was still Wrightia leading.

They fanned across the track and it was here that Win Charlotte went for the wire, but her move was covered first by Ablaze and then Miss New York, who came with a strong run on the outside and grabbed the runner up just yards from the wire, with another strong finisher Fierce Pride taking the third spot.

An exciting race and one to watch for next time will be Fermi Sphere who was very unlucky in the run.

The Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes

Grade 1 – Purse $983,000 – 1600 metres – Turf – 2-Year-Olds

As the gates flew open, it was the eventual winner DOLCE MORE who jumped alertly, but he was soon dropped in at the rail with jockey Ryusei Sakai content to follow the searing pace set by All Parfait who had adopted his customary front running tactics and was clearly going to try and spread the field and go gate to wire.

As the field settled down the backstretch, All Parfait was bowling along a couple of lengths clear with the favourite and eventual winner close up in third.

The other big player on the boards was Danon Touchdown, and he was far back on the inside looking for an out, but had more traffic in front than behind.

All Parfait led into the home stretch but it was here that Dolce More peeled off the fence to take control with 150 metres (just over a sixteenth) to the wire and he held well to repel the fast finishing Danon Touchdown and Labeling.

Its the second time in a row that Danon Touchdown has closed strongly and just failed to win, and he is the one to take out of the race after a very tough trip.
