Real Steel made it two wins for Japan on the Dubai World Cup card March 26 when he ran down Very Special in the stretch and held off Euro Charline in the $6 million Dubai Turf Sponsored by DP World (UAE-I) at Meydan.
Kitasan Black gamely drove between horses in the stretch and claimed the final jewel in Japan's Triple Crown, the Kikuka Sho (Jpn-I, Japanese St. Leger), Oct. 25 at Kyoto.
Regally bred Duramente unfurled a dramatic closing kick from the back and won the Satsuki Sho (Jpn-I, Japanese Two Thousand Guineas) April 19 at Nakayama from Real Steel, who defeated him last time out.
