American-Bred Agnes Digital Wins Japanese Grade I

Agnes Digital, a 4-year-old son of Crafty Prospector--Chancey Squaw (by Chief's Crown), posted his eighth victory in 20 starts when he took the Tenno Sho (Autumn) (Jpn-I) at Tokyo Racecourse on Sunday.

Trained by Toshiaki Shirai for owner Takao Watanabe, the colt defeated T.M. Opera O by one length, with Irish-bed Meishi Doto third in the 13-horse field. The final time for 1 1/4 miles over yielding turf was 2:02.

Bred in Kentucky by Catesby Clay and Peter Callahan, Agnes Digital was produced from a winning half-sister to group II winner Royal Kingdom and two other stakes winners.
