In this continuing series, we take a look ahead at US-bred and/or conceived runners entered for the upcoming weekend at the tracks on the Japan Racing Association circuit, with a focus on pedigree and/or performance in the sales ring. Here is one horse of interest for this Saturday running at Kyoto Racecourse:

Saturday, May 18, 2024
1st-KYO, ¥10,480,000 ($67k), Maiden, 3yo, 1800m
BEL DINAH PHAROAH (JPN) (f, 3, American Pharoah–Gianna Schicchi, by War Front) is out of a half-sister to His Highness The Aga Khan’s Shareta (Ire) (Sinndar {Ire}), runner-up to Danedream (Ger) (Lomitas {GB}) in the 2011 G1 Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and winner of the G1 Prix Vermeille the following season. Gianna Schicchi was unplaced in two starts and was offered with this filly in utero at the 2020 Keeneland November Sale, but was led out unsold on a bid of $275,000 and subsequently changed hands privately. The mare is also related to the stakes-placed Shazand (Ire) (Daylami {Ire}), Londres (Sea The Stars {Ire}) and Shaywan (Ire) (Sinndar {Ire}). The deeper female family includes fellow Vermeille and G1 Irish Oaks winner Shawanda (Ire) (Sinndar {Ire}), the dam of 2012 G1 St Leger hero Encke (Kingmambo). B-Tsuji Bokujo
