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 are the horses of interest for this Sunday running at Kokura Racecourse:

Sunday, July 7, 2024
10th-KOK, ¥29,450,000 ($183k), Allowance, 3yo/up, 1200mT
PROTOPOROS (JPN) (c, 4, War Front–Cavale Doree {Fr}, by Sunday Break {Jpn}), a debut winner going this distance at Chukyo just over two years ago for the Carrot Farm syndicate, was a good fourth in Group 3 company in his next appearance and was last seen annexing a Chukyo allowance in January 2023 (see below, SC 4), having suffered a pelvic fracture according to published reports. The colt’s dam, winner of the 2016 G3 Prix du Cavaldos and third to New Money Honey (Medaglia d’Oro) in that year’s GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf, was purchased by Katsumi Yoshida for 650,000gns carrying this colt at the 2019 Tattersalls December Mares Sale. Cavale Doree is a half-sister to Horizon Dore (Fr) (Dabirsim {Fr}), a three-time winner at group level in France and most recently third to Auguste Rodin (Ire) (Deep Impact {Jpn}) in the G1 Prince of Wales’s S. at Royal Ascot.
