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 weekend running at Kyoto and Tokyo Racecourses:

5th-KYO, ¥13,720,000 ($91k), Newcomers, 2yo, 1800mT
OSCAR BRAVE (c, 2, Oscar Performance–Russian Symbol {Ire}, by Danehill Dancer {Ire}), a $17,000 Keeneland September yearling turned $240,00 OBS April juvenile, is the latest foal out of a winning full-sister to Esoterique (Ire), who defeated the likes of Territories (Ire), Karakontie (Jpn) and Belardo (Ire) in the 2015 G1 Prix Jacques le Marois before validating short-odds favoritism in that year's G1 Sun Chariot S. Esoterique is related to five full stakes winners, among them champion French stayer Russian Hope (Ire) (Rock Hopper {GB}).
