First Stakes Winner For Dubai Turf Hero Real Steel, As All Parfait Rises To The Top At Hanshin

Real Steel | Shadai Stallion Station


All Parfait (Jpn) (Real Steel {Jpn}) made it back-to-back victories with a half-length triumph in the 1600-metre G2 Daily Hai Nisai S. at Hanshin on Saturday. Second was race favourite Danon Touchdown (Jpn) (Lord Kanaloa {Jpn}), who left the gates at 5-2.

The first stakes-winner for his 2016 G1 Dubai Turf-winning sire, the 2-year-old colt broke in the centre of the course from gate 10 and sped up to take command inside the first 100 metres. Hard on the steel, he covered his first 600 metres in :35.30. He soon came under pressure from Shomon (Jpn) (Mind Your Biscuits), but remained a neck in front with 600 metres to travel. Asked for his run in early stretch, the bay lengthened away to a several-length advantage. All Parfait pegged back Danon Touchdown to score, with the latter rallying dramatically from last to just miss. It was a length back to a game Shomon in third.

All Parfait ran second versus newcomers when unveiled over a mile at Tokyo on June 4 and was promptly shelved. He returned over that trip to take a Nakayama maiden on Oct. 2 and was 4-1 on Saturday.


Pedigree Notes

The dual Classic-placed Real Steel (Jpn) has 113 juveniles in his first crop. Fifty-three of his progeny have raced, 13 have won, and All Parfait is his first stakes and group winner.

Unraced as a juvenile, Queen Grace (Jpn) (Rulership {Jpn}) scored both of her victories at three over 2000 metres on firm turf at Nakayama on debut and in her career finale at the same course going a mile. All Parfait is her first foal, and she has since produced the yearling colt Glory One (Jpn) (World Ace {Jpn}) and a Kizuna (Jpn) filly of this year foaled on May 4.

Second dam was the winning Pikes Peak (Jpn) (Agnes Tachyon {Jpn}), while All Parfait's third dam was the GII La Prevoyante H. and GIII Glens Falls H. heroine Arvada (GB) (Hernando {Fr}). Knocked down to Shadai Farm for $800,000 in foal to Empire Maker at the 2005 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale, the G1 Prix Saint-Alary third would go on to produce 11 foals in Japan, for 11 runners and eight winners.
