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 Chukyo and Nakayama Racecourses:

1st-CKO, ¥9,680,000 ($87k), Maiden, 2yo, 1400m
DUGAT (c, 2, Practical Joke–Untraveled, by Canadian Frontier) faces straight maidens for the first time at career start number three, having finished a good third in allowance company on debut in heavy ground at Kokura Aug. 14 ahead of a solid fourth in the G3 Kokura Nisai S. Sept. 5. The $190K OBS March breezer from the family of MGSW juvenile Salty Perfume (Salt Lake) tries the dirt for the first time with legend Yutaka Take at the controls and should be winning.

JASPER KRONE (c, 2, Frosted–Fancy Kitten, by Kitten's Joy) opened his account at first asking with a front-running 1 3/4-length success going this distance at Niigata Aug. 21 (see below, gate 14). The chestnut is the first produce from his stakes-placed dam, a $10K purchase by Machmer Hall at the Fasig-Tipton February Sale in 2018. Jasper Krone,a $25K Keeneland September yearling turned $90K OBSMAR grad, hails from the female family of the talented Jump Start (A.P. Indy) from the same sire line. Mirco Demuro has a return call.
