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:

ELUCIDATOR (c, 3, Hard Spun–Empire City {Jpn}, by Empire Maker) is out of an unraced half-sister to the outstanding dual Group 1-winning Japanese dirt horse Espoir City (Jpn) (Gold Allure {Jpn}), who was purchased by Hakurei Farm's Akira Katayama for $300K in foal to American Pharoah at Keeneland November in 2017. This early April produce is bred on the same cross as GI Met Mile hero and new Claiborne stallion Silver State and on a similar cross to GISW Smooth Roller. Empire City has since been repatriated to Japan. B-Hakurei Farm (KY)
