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 Tokyo Racecourse, where the featured event is the second leg of the Japanese Filly Triple Crown, the G1 Yushun Himba over 2400 meters:

Sunday, May 22, 2022
2nd-TOK, ¥9,900,000 ($77k), Maiden, 3yo, 1600m
CHAMP DE MARS (JPN) (c, 3, Arrogate–Pressurizing, by Henrythenavigator) is the first Japanese-foaled produce for her dam, an unraced half-sister to the legendary Zenyatta (Street Cry {Ire}) and MGISW Balance (Thunder Gulch), who was bought back on a bid of $875K when offered at the 2017 Fasig-Tipton November Sale after which she was acquired by Northern Farm. Pressurizing produced a filly by Speightstown in 2018 and was among the first book of mares bred to Arrogate before being exported to Japan. Pressurizing's current 2-year-old, a colt by Kizuna (Jpn), fetched better than $907K at last year's JRHA Select Sale. Damian Lane has the call on Champ de Mars. B-Northern Farm
