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 is one horse of interest for Sunday running at Fukushima Racecourse:

Sunday, July 10, 2022
5th-FKS, ¥13,400,000 ($98k), Newcomers, 2yo, 2000mT
PSY BREAKER (c, 2, Uncle Mo–Downside Scenario, by Scat Daddy), a $400K purchase out of last year's Keeneland September Sale, is a half-brother to 'TDN Rising Star' Mutasaabeq (Into Mischief), third in the 2020 GI Runhappy Hopeful S. before landing that year's GII Bourbon S. over the Keeneland turf course. BlackRidge Stables acquired this colt's dam for $250K carrying Mutasaabeq at KEEJAN in 2018 and resold her to Stonestreet for $1.15 million when offered once again in foal to Into Mischief at last year's KEENOV sale. Downside Scenario is a half-sister to Cool Cowboy (Kodiac Kowboy), a two-time stakes winner in this country before landing a pair of Group 3 dirt sprints in Dubai. This is also the family of this year's GI Curlin Florida Derby hero White Abarrio (Race Day). B-BlackRidge Stables LLC (KY)
