Kentucky Derby Horse Profile

Japan (GB) is a progeny of Galileo (IRE) and student of the legendary Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien. With a strong female line in Shastye (IRE) by Danehill, Japan boasts of 3 lifetime starts with 2 wins and all on turf. With such a strong family pedigree, Japan may be set to be most competative on turf than dirt, so it will be good to watch him along the European Road to the Kentucky Derby trail.
