Orfevre settling into his new life - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qy5R0UZCtZE
More pictures of Orfevre's arrival at Northern Farm. Evidently it was a longer than usual journey, having run into traffic problems which caused him to miss the ferry to Hokkaido. As you will see, comments indicate that he was at first hesitant to leave the van, surprised by the snow. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=798496490175998&set=a.798496386842675.1073741827.409661849059466&type=1&theater
A nice video summary of Orfevre's career (it is in Japanese, but pretty self explanatory) - http://web-cache.stream.ne.jp/web/jra/onetag/sub/player.html?movie=/jra_topics/2013/1222/orfevre_video&ua=4 .... he arrived at Shadai on December 25th - https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/1508547_609714339066263_538122752_n.jpg --- http://uma-furusato.com/var/cache/texttoimage/imageobject/c/2/3/c23f0f1075aa14745138ef62153106dc/.png .... and to no one's surprise, he is already booked full for 2014.

  • Northport · What an animal · 313 days ago
  • mkstorm · Reminded me of Deep Impact's brilliant final race in the Arima Kinen. What a fantastic end to an amazing career. Looking forward to seeing his progeny run. · 313 days ago
Three minutes until his final start. Go Orfevre! I can hear the crowd saying the same. How cool...

  • paul.nathan.946 · on the video the time stopped at 2.32.3 slower than last years · 314 days ago
  • Euro Trash · It was a brilliant win. Nice to see him end his career in a devastating win. Win Variation ran well also. At his best, Orfevre was always devastating. · 314 days ago
Very good gate draw for Orfevre--starting from six, while Gold Ship and Tosen Jorden will start from 14 and 16 respectively. Eishin Flash came up injured yesterday and has been retired. The Arima Kinen was to be TJ's last race anyway before. Orfevre, Desperado, Gold Ship...1-2-3
According to the JapanRacing.Jp web-site, Orfevre will be calling it a career and go off to stud after he runs in the G1 Arima Kinen in Japan on December 22nd. I was sort of hoping the connections might consider keeping Orfevre in training long enough to take a shot at the G1 Dubai Sheema Classic in late March, but you certainly can understand the decision to retire him, too. He really has no more to prove on the racetrack, as his greatness was sealed long ago.

  • travel_vic · takes a good bit of luck to win in October at Longchamps · 318 days ago
  • Northport · Yeah, they said this after the arc but I was hoping maybe they would be swayed to keep him in training one more year. However, we are pretty lucky for them to have kept him him in training as a five year old, and he has had a very goos season regardless · 317 days ago
Love him...I will cheer him on one last time next week in the Arima Kinen next week...
The final race of Orfevre's career will be the Arima Kinen at Nakayama on December 22 over 1 9/16 miles - http://www.racingpost.com/news/horse-racing/arima-kinen-swansong-for-arc-second-orfevre/1542678/#newsArchiveTabs=last7DaysNews

  • EP Taylor · Euro- Is there much rain in the forcast over the next few days? · 392 days ago
  • Euro Trash · It depends on which report you are considering. There is still a chance of more rain, but M. Fabre has stated he is expecting the going to be good to soft and he will still keep Flintshire in. I think it will end up softer than that. · 392 days ago
i would really like to see this horse come over for the BC Turf after the Arc. that would be amazing.

  • Northport · I think the purse and hometown advantage would lead to him aiming the Japan Cup · 410 days ago
  • EP Taylor · The Japan cup has to big a purse, and has far more prestige, so I think a run in their home country would be on the books. · 409 days ago
Black Caviar is a sprinter, Frankel a miler, Sea The Stars would be close to him if any i nthe last three years.. At 2000m Frankel has a chance past that Orfevre beats Frankel for fun....

  • Northport · going 1 1/4 requires stamina and agility. Ask any North American thoroughbred · 410 days ago
  • On The Gallop's · Frankel would have beat Orfevre in hand. Chuck- Frankel had no Stamina or Agility?.....lol · 410 days ago
Go Orfevre!!
Big day at Longchamp today including Orfevre looking for a Prix Foy repeat.
Speed, strength, stamina, durability, explosive turn of foot even a quarterhorse would envy and that is after running a mile and a half......the world's best thoroughbred the last 3 years....

  • MarcelloMarocco · I like Gold Ship also. Super talented. · 412 days ago
  • Northport · there is quirkiness, then there is just being crazy. In the race where he bolted you can hear the crowd chanting 'monster' in Japanese. He is too quirky for his own good · 412 days ago
