Gold Ship mows them down in Arima Kinen

JAPAN'S leading three-year-old colt Gold Ship (Naosuke Sugai/Hiroyuki Uchida) produced a stunning display to beat his elders to take the Arima Kinen, the nation's end-of-season grand prix at Nakayama on Sunday.

As they approached the final turn, Gold Ship had to circle the entire field, finally being produced at least eight horses wide down the straight, where he still appeared to have plenty to do.
