Victoire Pisa Wins World Cup for Japan

18 April 2010: Victoire Pisa wins the 70th running of the GI 2000m Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas) at Nakayama Racecourse in Chiba, Japan.
The 2011 edition of the Dubal World Cup ended up being a showcase for Japan as horses from that ailing country took the top two spots with Victoire Pisa and Transcend.

Transcent went straight to the front over a tiring Tapeta surface at Maydan with eventual winner Victoire Pisa sitting back in last before launching an agressive wide early move under Mirco Demuro.

The streaking Japanese duo battled through the lane with Victorie Pisa edging a game Transcend.

Monterosso did the home team proud in a solid show finish for Godolphin.

Cape Blanco grabbed the 4th spot and was followed by Gio Ponti, Gitano Hernando, Musir, Beuna Vista, Twice Over, Prince Bishop, Golden Sword, Richard's Kid, Fly Down, and Poet's Voice.

It was a roughly run race with a pedestrian pace. The final time for the 2,000 meter race was a slow 2:05.94. Fly Down found early trouble and some others were compromised as well, including post time favorite Twice Over.

This year's Dubai World Cup really served to remind me how much I truly miss the race being run on the conventional dirt at Nad Al Sheba. Victoire Pisa had to come 5 or 6 wide to forge to the front early just to inject any pace at all into the race, as it was run at a terrible dottle. That move turned out to be the best tactical move of the race. As Victoire Pisa took the lead and never looked back.
