Boom Time arrives to Japan ahead of Japan Cup (G1)
15 Nov 2017 | Japan Racing Association 

Grade 1 Japan Cup contender and this year’s Caulfield Cup winner Boom Time arrived in Japan safely on Tuesday morning. The 6-year-old horse trained by David Hayes was then transported to the Quarantine Stable at the JRA Horseracing School in Shiroi, Chiba Prefecture, completing a 14-hour trip from his home stable in Australia.

Boom Time is the first of four Japan Cup foreign contenders to arrive in Japan, with the two German-trained challengers – Guignol and Iquitos – scheduled to arrive later on Tuesday and the Ireland-trained Idaho to land on Thursday afternoon.

“He travelled well and seems to be in the same condition as he was back home,” assistant trainer Gary Fennessy said. “The trainer has instructed me to give him the same training menu as back home on the dirt course. We plan to do some fast work here at the Horseracing School on Friday or Saturday.”

The 37th running of the Japan Cup will be held on Nov. 26 at Tokyo Racecourse over 2,400 meters.
