We are proud of the Thoroughbred pedigrees available in Japan for several reasons.
Firstly, the high quality of bloodlines in Japan definitely deserves your attention. Japanese breeders have continuously been importing bloodstock of the highest caliber from around the world to upgrade the pedigree of Japanese Thoroughbreds. Each year, classic winners from the USA and Europe as well as winners of other top international races from the most sought-after sirelines are imported into Japan as stallions. Plenty of blue-blooded broodmares are also imported into Japan, which has added to the vitality of Japanese bloodlines and helped to keep the pedigrees in Japan world-class.
Secondly, diversity is also a factor that makes Japanese pedigrees attractive. Japanese racing is conducted on both turf and dirt and at various distances, from sprinting to staying races, and this is reflected in the wide variety of bloodlines available here in Japan. This means buyers are likely to be able to find the type of horse they need for racing in any country, be it a sprinter, miler or stayer.
