Ahead of the weekend’s action at Santa Anita Park, check out all of the Japanese Breeders Cup entries. We will have all you need to know about some of the more fancied Pacific raiders.
There are eight horses coming over from Japan for the Breeders Cup and three are within a great chance of going close. No Japanese horse won at the meeting last year, but two did back in 2021. Loves Only You took home the Filly & Mare Turf, meanwhile Marche Lorraine won the Distaff.
Three Japanese Breeders Cup 2023 Entries Bettors Should Look Out For
Songline – Breeders Cup Mile (1:30pm)
Toru Hayashi’s SONGLINE has had a fairly good season so far and won the Grade 1 Yasuda Kinen for the second year in a row back in June. It is fair to say that this five-year-old is being overlooked.
Yes, Songline’s up against Godolphin duo Mawj and Master Of The Seas, but she’s well within a chance of going close given her form stats of 2-1-1 in her last three runs. Backing up her Grade 1 win in the Victoria Mile with the Yasuda Kinen takes some beating on form.
She was second last time out in the Grade 2 Mainichi Okan at Tokyo when done on the line by a nose, but there is plenty to like about this mare and can be backed at +330 for the Mile. She’s one of the Japanese Breeders Cup entries certainly to keep an eye out for.
Songline takes the Yasuda Kinen (G1)!

Having won six of his last seven races, Ushba Tesoro simply cannot be ignored in this contest, especially since the scratching of Arcangelo a couple of days ago.
