In this continuing series, Alan Carasso takes a look ahead at US-bred and/or conceived runners entered for the upcoming weekend at the tracks on the Japan Racing Association circuit, with a focus on pedigree and/or performance in the sales ring. Here are the horses of interest for this weekend running at Kyoto, Niigata and Tokyo Racecourses:

Saturday, May 4, 2019
6th-KYO, ¥13,720,000 ($123k), Allowance, 3yo, 1600mT
ERZULIE (f, 3, Graydar–Miss Luna, by Henny Hughes), a debut fourth in a 1400-meter main-track maiden at Chukyo Mar. 9, cut back to six panels to graduate when last seen at that venue two weeks later (video, gate 2). Produced by a daughter of SW & MGISP In Her Glory (Miswaki) and from the family of champion Classic Empire (Pioneerof the Nile), this $70K Keeneland September graduate switches to the turf for the first time Saturday. B-Springland Farm (KY)

9th-TOK, ¥34,620,000 ($311k), Allowance, 4yo/up, 1600m
SHIVAJI (c, 3, First Samurai–Indian Bay, by Indian Charlie), a $90K KEESEP purchase turned $540K OBS April breezer, has more than earned his keep, with three wins from 10 starts while never out of the top three in his career. He exits back-to-back runner-up efforts going seven furlongs at Hanshin last month and stretches out to the metric mile for the first time since scoring in fast time over course and distance last June (see below, gate 12). B-Hinkle Farms (KY)



Sunday, May 5, 2019
3rd-NII, ¥9,550,000 ($86k), Maiden, 3yo, 1800m
PIONEEER BAROWS (c, 3, Cairo Prince–Dattts Lady Di, by Proud Citizen) has one appearance under his belt, a well-backed fourth-place effort over this trip in the mud at Nakayama Mar. 9. A half-sister to the SP Lindy (War Front)–dam of the smart Japanese-based La La Chrysaor (Speightstown)–and out of a half-sister to Japanese MSW Grab Your Heart (Deputy Commander), the dark bay was a $110K KEENOV weanling, a $175K KEESEP RNA and $400K Fasig-Tipton March juvenile. B-Bret Jones (KY)
