I notice this 3 yr old filly won the Japanese Oaks on firm turf, 1m 4f yesterday.
1st prize £973,713 with the 5th getting £74,426, 17 ran.
Perhaps someone could tell me if :-
a] the prize money is because of a Tote monopoly
b] outsiders, i.e. foreigners, appear to be excluded, but I’m not sure about that, nevertheless a competitive field. How many in our Oaks coming up…
