Hinkle Farms-bred Group 3 winner Shivaji (6h o/o Indian Bay) added a Listed placing to his record in the Azuchijo Stakes at Chukyo on May 30 in Japan one start after his stakes victory.

Racing over seven furlongs on the turf, the First Samurai horse raced in midpack but made a big move down the stretch. In the end, he was just a length behind the winner. It was the sixth second place finish for the runner, who has also recorded six wins and three thirds in 23 starts.

Shivaji was a $90,000 Keeneland September purchase by Grassroots Training and Sales at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. The following year he became a $540,000 OBS April 2-Year-Old when purchased by his Japanese connections from his yearling buyer.
