Stakes one-two for Pyro

Kenshinko beat Meisho Hario in the Listed July Stakes

G3-winner Kenshinko gained more Black Type on Saturday, 17 July when victorious in the Listed July Stakes at Fukushima. Coming from the rear of the field, he came clear to record a five-length triumph over his paternal half-brother Meisho Hario.

Now the winner of four of his 11 races, this was Kenshinko’s second Stakes triumph after the G3 Leopard Stakes last August.

Bred by Nicks Co. Ltd, Kenshinko is a son of the ten-time winner Matriarca (Cryptic Rascal).

Pyro is perennially a leading Dirt sire in Japan and again sits in the top five in the nation by number of winners.
