TB, B, F, Foaled Marched 11, 2017
Aizu is by Japan and out of Tropical Racing and Circle 8 Ranch’s Red Baroness. As of March 2021, she has been on the board 8 out of 10 starts in her racing career with $75,481 in earnings – averaging $7,548 per start.
Her sire, Japan (Medaglia d’Oro / Maya, by Capote) was a $300,000 yearling at the Keeneland 2013 Yearling Sale. Before retiring, Japan was the leading son by Medaglia d’Oro. He is out of the Graded Stakes Producing Capote mare, Maya. During his career, Japan was on the board 4 out of 5 starts. He broke his maiden by seven lengths and then bypassed his Allowance conditions by jumping straight into the $150,000 Easy Goer Stakes on Belmont Stakes Day, proving best over a seasoned cast of 3-year-old Stakes Winners. Japan ran 1 1/16 miles in 1:42.14 in the Easy Goer, propelling him into graded stakes company in his next start. At Saratoga, Japan battled Gr.1 Winner Texas Red and Gr. 1 Winner Frosted to the wire in the $600,000 Gr.2 Jim Dandy Stakes where he came in third. Japan is full brother to Multiple Stakes-Winning Millionaire, Al Khali.
Aizu’s dam, Red Baroness (Smarty Jones / Must Be a Lady, by Lord At War) is proving herself an excellent broodmare – as of March 2021 she has produced 2 winners out of 2 starters – including Black Type Placed Yafa.
