Further Group Glory For Son Of No Nay Never
Group 1 performer Unicorn Lion (6h No Nay Never - Muravka, by High Chaparral) returned to winning ways in Sunday’s Grade 3 Fukushima Kinen.
The Yoshito Yahagi-trained entire won a Group 3 over the same trip of ten furlongs last season and went on to finish second to the multiple Group 1 winner Chrono Genesis in the Group 1 Takarazuka Kinen. Breaking smartly on Sunday, he made all under Yusaku Kokubun and was not for catching, as he led by a length and three quarters on the line.
Unicorn Lion is owned by Lion Race Horse Co Ltd and was bought by JS Company as a yearling for 850,000gns. Bred by Desert Star Phoenix, the son of No Nay Never is a half-brother to Group 1 scorer The Wow Signal (Starspangledbanner) and Stakes winner Miss Infinity (Rock Of Gibraltar).
