Japan Salutes a Champion as Romantic Warrior Triumphs in Yasuda Kinen

A lather of sweat before the start, Hong Kong’s favourite son, Romantic Warrior (IRE), added another chapter to his illustrious story with victory in the $3,264,000 Group 1 Yasuda Kinen (1600m) at Tokyo on Sunday.

Given a masterful ride by James McDonald, Danny Shum’s international traveller sat close to the speed set by Dobune.

Shouldering his way into the clear, the 6-year-old Romantic Warrior safely held the chasing pack to defeat last season’s Group 1 Mile Championship winner Namur (Harbinger)under Yutaka Take by a half-length.

With the favourite Soul Rush (Rulership), ridden by Joao Moreira, a nose back in third from Romantic Warrior.

“I’m always lost for words when I ride Romantic Warrior because he has such a big heart and always tries his best.

“It’s an absolute privilege to be here, and it’s very special to win a Group 1 on my first ride in such a competitive jurisdiction.”

The 6-year-old gelding Romantic Warrior was purchased by Mick Kinane on behalf of the Hong Kong Jockey Club for 300,000gns at the 2019 Tattersalls October Yearling Sale.

Bred in Ireland by Tim Rooney and David Egan of Corduff Stud, Romantic Warrior was sold at the Hong Kong International Sale to Peter Lau for HK$4.8 million ($814,000).

Romantic Warrior is the third foal of the Street Cry (IR) mare Folk Melody, which was an €82,000 purchase for Blandford Bloodstock from the Godolphin draft at the 2016 Goffs November Breeding Stock Sale.

He had to give up the ride on Kingsford Smith Cup winner I Wish I Win but it’s proven a masterstroke for star jockey James McDonald, who piloted Cox Plate champ Romantic Warrior to a famous victory in the $A3.7m Group 1 Yasuda Kinen in Tokyo on Sunday.

McDonald had won four Group 1s on the Hong Kong star heading into the Japan feature, which represented a new test given Romantic Warrior was dropping back to 1600m for the first time in more than a year.

Jumping from barrier seven, McDonald had Romantic Warrior perfectly poised behind the pace in the early to middle stages before forcing his way clear and hitting the front inside the 200m.

For a brief moment, local hopes Namur and Soul Rush loomed strongly as winning hopes as they made their runs down the middle of the course, but Romantic Warrior responded under vigorous riding from McDonald to win by a half-length.

“It was very, very special. There’s no words for him, Romantic Warrior just keeps delivering every time,” McDonald said.

“Everything went really well all week, it’s been smooth sailing for him … to win such a prestigious race away from home is so, so special. The reception we received after the race was something that only one particular race (the Melbourne Cup, can match).”

McDonald said he couldn’t have written a better script for Romantic Warrior heading into the race.

“We dream of those runs in big races because it doesn’t happen very often, but everything went very well from the start – on Thursday, when the barriers came out, undefeated from barrier seven, he’s won two Hong Kong Cups, a Cox Plate and now the Yasuda Kinen.

In his glittering career so far, McDonald has ridden the likes of champion sprinter Nature Strip, generational star Anamoe and Melbourne Cup winner Verry Elleegant … but he said Romantic Warrior stood above them all.

“He’s the best … I wouldn’t say easily, I’ve ridden some good ones and he’s definitely surpassed them. When you ride such good horses you hate comparing them, but I’m very lucky to have ridden champion racehorses over certain distances.

“He’s just got a phenomenal will to win, he positions so well, he’s absolutely push button to ride every time and … his courage, he doesn’t know how to lay down and he loves winning. His record speaks to that and I’m just very proud to be on his back.”

McDonald’s victory marked the third country in which McDonald has piloted Romantic Warrior to Group 1 success. He followed up his 2023 Cox Plate (2040m) victory with three Hong Kong majors.

Before sacrificing not just his ride aboard I Wish I Win, but also Queensland Derby hope Tannhauser, to make the trek to Japan.

Sunday’s Yasuda Kinen aboard Romantic Warrior was McDonald’s 18th Group 1 winner for 2023-24 – 13 of those coming in Australia.

In TAB’s pre-nominations market, Romantic Warrior is currently a $6 second favourite behind Pride of Jenni ($4.50) to defend his Cox Plate crown.
