Frankel, the highest-rated horse in recalibrated IFHA's standings with 140 pounds,
has finally sired a winner in Japan.

In contrast to England and France, where Frankel already has sired winners,
Japan did not have any winner of Frankel.

Rise Eagle, the first ever Frankel starter in Japan, out of Rose of Summer,
made a debut on July 2nd as a short-priced favorite.
But despite of high expectation from his connections and fans,
Rise Eagle could only manage to finish 5th, well beaten six lengths behind the winner.

Given Galieo crops' poor performance record in Japan, it was said after the race that
Frankel will continue to sire winners all over the world, except for Japan.
Some people on the internet even joked; Japan could be the first country to hold
a contest to determine the worst high-priced first year crop of Frankel.

However, these recognitions were soon blown away as Soul Stirring, a daughter of Frankel
out of mutiple grade 1 winning mare Stacelita, wins on her debut at Sapporo racetrack on July 31st.

Sent off as a 7-10 odds on favorite and ridden by Christophe Lemaire,
Soul Stirring faced seven rivals in 9 furlongs race on turf.
Racing in middle of the pack, Soul Starring gradually starts to make move at far turn.
Then she kept on closing the gap between the leader,
and managed to strike the front just at the line to win by a neck in a time of 1:51.4.

The winning performance of Soul Stirring may not seem visually impressive,
but the fact that she recorded even sectional time for the last 3 furlongs at least proved her talent,
and does give her fans and connections some bright future prospects .

(cited tweet above: Soul Stirring's sectional times for last 5 furlongs estimated from race video
12.3 - 11.9 - 11.4 - 11.4 - 11.4)

With Soul Starring's victory, Frankel adds the first winner outside of Europe,
and now has a winner in three different nations.
