Still in Love grabs Triple Crown

Kyodo

Still in Love stormed to victory in the Shuka-sho to become only the second filly in Japan racing history to capture the three-year-old Triple Crown on Sunday.

Still in Love, the second favorite after Admire Groove, crossed the finish line at the 2,000-meter Kyoto Racecourse in 1 minute, 59 seconds for her third Grade One championship following the 1,600-meter Oka-sho and the 2,400-meter Japanese Oaks.

Jockey Hideaki Miyuki, 27, and trainer Shoichi Matsumoto claimed the 89-million yen prize money.
