Races from Japan’s most important racetracks are available via America Simulcast from April 2020.

Horse racing has been part of Japanese history for centuries but was recognized in European format in the spring of 1862, since when it has had a long history in that country. In 1923 the first law regulating the sport was passed and since then betting has been allowed and has become an industry that moves millions of dollars annually. The most important Japanese race is the Japan Cup, which since 1981 has brought together the world’s equestrian elite on the last Sunday of November each year.

From April 2020 we have complete meetings and updates on the main races taking place in Japan. You will have information on each race, its horses as well as minute-by-minute updates on changes in riders, retirements, approximate start times and results.
