Welcome to this website.
I am a credential photographer approved by Japan Racing Association.And I am the first Japanese Breeders' Cup official photographer.
At first,please look at this website as long as you can.

I began this weblog as my hobby at first,doing the other job.I couldn't imagine I would do photography work when I began to write this weblog in 2008. Wonderful fortune comes to me and I can work my current job with many helps.Then I received a chance to photograph American Pharaoh's first win at Del Mar,fortunately.

This weblog title means "author's job" now.I would appreciate it if you would understand this weblog's name comes from author's current job.

So,I won't change name of this weblog as ever.And I love this name “HORSE PHOTOGRAPH!"

Good see you, Kyoto!

I went to Kyoto Racecourse last Sunday for the first time in a year.
It rained heavily. But I enjoyed as usual.

Deirdre (JP), by Harbinger (GB), the out of mare Reizend (JP) by Special Week (JP), ridden by Christophe Lemaire, won Shuka Sho (G1,turf 2000 meters, the last leg of Japanese filly triple crown races).
I guess she has strong hard because she ran very well under the hard condition.
This is the first graded 1 race winning for Harbinger's foal. His first crop debuted in 2014. Some his foals have won graded races.
He doesn't have any Sunday Silence's blood at all. Now, almost of broodmares in Japan has Sunday Silence's blood.
He will get a chance to cover many broodmares continuously.

Real Steel came back to winner's circle

Real Steel (JP), by Deep Impact (JP), ridden by Mirco Demuro, won Mainichi Okan (G2,turf 1800 meters, for 3yo and up) last Sunday at Tokyo Racecourse.
He notched 3 graded stakes race winning involved Dubai Turf,G1.
He was out of his shape after Dubai winning in 2016. The strong horse we know, our Real Steel, came back to the front of us.

His connections indicated he will go to Breeders' Cup Mile after the race. But they decided to stay in Japan and aim to win Tenno Sho (Autumn) finally.
Of course, I wished he would go to Del Mar. But I believe this decision becomes good for him.

Nakayama Autumn Meeting was end

Red Falx (JP), by Swept Overboard (US), got consecutive wins in Sprinters Stakes (G1,turf 1200 meters) at Nakayama Racecourse. He is entitled to run in Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint at Del Mar in Nov. But his connections don't mention about his next race yet.
I wish he will go to Del Mar.


Nakayama Autumn Meeting was end last Sunday.Japan Racing starts their races at Tokyo and Kyoto for 2 months from next weekend.
I go to Tokyo this weekend. Soul Stirring (JP), by Frankel (GB), the Oaks winner, aims to win Mainichi Okan (G2,turf 1800 meters) at Tokyo this weekend.Many fans are waiting for her.
I notice how she will run this weekend.
