« 3頭が良く見えるも、決断は京都競馬場で。 | Main | 天皇賞秋を当てるために知っておくべき3つのこと »

ありがとう、オルフェーヴル。

Kikkasyo01

京都競馬場まで菊花賞を観戦しに行ってきました。途中、中之島と中書島を間違えるアクシデントはあったものの、なんとかお昼過ぎまでには競馬場までたどり着き、久しぶりにゆったりと競馬を楽しみました。異常な熱気を予想していたのですが、意外にも人は少なく、まるで普通のG1レースのようでした。たぶん、普通の人にとっては普通のG1レースなのですね。少し拍子抜けしながらも、京都競馬場を訪れたときには必ず立ち寄っている場所に行きました。

Kikkasyo03

『競馬ブック』の「おもひでの名勝負」にライスシャワーの菊花賞を書こうか迷ったぐらい、私にとって彼はおもひでの名馬です。たくさんの競馬ファンがお参りしているようで、ライスシャワーの石碑の前にはいつもたくさんの花や人参が供えられています。本日の菊花賞のために特別に作られた「3冠馬の蹄跡」というパンフレットも誰かによって立てかけてあり、素敵だなあと思いました。ライスシャワーは3冠を阻止した馬でしたが、おそらくオルフェーヴルには声援を送っていたに違いありません。私は手を合わせました。

その後、競馬場のあちこちを回って、食事をしたり、ターフィーショップに行ったりしました。ターフィーショップに「ROUNDERS」の創刊号があるかと思い、探してみたところ、どこにもありません。どうやら売り切れのようですね。ほとんどの競馬場やGateJでも、売り切れてしまっているようです。ありがたいことです。「ROUNDERS」vol.2を置いていただく際には、その横に創刊号も並べていただけると嬉しいなと思いました。

Kikkasyo02そんなことをしているうちに、菊花賞の発走時刻は近づき、空がどんよりと曇り始め、ぽつぽつと雨が降ってきました。なんとか菊花賞まではもってくれと願いつつ、パドックに向かいました。3冠馬をひと目見ようと、さすがに人だかりができていて、遠目にオルフェーヴルを確認するので精一杯。オルフェーヴルにはジワっと程良い気合が乗っていました。後ろを歩いていたウインバリアシオンが恐ろしいぐらいに落ち着いていて印象に残りました。騎乗の合図が掛かり、池添謙一騎手は2、3度軽くジャンプをして、緊張をほぐしてからオルフェーヴルに跨りました。

勝負のポイントは1周目のスタンド前だと思っていましたが、前のポジションにつけながらも、きっちり折り合いが付いている姿を観て安心しました。最終コーナーを回る勢いは、あのナリタブライアンやディープインパクトという過去の3冠馬のそれでしたし、ゴール前は抑える余裕さえありました。ゴールしたあとのオルフェーヴルの黄金の馬体がターフビジョンに映し出されると、京都競馬場の競馬ファンからは拍手が起こりました。私はこの雰囲気を味わいたいがために、京都競馬場まで足を運んだのでした。そう思うと、嬉しくて、自然と涙が溢れてきました。

シンザンが菊花賞を制して3冠馬となったレースの後、祝勝会を終えた武田文吾調教師がシンザンの様子を窺いに馬房に立ち寄ったところ、さすがのシンザンも精根尽き果てて横になっていました。その姿を見て、武田文吾調教師は「酒飲まぬ馬憐れみつつ菊の宴」という句を残したそうです。さすがのオルフェーヴルも今日は疲れ果てて、横になって寝ていることでしょう。オルフェーヴルは私のために走ったわけではなく、日本の競馬のために走ったわけでもないのですが、それでもオルフェーヴルにはありがとうと言いたいのです。

Thankyou

自分が目の当たりにした牡馬の三冠馬は
ディープインパクトしか無いですが
もうこれから何年も出ないんだろうな〜と思ってました

まさか二度も三冠馬を見れるとは思ってなかったです

しかし凄い馬ですね!オルフェーブル!
ディープやルドルフまで完璧な成績ではないにしろ
それを一気に払拭するような圧巻の勝利でした

逆に完璧じゃないからこそ、この勝利に魅力に感じてしまいます

これから古馬相手にどんなレースをしてくれるか楽しみです

治郎丸さん、こんにちは。

ライスシャワー碑の写真掲載、ありがとうございます。
僕も年ですね、最近は涙腺が緩くなってしまって・・・(汗)

オルフェーヴル、強い競馬でしたね。
古馬との対決が楽しみです♪

追伸:「ROUNDERS」楽しみにしてます。

Posted by: えいじ@栄光の競馬道 | October 24, 2011 at 08:13 AM

治郎丸さんこんにちは。京都遠征お疲れ様でした!

3冠馬が誕生する瞬間を初めて見届けられて、私も本当に幸せです。池添騎手や池江調教師をはじめ陣営の皆様、そしてオルフェーヴルには感謝してもしきれません。
それにしても、毎度毎度想像を超えたレースぶりには驚かされてばかりです。池添騎手も素晴らしい騎乗だったと思いますし、とにかく強かったですね…。
あとはどうか怪我なく、実りある競走生活を送ってほしいです。まずは古馬との対決になりますが、とても楽しみです。

Posted by: クロサキ | October 24, 2011 at 06:24 PM

あさひさん

こんにちは。

私もそう思います。

完璧でないからこその強さがオルフェーヴルにはあり、その強さこそが、これから世界で戦ってゆくときに生きてくるのではないでしょうか。

それにしても、ディープの3冠も生で観れたなんて羨ましい限りです。

Posted by: 治郎丸敬之 | October 25, 2011 at 07:50 PM

えいじさん

こんにちは。

えいじさんもライスシャワー好きでしたか。

私にとってステイヤーといえば、やはりライスシャワーです。

今回のオルフェーヴルの3冠達成の瞬間はなんだか嬉しくて涙が出てしまいました(私も間違いなく歳です)。

古馬との対戦や海外でのレースが楽しみですね。

ROUNDERSも予約してくださってありがとうございます。

楽しみにしておいてください。

Posted by: 治郎丸敬之 | October 25, 2011 at 07:52 PM

クロサキさん

オルフェーヴル勝ちましたね!

オルフェーヴルと関係者の方々には感謝を伝えたいですね。

そして、これからも新しい世界を切り拓いて行ってほしいものです。

今回もますます成長したオルフェーヴルの姿を見て、もう夢は来年へと広がっていきます。

FIFA ultimate team is a unique game format and I like the FIFA ultimate team's chemistry feature because it doesn't allow one player to be a god and every one that can't afford him get flogged game after game.

These websites are offering the FIFA 14 coins for sale at different rates thus it is better to compare the rates first before offering randomly. At least, however, it isn't there out of the box, as unlike the Xbox One, which ships with a Kinect unit, the PS4 keeps its price lower by not shipping the PS4 Camera with the base unit.
