きれいな競馬はむずかしい。


マイルCS2012-観戦記-
シルポートがハナに立ったにもかかわらず、前半の800mが46秒9、後半が46秒0という、マイルCSもしくはマイルのG1レースとしては珍しいほどのスローペース。道中で馬群は固まり、口を割って引っ掛かる素振りを見せる馬も何頭か見られた。こういった展開の中では、後ろから行った馬や馬群の外を回った馬は苦しい。先行もしくは内々を器用に立ち回った馬たちが、力を発揮しやすい流れのレースであった。

勝ったサダムパテックはスローペースの中、最高のポジションでレースを進めることができた。最終コーナーに入ってゆく手前では、前に適当なスペースも出来て、武豊騎手もかなり手応えを感じていたに違いない。最後の直線に向いて、前の馬がヨレた影響で外に張り出す形で進路を取り、そこからはゴールまで一直線に突き抜けた。ムラのあるタイプではあるが、もともとクラシックや安田記念でも1番人気に推されるほどの実力馬であり、勝ち負けになる力は備えていた。枠順や展開という外的な要因が噛み合って、遅ればせながらG1タイトルを手にすることになった。

武豊騎手の久しぶりのG1制覇に水を差すようで申し訳ないが、最後の直線のあの場面では、横に避けるのではなく、縦に逃げてほしかった。一旦手綱を引いて、内でスペースが開くのを待つという選択肢があったにもかかわらず、横に張り出す形になり、玉突き事故の第2因になってしまった。あそこで焦ってしまったのは、さすがの武豊騎手も勝ちたいという本能が前面に出てしまったということだろう。その気持ちは歓迎したいし、最後の直線まで最高の騎乗だっただけに、やや後味の悪いレースになってしまった。きれいな競馬というのは本当に難しい。

グランプリボスは、前走と違い、ペースが極めて遅かったこともあり、前半はかなり力んで走っていた。それでいて、最後は大きな不利を跳ね返してサダムパテックを追い詰めた以上、古馬になってもマイルのG1を勝てる力は備えていることを証明した。イギリスに渡ったことで、長く調子を崩していた時期もあったが、今年の秋は本来の力強い姿を取り戻している。内田博幸騎手は、これで今年の秋のG1レースで2着が3回目。普通に回ってくれば勝てるのに、普通に回ってこられなかった今回ばかりはさすがに悔しいだろう。

ドナウブルーは外を回されたにもかかわらず、僅差の3着と好走した。着差以上の好走であり、夏場から使ってきたことを考えると、今回の走りは価値が高い。さすがジェンティルドンナの姉である。このあとはゆっくり休ませて、来年はどこかのG1で姉妹対決を楽しみにしたい。

堀厩舎の3頭出しは、リアルインパクトが最先着を果たした。ストロングリターンは脚質的にどうしても展開に左右されてしまう。今回は安田記念のように前が止まる流れにはならなかった。ファイナルフォームは最後の直線でのアクシデントが致命的であった。キャリアの浅い3歳馬が、あれだけの不利に巻き込まれては、さすがに巻き返しは難しかった。

武豊騎手の久々G1勝利は、観ていて気持ちの良いものでした。しかし、本文で書かれているように、審議となったシーン~ゴール後のガッツポーズは、かつての武豊ではなかったですね。本人は「自分に落ち度がない」ことを確信の上だったのでしょうが、完全に挑戦者としての騎手に映りました。決して批判している訳ではありません。取り巻く状況が、天才をこれほどまでに変えてしまったのかと、驚いているのです。
残るG1朝日杯は、早速期待馬ティーハーフで出走予定らしいので、またまた注目ですね。

こんばんは。
いつも楽しいコラムをありがとうございます。

ユタカファンだからと言うワケではありませんが、
今回の直線の件は、単純にエイシンアポロンがヨレた
事に起因することであって、そこにこそ要因があり、
池添君にある程度のペナルティがありこそすれ、
(私は、責任の所在を明らかにするために、彼に罰金ぐらいの制裁があって良かったのではないかと思ってますが)
ユタカには特に責任はないと思っています。

あそこでユタカが割って出たのは
勝つためには当然のことで、
もし、引いてしまっていたら、
当然内田さんに負けていたと思います。
私には、ユタカが焦ったとは見えず、
むしろ、勝負所!と確信的に割って入ったように思えます。

確かに内田さんにしてみたら、「致命的な不利」
ということになると思いますが、
今回はどちらかと言うと
展開と勝負のアヤだと思いますけどね。

いずれにしても、今回やっとユタカの
GI勝利騎手インタビューが見れて、
自分のことのように嬉しかったです。
それも、未勝利のマイルCSですからね~

ぜひともティーハーフで朝日杯勝って
前人未到の記録を達成して欲しいです。

ガンバレ!ユタカ!!

Posted by: 熊助 | November 21, 2012 at 01:12 AM


今回の直線での事象は、池添君の安易な騎乗にほぼ100㌫原因があります。

自らシルポートをつぶしにいく、近走のエイシンアポロンからすればややハードな、かつ強引な競馬をしながら、いざアポロンがよれたときにムチだけで矯正しようとしたわけです。
トールポピー事件(?)当時からあまり成長していないなぁ…あのことから何を学んだのだろう…

大いに疑問符がつきます。


さて。ユタカのガッツポーズを揶揄されていますが。


デビューから20余年。

ひたすらトップを走ってきました。

ここ近年は、不振を極めています。おそらく怪我以来、身体が戻らないのだと推測します。

それでもユタカは口癖のように、

もっとうまくなりたい。


何人でも、その世界のトップを20年張り続けるのが如何に難しいか。我々自身に重ね合わせて考えればわかるでしょう。

この秋、ユタカの騎乗を見ていますと、エピセアローム、トレイルブレイザー、今回のサダムパテックと、明らかに近年の後方死んだふり騎乗とは異なります。

その上で、今回のガッツポーズがあったのではないでしょうか。

レースに勝った。

それ以上に、

自分に勝った。


そんな思いがあったのではないでしょうか。


私はこのように考えました。

取越苦労さん

久しぶりに日本競馬の第一人者がG1を勝ってくれて、
嬉しく思うとともに、きれいに勝たせてあげたかったなあと思います。

でももしかしたらきれいな競馬になっていたら、グランプリボスが勝っていたかもしれません。

そう考えると、きれいな競馬、美しい競馬って本当に難しいなあと思います。

熊助さん

久しぶりの豊スマイルのインタビュー、良かったですよね。

やはり、この人が勝つと、安心してインタビューも見られます。

今回のアクシデントに関しては、いろいろ意見はあると思いますが、私も何度もリプレイを見直してみて、和田騎手が第1因であると思いますし、武豊騎手が完全な被害者だとも思いません。

私も昔からの武豊ファンではありますが、
事実は事実として書いておきたいと思いました。
たぶんどのメディアも避けると思うので。

もちろん勝つための進路取りであり、あそこで引いていたら負けていたかもしれませんが、あそこで少し待てていたら、あれだけ大きなアクシデントにもならなかったと思います。

そういう全体を考えたプレイで日本の競馬を形づくってきたのは武豊騎手ですし、なんとも皮肉な形になったなと思います。

今度勝つときは、ずばっと決めてもらいたいですね。
そのときは、私も心から喜べると思うのです。

Posted by: 治郎丸敬之 | November 21, 2012 at 11:01 AM

さっさんへ

私もあのガッツポーズはこれまでの鬱憤を少しでも晴らせたこと、そして、おっしゃるように、これまでのような後方待機策ではなく、狙ってポジションを取りに行って勝てたからこそのものだと思います。

ただ、あの時点では、後続の大きなアクシデントは知らなかったはずなので、あとからパトロールを見て、武豊騎手だからこそなおさらあそこでの判断は正しかったのか考えたと思います。

きれいなレースと勝つレースを両立することは、騎手にとっての永遠の美しいテーマなのだと思います。

勝利の影には力を発揮できずに負けた人馬の悔しさがあり、それは馬券も同じなのだなあと思います。

だから、結果として勝ちと出たときには、武豊騎手のインタビューのように、内心はどうであれ、喜びを素直に表現できるといいなあと感じました。

私も昔からの武豊ファンなので、やはり武豊のインタビューは心が落ち着きますね。
