Y KAWADA

  • Japan

Yuga's father Takayoshi Kawada was a former jockey and a trainer at Saga Racecourse in Japan so racing was in the blood.

He was granted a Japan Racing Association licence in March 2004 and rode his first winner the same month at Hanshin Racecourse.

The breakthrough season came in 2008 when landing his first Classic race and G1 on Captain Thule in the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas).

Since 2010, has regularly finished among the top 10 jockeys riding on the JRA circuit. Best year came in 2013 when second with 120 wins and had a great 2019.

Has been associated with some of Japan's best horses of recent times, including crack fillies Gentildonna and Harp Star, plus Japan's 2015 Horse of The Year, Maurice.

One of only eight jockeys in JRA history to have won all five Classic races in Japan. Has ridden over 1200 winners in Japan, including 12 at G1 level.
