Monday’s “Close-up Gendai +” reported on Kitasan Black, a Japanese thoroughbred racehorse owned by well-known Japanese “enka” singer Saburo Kitajima. The program said that although Kitasan Black was not regarded as a promising racehorse at first, Kitajima cared for the horse as if it were his own son, making it into one of the fastest racehorses in Japan. The program looked back at the life of Kitajima, 81, and explored what made Kitasan Black so fast. Kitasan Black will retire this year.
