Sodashi became the first white horse to win one of Japan's classic races, cruising to victory in record time at the 81st running of the Grade 1 Oka-sho for 3-year-old fillies on Sunday.

At Hanshin Racecourse, second favorite Sodashi covered the 1,600 meters on turf in a race-record 1 minute, 31.1 seconds to edge top favorite Satono Reinas by a neck.

Sodashi, ridden by Hayato Yoshida, is the first Japanese white horse to win a classic race. The daughter of Kurofune became the first white G1 winner in Japanese Racing Association history at December's Hanshin Juvenile Fillies.

Sodashi extended her winning streak to five races.

The filly inherited her all-white coat from her white granddam Shirayukihime, which means "Snow White" in Japanese.
