In this continuing series, Alan Carasso takes a look ahead at US-bred and/or conceived runners entered for the upcoming weekend at the tracks on the Japan Racing Association circuit, with a focus on pedigree and/or performance in the sales ring. Here are the horses of interest for this weekend running at Kyoto and Nakayama Racecourses:

4th-KYO, ¥11,400,000 ($106k), Newcomers, 3yo, 1200m
TIMING NOW (c, 3, Tapit–Her Smile, by Include) is the latest foal to make the races from the 2011 GI Prioress S. winner and cost $750K as a KEESEP yearling in the fall of 2017. Her Smile, whose 4-year-old daughter Pink Sands (Tapit) was an impressive allowance winner at Gulfstream Park Dec. 27, is a half-sister to MSW Moon River (Bluegrass Cat) and to the dam of SW & GSP Tricks To Doo (Into Mischief). KatieRich Farms acquired Her Smile for $1.5 million at Keeneland November in 2014. B-KatieRich Farms (KY)
