Nationality: Japanese

Background:
Age: 57. Yoshito Yahagi grew up at the vicinity of Oi Racecourse in Tokyo, as his father Kazuto Yahagi is a former trainer and jockey in the regional NAR circuit. Fond of racing, tennis and cycling as a teenager, Yahagi travelled to Australia to learn the skills of training at Randwick, Flemington and Toowoomba Racecourses, before coming back to Japan to start his career as a stable assistant in 1984. In 1990, he spent three months working with trainer Geoff Wragg in the UK. Yahagi received his JRA training licence in 2004 and has since become one of the top JRA trainers, having won the JRA Award twice, as the Best Trainer with most races won in 2014 and 2016. He has sent out no less than 568 JRA winners (as of 19 November) including 50 this season, sitting 2nd in the JRA trainer's standings. Grand Prix Boss gave Yahagi his first career G1 wins in the 2010 Asahi Hai Futurity Stakes and 2011 NHK Mile Cup, followed by Deep Brillante's success in the 2012 Japanese Derby. He notched two more G1 wins this year, thanks to Mozu Ascot in the G1 Yasuda Kinen in June, and most recently Lys Gracieux in the G1 Queen Elizabeth II Cup in November. Hong Kong wins: 0
