The Nakayama Racecourse is situated in Funabashi in the Chiba region of Japan and in the vicinity of the capital Tokyo. It first opened its gates to racing in 1920 but major changes were completed in 1990 and boasts 4 courses.
  It holds 6 Group One races annually including the Nakayama Grand Jump over 4250 metres, and the Arima Kinen run over 2500 metres. It also hosts the Japanese 2000 Guineas the Sahsuki Sho.  
The Grand Jump was first run in 1999 and at that point was run over 4100 metres. The inaugural winner was Mejiro Pharaoh. Gokai then completed back to back victories in 2000 and 2001. However, Karasi went one better in 2005/06/07 by gaining a treble. The most recent winner was Maruka Rascal.
  The Arima Kinen is the Grand Prix race at the course and was run for the first time in 1956 when Meiji Hikari was successful. In 2008 Daiwa Scarlet, ridden by Katsumi Ando, was the winner.
