Deep Impact back at races


Deep Impact, the undefeated Japanese Derby winner, returns to the races at Hanshin on Sunday in the $938,500 Kobe Shimbun Hai, a 1 1/4-mile Grade 2 prep for the Japanese St. Leger at Kyoto on Oct. 23.

The Kobe Shimbun Hai will be the first outing for the 5-for-5 Deep Impact, a son of Sunday Silence trained by Yasuo Ikee, since his five-length triumph in the Japanese Derby on May 29.
