Uma Musume Pretty Derby Synopsis
In a world very similar to ours, the great racehorses of the past were given the opportunity to be reborn as “uma musume”, girls with the ears and tail of a horse, but who also count on their speed and endurance. The best of these girls have the privilege of studying at Tracen Academy in Tokyo, hoping to gain fame and fortune as both runners and idols.
Special Week, a small town high school girl-horse who has just been transferred to Tracen, is determined to fulfill her promise to her mother to become the best girl-horse in Japan.
