The Teio Sho (帝王賞) is a Japanese domestic Grade 1 race. This race began in 1978 as a spring championship race of southern Kanto region horseracing.

It was later opened to JRA horses in 1986. Then, there were few opportunities for JRA and NAR horses to run in the same race, because JRA and NAR were individually operated. This trial promoted an expansion of exchanges between the two organizations. In 1997, it was graded as Domestic Grade 1.

The race is run over 2000 metres at Ohi Racecourse in late June. Hokuto Vega, Admire Don, Vermilion, Espoir City and Hokko Tarumae won the race before winning the JRA Award for Best Dirt Horse.

Most successful horses (2 wins):

  • Champion Star – 1988, 1991
  • Furioso – 2008, 2010
  • Hokko Tarumae – 2013, 2015
