―Air Groove

Air Groove (エアグルーヴ, Ea Gurūvu) is a supporting character in Uma Musume: Pretty Derby.

Because of her top class abilities, she is praised with the title "Empress," a horse girl that can accomplish anything perfectly.


Air Groove is a horse girl that has excellent looks and grades, and maintains a pride that is fittingly equal to her abilities. She has a bit of a thorny arrogance but it’s only because of her great sincerity and respect for racing. Only those who are victorious may catch a glimpse of some compassion or kindness from her.

She is difficult for Fine Motion's sister to deal with.


Like a flower blooming on a high mountain ridge, only to be seen from far away and cannot be touched [1]. She is said to be a horse girl with attractive looks.

She has short brown hair and azure eyes with red eye shadows. For accessories, she has a small yellow bow with miniature chains connected to the back of her left ear.



  • In the early version of this project, she has an androphobia referred to a real-life event.
  • She hates flashing lights, especially camera flashes.
  • She also hates all bugs, except for ladybugs.

Real Life

Air Groove is a racehorse in the middle of 1990s. In her age, it was difficult for mares to defeat sires, though, she fought with lots of sires and won Tenno Sho.

  • Both she and her mother Dyna Carle won Japanese Oaks two generations in a row.
    • Her daughter Admire Groove couldn't win the Oaks, but won the Queen Elizabeth Cup twice in a row. Her son Duramente also won G1s. So, her family line won any G1s four generations in a row.
  • In the paddock of Shuka Sho, she became too excited by camera flashes and lost in 10th. After that, flashing lights are prohibited in Japanese racecourse.
  • At the 1997 Japan Cup, a UK-bred racehorse Pilsudski entered in the paddock erected. He then proceeded to win the race by a neck over Air Groove while staying in heat throughout the race.
    • He is a brother of Fine Motion. In the game verison, Fine's sister appeares and approaches Air Groove.
    • Her androphobia in the early version was a reference to this episode. In Uma Musume, racehorses are all girls, so this personality doesn't match the scene.
