    Let's take a crack at this. Person in the question is Mr. Eizaburo Hoshino. He is known in Nishikigoi History as the one who bred Sanke.

    Aquitori,
    Very good! Yes, you are correct he is credited with breeding the 1st taisho sanke. There were tricolored koi before this but they were unrefined and we would call them specklegoi today.

    Now for a bonus round. What two types of koi did he bred to produce the first taisho sanke?

    For special extra credit what other type of koi is he creditd with developing?

    I doubt you realise how timely this post was.
    Thanks to the question and the answer I have been saved from making a complete dick of myself just 10 days before publishing.

    Thank you Brother Ray and Brother Don.

    That would be "complete ass" Bern. To be a complete dick you would have to combine extra chromasomes with bad intentions. Not you Bro.

    What do I know of koi history? Just what I read here. Thanks.
