Short Break For Takeover Target
Meanwhile Australian 6YO gelding Takeover Target (Celtic Swing-Shady Stream, by Archregent) "will have a short let-up after finishing a brave 3rd in the Gr1 Golden Jubilee Stakes (6 furlongs) at Royal Ascot on Saturday" (4 days after his victory in the Gr2 King's Stand Stakes over 5 furlongs) reported thoroughbredinternet.com. Trainer Joe Janiak summed up: "We can't be disappointed, but Tuesday probably took its toll in the last furlong. He tried his hardest. He was a little flat at the finish & I think the back-up caught up with him." Takeover Target is 1 of 66 entries for the Gr1 Darley July Cup (6 furlongs) at Newmarket & Janiak also confirmed he "has the Japan's Sprinter's Stakes at Nakayama in October in mind for Takeover Target".
