Takeover Target to return at Flemington
TAKEOVER TARGET looks set to resume in the Age Classic over 6f at Melbourne Cup venue Flemington on November 8.
Trainer Joe Janiak, speaking on racingandsports.com.au, has issued an upbeat bulletin on the globe-trotting gelding since he went back into work in Canberra after scans cleared him of a tendon issue that arose while he was in Britain in June.
Takeover Target has been in light work in Canberra for three weeks under the care of Janiak's son Ben since he was released from quarantine following his return to Australia.
"He's been in quiet work since he got out of quarantine," Janiak said. "We'll consider taking him to Melbourne early but we'll make a call on that later on."
