Border Rebel Wins Takeover Target Stakes

Thursday, 24th June 2010

Former Coolmore shuttler & champion 2YO Johannesburg (Hennessy-Myth, by Ogygian) added a black-type success when favoured & top-weighted 4YO gelding Border Rebel (Johannesburg-Frontier, by Flying Spur) scored a 2.25-lengths victory in yesterday's $100,000 Listed Takeover Target Stakes (1200m) at Gosford in NSW. Border Rebel (ridden by Tim Bell for trainer Sue Grills) defeated fellow 4YO gelding Youthful Jack (Youthful Legs-Formative, by White Bridle) & 6YO entire My Vegas (Royal Academy-Smytzer's Century, by Geiger Counter). Border Rebel (a $26,000 yearling consigned by Jonel Park Thoroughbreds at the 2007 Magic Millions National Sale) now has 12 wins (also including April's Listed Hinkler Handicap over 1200m at Eagle Farm) & 3 placings (including last start's Gr2 QTC Cup over 1300m at Eagle Farm on June 5) from 16 starts for $469,150 earnings.
