Tuesday, 4th October 2016

At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Widden Stud's deceased Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning stallion Stratum (Redoutes Choice-Bourgeois, by Luskin Star) added a Group success when 4YO gelding Takedown (Stratum-Apamea, by Zafonic) scored by 0.1 length for trainer Gary Moore in the $300,000 Gr2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+, over 8YO gelding Our Boy Malachi (Top Echelon-Rusticate, by Rustic Amber) & 5YO mare Danish Twist (Dane Shadow-Madame Flurry, by Perugino). Takedown, who was retained to race by his breeders Widden Stud and Robert Anderson, improved his record to 6 wins (including the Gr2 The Shorts, Gr3 Gold Coast Guineas, Gr3 The Schweppervescence & Gr3 Black Opal Stakes) and 5 placings (including the Gr2 ATC Arrowfield 3YO Sprint Stakes) from 17 starts for $805,500 earnings.
