2016 Crown Perth-Winterbottom Stks Group 1 November 26 - Ascot

Takedown wins 2016 Crown Perth-Winterbottom Stks Group 1 $1Million at Ascot (WA) 3yo+, 1200m.

The Gary Moore-trained sprinter Takedown Horseform maintained his consistent form with a career highlight in taking out this Group One race, his seventh win in 20 starts to date (which includes six placings). He began well, settled nicely outside the leader (Sheidel), challenged that mare strongly on straightening and lifted gamely to hit the front on passing the 50m to win well.

Sheidel Horseform was quickly away and went straight to the front, going along a quite a good tempo (first 600m in 34.99). She was challenged at the home turn but was only headed at the 50m before fighting well for second after running a bold race.


Rock Magic Horseform raced in ninth place, between runners, got a split on straightening the then finished well for a good third.

First Among Equals Horseform settled near last in the 12-horse field, went widest of all at the home turn and impressed with his late-closing fourth, beaten a length.

The second favourite Malaguerra Horseform had a good run in third place on the rails, got along the inner at the 100m and then battled on quite well for (1.1 lengths) fifth while the favourite Terravista Horseform had a good run in fifth place, looked a threat at the home turn but then weakened to finish (8.3 lengths) tenth, racing many lengths below his best, suggesting that something may have been amiss.
