Emblems has won the Listed Takeover Target Stakes at Gosford Racecourse today January 10, 2014.
The four-year-old won by a neck in front of Dances On Stars, who finished well for a close second, and My Destiny, who placed in third position.
Emblems was paying odds of $1.85 to win the 2014 Takeover Target Stakes at Ladbrokes.com.au.
The Shamardal entire has now won six of his 12 race starts and has earned more than $260,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.
Emblems made it three in a row this preparation, having won his past two race starts in Sydney.
His most recent win, prior to today’s, 2014 Takeover Target Stakes victory, came in the $85,000 Rosehill Gardens Handicap at Rosehill on December 21.
While trainer Peter Snowden is at the Gold Coast in preparation for tomorrow’ Magic Millions Day, stable representative Brad Widdup was at the track to see Emblems win the race.
“He’s in good form. He’s hit his straps,” said Widdup.
“He’s racing well enough and he’s really putting it together.
“Peter had him aimed at this. He’s got the stakes race behind him (now).”
Emblems was ridden by stable jockey Kerrin McEvoy in the 2014 Takeover Target Stakes.
“It was a hard test out there. They really served it up to me,” McEvoy said.
“I rode him really aggressively. He was good enough to hold them off. Full credit to the horse.
“He’s a nice sprinter. He’s up to winning some nice Black Type races throughout his career I think.”
