Lightly raced four-year-old I’ll Take The Jag recorded a very good fourth when resuming this time in before not all went to plan next time out.
Racing over the 1400m of the Tab.com.au (Benchmark 72) on Wednesday at Warwick Farm, the John Sargent-trained gelding produced another top class win.
Ridden for the first time be leading jockey James McDonald, I’ll Take The Jag was away well from the middle of the line before going forward to settle in fourth position behind the leader, getting the run of the race.
Ready to pounce as the runners rounded the home turn, McDonald was forced to pull the gelding out wide to commence his run.
Once clear, I’ll Take The Jag gathered in the race leader and held off the late charge of Shadow Lord to record his second career victory from just six starts to date.
