Farewell evening to be held in honour of Takeover Target

THE popularity of legendary sprinter Takeover Target was so great that a farewell evening is being held in his honour.

Trainer Joe Janiak and his stable star moved to Coffs Harbour while the gelding was still in his prime and as both are considered locals, the Coffs Harbour Racing Club is hosting the farewell evening on Friday, July 17.

Showcasing memorabilia and several of his greatest races on screen, this event in The Jim Browning Lounge is open to all.

Cost is $10 for non members and free for members with RSVP's to the club due by the Wednesday before the event.
