The Takeover Target story

Article image for The Takeover Target story

Joe Janiak was a taxi driver when he went to the horse auctions with a bit of coin in his pockets. 

He purchased a horse for $1,250, it went on to make over $6million in career prize money – the horse was Takeover Target. 

Takeover Target won eight group one races and was named Australian Champion sprinter in 2006. 

‘All I expected was win one or two races and get my money back out of it and I would have been happy,’ Janiak said. 

‘He had a fantastic pain barrier because when he had pain he kept going and other horses would have pulled up.’
