Taking Care of the Stayers Final

 Gotta Take Care’s win in the $100,000 Melbourne Signage Concepts Stayers Final at Moonee Valley on Friday night eased some of the pain his connections endured in August. At the same course, over the gruelling 3000m, he looked a certain winner when Steven King seemed to drop his hands, only to be grabbed right on the line by Wells. There were no such problems on Friday night with Brad Rawiller driving him to the line. Rawiller has a great association with the eight-year-son of Rubiton, winning six races on the gelding. Getting in the ‘Black Caviar’ theme, his owners Ian, Graeme, Phillip Wood and their wives donned themselves in their racing colours with ties, caps and scarves. The brothers have enjoyed a great deal of success with the Gotta’s - Gotta Keep Cool and Gotta Take Care. They have won 24 races between them (12 each) and just shy of $1 million. Gotta Take Care, the current JJ Houlahan ‘Champion Hurdler’ will now convert back to the jumps when he runs in the $100,000 Yalumba Classic Hurdle over 3600m at Oakbank on Easter Monday – a win would take his prizemoney over the $500,000.
