'Woody' Jumps Clear in JJ Houlahan

Gotta Take Care, affectionally known around the Darren Weir stable as ‘Woody’ has taken the lead in the JJ Houlahan Jumping Championship after his brilliant win in the $100,000 Kevin Lafferty Hurdle at Warrnambool on Saturday. With just 4 legs remaining, he has accumulated 44 points, 8 points clear of Megapixel. He will be given a chance to extend this lead when he backs up in the $200,000 Grand National Hurdle over 3900m at Sandown on Sunday. His win provided Darren Weir, who leads the trainers section of the JJ Houlahan, with a jumping double. In the previous race, four-year-old gelding Dashdan, proved too strong for his rivals in the Maiden Hurdle. The win rewarded the patience of his owner/ breeders Oskar Mustafa and Liz Fair, as he was unable to win on the flat before switching to the jumps.
