3YO TAKREES Pulls Away in MSW at Aqueduct

Coming off a runner-up finish in a Laurel Maiden Special Weight in only her second start last December, TAKREES pulled away to win this six-furlong Aqueduct Maiden Special Weight by 3 3/4 lengths. The 3-year-old filly by DAAHER moved up from third on the turn to challenge for the lead turning for home, dueled with the frontrunners until the sixteenth pole and sprinted clear for the final margin of victory. This homebred filly trained by Kiaran McLaughlin is out of the Dynaformer mare, Uroobah, who is a half-sister to multiple G3 SW/G1-placed Mustanfar. Third dam is Champion Height of Fashion (FR), dam of Champions Nashwan and Nayef.
