After placing in several stakes last year, including Saratoga’s Prioress S.-G2, TAKREES started the new year off right with a neck win in the $100,000 Interborough S. The 4-year-old homebred filly by DAAHER was seven lengths off the lead after the first half-mile in this six-furlong sprint. She began her rally on the turn and closed through the stretch to catch the frontrunner before the wire. Besides the Prioress, TAKREES placed in Laurel’s Safely Kept S. and Aqueduct’s Cicada S. She has now won or placed in eight of 11 starts and earned $248,740. Trained by Kiaran McLaughlin, TAKREES 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.
