Book Number: 57480
Random House Australia, 2010 8vo softcover 319pp Very good+, small crease on bottom corner. Inscribed & signed by author. Signed by Joe Janiak. Back in 2003 when Joe Janiak attended a dispersal sale in Sydney he almost went home without opening his wallet. But whether through serendipity or plain good horsemanship, he was attracted to a bay gelding with a catchy name and a lot of attitude. Takeover Target cost the hobby trainer $1375 and, in the beginning, a lot of headaches. The four-year-old unraced thoroughbred had bad knees and a worse temper but all Joe could see was potential. He was sure Target could win a few country races. Scarce signed copy.
