The journey to recovery from an injury proved to be more challenging than anyone could have imagined for legendary Japanese jockey Yutaka Take.
In a heartwarming scene at one of the biggest racing event in calender, the G1 Arima Kinen, Take declared, “Both Do Deuce and I are back!” The crowd responded with thunderous applause and cheers. “Indeed, horse racing is wonderful. Merry Christmas!” Take raised both hands in response to the resounding “Yutaka Call” echoing from the stands after clinching his forth victory in the prestigious Arima Kinen on Christmas Eve.
The road to this triumph was paved with dedication and rigorous rehabilitation following the debilitating injury.

Despite this setback, Yutaka Take’s resilience and commitment to his craft shine through, leaving fans and fellow competitors inspired by his unwavering spirit. The racing community eagerly anticipates more memorable moments as Take continues to contribute to the sport he loves.
