Yutaka Take (武 豊 Take Yutaka?) (born March 15, 1969, comes from Kyoto, Kyoto) is a Japanese jockey who is a multiple champion in his homeland and won the Japan Cup in 1999 on the horse Special Week. His United Kingdom successes include the July Cup with Agnes World in 2000, the Falmouth Stakes with Proudwings in 2001, and the Shergar Cup in 2007 with the rest of the world team.

Career

He is the son of Kunihiko Take, known as a master, and his younger brother, Koshiro Take is also a jockey. In 1987 he became the first rookie to ride 69 winners in one season. In the following year he became the youngest jockey to achieve 100 wins and won the GI race.

In 2005 he achieved the feat of winning the Japanese Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing (Satsuki Sho, Tokyo Yushun, Kikuka Sho) with Deep Impact, which is the second undefeated horse that has won the classic.

On March 25, 2007, Yutaka Take won the Takamatsunomiya Kinen at Chukyo Racecourse aboard Suzuka Phoenix. The win gave Take a Group One victory for the 20th consecutive racing season.[1] Also in 2007, Take won his fourth Japan Cup Dirt in seven years.
