Derby 139 Profile: Will Take Charge

Print

Family and Connections: Sire - Unbridled’s Song; Dam - Take Charge Lady; trained by D. Wayne Lukas; rider Jon Court; owner Willis Horton.

Pros: Comes into Kentucky Derby off a win in the Grade 2 Rebel Stakes over stablemate Oxbow and Den’s Legacy.

Cons: He was sixth, beaten 18 lengths in the Grade 3 Southwest Stakes on a sloppy Oaklawn Park track.

Fun Fact: Will Take Charge’s dam, Take Charge Lady, produced Take Charge Indy who finished 19th in last year's Kentucky Derby, but won at Churchill Downs yesterday in the Alysheba.

Analysis: Will Take Charge's poor finish in the Southwest in the slop, doesn't bode well for him over a sloppy track at Churchill Downs.
