Will Take Charge Wins US Gr1 Travers Stakes
At Saratoga in the US, recently euthanized US sire & former Arrowfield shuttler Unbridled's Song (Unbridled-Trolley Song, by Caro) added a Gr1 success when 3YO colt Will Take Charge (Unbridled's Song-Take Charge Lady, by Dehere) scored a surprise nose win for trainer D. Wayne Lukas in the US$1 million Gr1 Travers Stakes (10 furlongs) for 3YOs, over 3YO gelding Moreno (Ghostzapper-Danceinthesunlight, by A.P. Indy) & fellow colt Orb (Malibu Moon-Lady Liberty, by Unbridled). This was Will Take Charge's first Gr1 and took his record to 4 wins (including the Gr2 Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn) & 2 placings (including the last-start Gr2 Jim Dandy Stakes) from 12 starts.
