Will Take Charge has workout for Clark Handicap


Louisville, KY ( - Leading 3-year-old Will Take Charge had his final workout Friday morning at Churchill Downs for the $500,000 Clark Handicap on Friday, Nov. 29.

Trained by D. Wayne Lukas, Will Take Charge went five furlongs over a track listed as 'good' in 1:01. The work was moved up to Friday because of concerns about a soggy weather forecast for Louisville over the weekend.

"He's really having a good week. It's not one of those works that we're looking for anything more than just to open his lungs a little bit," Lukas said Thursday prior to the workout.

Owned by Willis Horton, the colt is coming off a nose loss to Mucho Macho Man in the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 2.

Will Take Charge won the Pennsylvania Derby and Travers heading into the Breeders' Cup and was second in the Jim Dandy Stakes at Saratoga.

This year the 3-year-old colt has won four of 10 starts for better than $2.6 million and has banked $2,727,371 in his 14 race career.

The roster of known probable starters for the 1 1/8-mile Clark includes Bourbon Courage, Easter Gift, Finnegans Wake, Game On Dude, Golden Ticket, Prayer for Relief and Will Take Charge with Jaguar Paw listed as possible.
