Take Charge Brandi back at Oaklawn Park after surgery
By: SPORTS NETWORK
Hot Springs, AR (SportsNetwork.com) - Champion filly Take Charge Brandi is back at Oaklawn Park after undergoing surgery last Thursday at Rood & Riddle Clinic in Lexington to repair a non-displaced bone chip in her right knee.
Take Charge Brandi, owned by Willis Horton and trained by D. Wayne Lukas, will have 60 days of rehabilitation and Lukas believes she will be ready for the Saratoga meet that opens July 24.
"We'll walk her twice a day in that second 30-day session, and she won't lose much conditioning," Lukas said. "She'll be ready for the opening of Saratoga, for sure."
In her seasonal debut, Take Charge Brandi won the Martha Washington Stakes at Oaklawn. The filly, winner of last year's Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, has won five of nine starts for $1,680,126.
