Willis D. Horton's Will Take Charge turned in a 1:03.90 five-furlong breeze on the Oklahoma training track on Tuesday, and Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas said the Grade 2 Jim Dandy runner-up is in good shape as he trains toward the Grade 1, $1 million Travers on August 24.

 

"He started out slow but finished up really strong, so we're pleased with that. I think he's in good shape, and we're headed in the right direction," said Lukas on Wednesday. "We got what we needed to get out of it."

 

Will Take Charge, who won the Grade 2 Rebel in February and competed in all three legs of the Triple Crown, will have one more breeze prior to the Travers, according to Lukas.

 

"We won't do much," said Lukas. "He's dead fit; we've been running him through the Triple Crown, so we won't have to do a lot."
