Will Take Charge retires with seven wins and six seconds in 21 career starts.
Louisville, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Champion colt Will Take Charge has been retired to stud at Three Chimneys Farm in Kentucky. The 4-year-old suffered a "mild strain to a branch of his suspensory apparatus."

Trained by Hall of Famer D. Wayne Lukas, Will Take Charge raced for Willis Horton and won last year's Eclipse Award as champion 3-year-old colt.

"Will Take Charge's retirement is particularly disappointing as we were primed, as an older horse, to win the (Breeders' Cup) Classic this year which we lost by a whisker last year," Lukas said in a news release issued by Three Chimneys. "If the race were a mile-and-a-quarter and two inches, Will Take Charge's career earnings would be at nearly $6 million. This horse has done what few other horses can do any more. He is a different kind of Unbridled's Song. He defeated the best three-year-olds in the country in the Travers and then the best older horses in the Classic. He is a true Champion who ran to his blue-blooded pedigree. He proved himself to be the best of his generation. He is a proud addition to my resume."  Full Story
