Will Take Charge Shuttling To Uruguay For Southern Hemisphere Season

Champion Will Take Charge will shuttle to Haras Phillipson in Uruguay for the 2020 Southern Hemisphere breeding season, the South American publication Turf Diario reports.

Will Take Charge, a 10-year-old son of Unbridled’s Song, stands the Northern Hemisphere season at Three Chimneys in Midway, Ky., where he was most recently advertised for a fee of $15,000.

He is the sire of three crops of racing age, highlighted by Grade 1-placed Manny Wah, Grade 2-placed High Regard and Sweet Diane, and stakes winners Kim K, Great Sister Diane, and Cashcheckorcharge.

Will Take Charge is out of 2013 Broodmare of the Year Take Charge Lady, a multiple Grade 1-winning Dehere mare whose other runners of note include Grade 1 winner Take Charge Indy and winner Charming, who is herself the dal of champion Take Charge Brandi and Grade 1 winner Omaha Beach.

On his own accord, Will Take Charge won seven of 21 starts for earnings of $3,924,648. He earned the Eclipse Award for champion 3-year-old male in 2013 off a campaign that included scores in the Grade 1 Travers Stakes and Clark Handicap, the G2 Pennsylvania Derby and Rebel Stakes, and the non-graded Smarty Jones Stakes. He also finished second in that year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic.

Will Take Charge came back at four to win the G2 Oaklawn Handicap, and finish in the money in the G1 Santa Anita Handicap, Stephen Foster Handicap, Donn Handicap, and Whitney Stakes.
