    I hope they are a little conservative with her.
  • Take Charge Brandi is running August 8th in the Longines Test Stakes. She will be ridden by Luis Saez, She is trained by Wayne Lukas and owned by Willis Horton.

    I hope they wait to take on the boys. Really changed RA's subsequent career.
  • You have to remember who her trainer is.

    I am not good always remembering reputations. Remind me about Lucas. K

    Why Lucas.....he wasnt RA's trainer
  • He's raced other fillies against colts. Winning Colors comes to mind. People think he's quick to try that route.

    I think because Lucas is not conservative?

    Yes, remember that Lukas is the trainer who pushed Mr. Z through to the Preakness. He's a also big filly trainer and will run them against males . . . He doesn't baby them. At all. He's not going to sit a race if he thinks Brandi has a chance.
  • Depending on how she performs/comes out of the Test, I'm all for Brandi taking on the boys....but NOT in the Travers. No knock on her at all, but none of the 3yo males have been able to make AP sweat this year, and she'd be wheeling back on 3 weeks rest after what should be a competitive race in the Test (I hope anyway). If AP does go to the Travers, I think Lukas would be wiser to try Brandi out against the boys somewhere else, but he's a go big or go home type

    Well that was where I was going with the comment. Lucas was talking about the Travers, and it looks like AP is aiming for it.

    Take Charge Tressa, 1/2 sib to Take Charge Brandi, is a 2 year old working out at Saratoga. She is War Front X Charming. :) Horton bought her last year at the Saratoga yearling sale. :) Bloodhorse article about the upcoming sale.

    Saw WTC up close at Oaklawn several yrs ago.....he was really impressive looking...could see that blaze coming down the home stretch about a mile off...
  • She was a wreck in the post parade and all lathered up. Ended up finishing last in the Test too. I hope she's okay.
  • I saw that. I hope she's okay too.
  • I'm very concerned. I was so nervous that entire race.
  • KMMKMM Member
    No Brandi in the Travers. I think they were ambitious when putting her in a G1 after a layoff since late winter. I hope she is OK, too.
