Will Take Charge will continue to race this year under an agreement between current owner Willis Horton and Three Chimneys Farm, which has bought a 50% interest in the colt. A multiple grade I-winning 3-year-old, who narrowly missed winning the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic to Mucho Macho Man Will Take Charge, showed his mettle earlier last year by capturing the Travers Stakes and defeating older males in the Clark Handicap, as well as winning the Rebel Stakes, Pennsylvania Derby, and Smarty Jones Stakes for a total of $3 million in purse money for the season under the guidance of trainer D. Wayne Lukas.

"Will Take Charge is the kind of horse we all dream of having in the stallion barn, because he's the complete package in every way," said Case Clay, president of Three Chimneys. "Being a part of a horse of this magnitude is a step in an exciting new direction for Three Chimneys, and we're thrilled to be able to race him with Mr. Horton in 2014."

"I can't think of a better result," added Horton. "This deal allows me to enjoy racing Will Take Charge another year, and secures a wonderful home for him when he's retired. Will Take Charge is the horse of a lifetime, and 2014 will hopefully be exciting for me, for Three Chimneys, and for the fans."

Will Take Charge by Unbridled Song out Trolley Song is this year's favorite to win the Eclipse Award as 3-year-old male champion and also a candidate for Horse of the Year.
