The Travers was an exciting race. Moreno broke well and got to the top and lead most of the way around, Orb broke well and saved ground on the rail. Moreno held on super tough in the home stretch. D. Wayne Lukas' WILL TAKE CHARGE came flying at the end. Orb had every opportunity to get to Moreno and couldn't pull it off.
WILL TAKE CHARGE nipped Moreno by a nose. I had though based on his race in the Jim Dandy that WILL TAKE CHARGE would be up in the mix but, didn't expect he'd win. He's a big horse (17 Hands) and he is for sure hitting his stride! Congrats to his Trainer D.Wayne Lukas, Horton Willis, Owner and Luis Saez, his new jockey!
I'm a bit sad that Orb didn't pull through but, that's racing. He ran a good race.
PS-Take a look at WILL TAKE CHARGE in the Jim Dandy and you will see why I liked him!
