Hot Springs, AR (SportsNetwork.com) - Champion filly Take Charge Brandi came out of Saturdays head victory in the $100,000 Martha Washington Stakes at Oaklawn Park in fine shape with the Kentucky Oaks still her main objective. The fillys owner Willis Horton speculated following the win that she might run in the Arkansas Derby and Kentucky Derby. Hes having fun with it, I think, trainer D. Wayne Lukas said of Hortons post-race reference to running Take Charge Brandi in the Arkansas Derby and Kentucky Derby. The plan is still the Honeybee (March 7), Fantasy (April 4) and Oaks (May 1). Take Charge Brandi, ridden for the first time by Jon Court, was the 2-5 favorite in the Martha Washington and held off Sarah Sis to win the mile race to begin her 3-year-old campaign. Shes very workmanlike, Lukas said. She knows how to win races. Shes cruising along, very relaxed, and then that horse comes to her and she surges back and wins. At Los Alamitos, two or three of them did that to her, and she surged every time they came. Jon, I think, got a little bit complacent and relaxed there, too. We told him (Court) to just cruise around there, get the money and lets go for the next one. Take Charge Brandi broke her maiden in her debut at Churchill Downs last June. She was second at Saratoga in the Schuylerville and fifth in the Adirondack Stakes. The filly followed with a fifth in the Pocahontas at Churchill and was eighth in Keenelands Alcibiades. She won the Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies at Santa Anita as a 61-1 longshot. The Eclipse Award winner won the Starlet Stakes at Los Alamitos on Dec. 13 to finish her 2014 season. That victory came just three weeks after capturing the Delta Downs Princess Stakes on Nov. 22. The filly has won five of nine starts for $1,680,126.
