(AP) Will Take Charge waited until the final stride to get a nose past Moreno and pull off a surprise win in the $1 million Travers Stakes on Saturday at Saratoga Race Course.


The thrilling finish gave 77-year-old Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas his third win in racing's Mid-Summer Derby, with the 9-1 Will Take Charge also beating Kentucky Derby winner Orb and Belmont Stakes winner Palace Malice, who finished third and fourth, respectively.


Will Take Charge ran in all three Triple Crown races, but never hit the board. The huge 3-year-old colt ran second to Palace Malice in the Jim Dandy last month, and Lukas said his horse was ready for a big race.


Will Take Charge, with Luis Saez aboard for the first time, ran 1 miles in 2:02.68, and paid $21.20, $8.60 and $5.20.
