Will Take Control ran a good third in his race at Gulfstream Park on Friday stalking the 25-1 pace setter only to see the draw away winner close from the clouds and pull away by 9. Breaking from post 4 Will Take Control bumped with Weight of Glory at the start, raced close up inside to the turn, lodged a brief bid in the two-path approaching the stretch, and ran on to narrowly miss second.

We spoke with trainer Steve Klesaris after the race and Steve said, “He showed good improvement today. His Beyer Speed Figure shows he’s going in the right direction. The rider is begging me to run him on the turf. He feels he’s not grabbing the ground the way he should and that he’s a better horse than this. We have to try it.”

We also spoke with Hibiscus Stables CEO Mike Oliveto after the race. Mike said, “He’s improved with each subsequent start. The rider wants to try the grass so we’ll probably do that next time. Overall he ran a good race and just lost second by a nose. Nobody was beating the winner today so the result is a bit better than it looks on paper.”

Will Take Control earned $2,700 for Friday’s third place finish.

We’ll see how Will Take Control comes out of the race and Steve will point him accordingly.
