CLARK HANDICAP QUOTES


WILLIS HORTON, owner of WILL TAKE CHARGE (winner): “There was no question about who won. It’s a lifelong dream. This is what I’ve been waiting on and I finally got it so I’m real tickled.”

Q: Does this win make it a hard decision to race in 2014 or retire? “Naturally it makes it harder. But I made a decision this week that next week was going to be the end of it – I can’t sleep at night with this deal going on. I just want it over with. I either going to sell him or run him next year. I hope I could keep part of him and get to run him next year. That’s my plan.”
