Willis D. Horton's Take Charge Brandi's (Giant's Causeway) lackadaisical run in the stretch of Saturday's $100,000 Martha Washington S. nearly cost her the race as Sarah Sis (Sharp Humor) offered a game late bid along the inside.

Once challenged, the D. Wayne Lukas pupil fought back on the outside and just eked out the head score after leading throughout the one-mile contest. She stopped the clock in 1:39 3/5 while piloted by Jon Court.

The win gave the Take Charge Brandi another 10 points, bringing her tally to 40 points toward a starting berth to the Kentucky Oaks (G1) on May 1 at Churchill Downs.
