THE horse of the moment right now is the Robert Pearson-conditioned chestnut Will In Charge. The Adore The Gold – Gem Lea offspring has been dominating the top class this season with four wins from five starts.

Will In Charge's victories have come in the Legal Light Trophy over nine furlongs and 25 yards (1,820m) on April 21; the Chairman's Trophy over seven-and-a-half furlongs (1,500m) on June 9; the Prime Minister's Stakes over 10 furlongs (2,000m) on August 25; and the Gold Cup over seven furlongs (1,400m) on October 13.

The only race which Will In Charge has lost this year was The Viceroy Trophy over nine furlongs (1,800m) on June 30 when he finished in fourth place behind Houdini's Magic.

Will In Charge's effort in the Gold Cup placed him at the helm, the best horse in training at Caymanas Park.

“It was a super performance by Will In Charge to win the Gold Cup and he came out of the race good as well. He has been training well, and so we are looking forward to the Superstakes come Saturday (tomorrow),” Pearson said.

In the Superstakes, it will be a different scenario with the return to form Bigdaddykool and She's A Maneater looking for revenge after going down three times to Will In Charge this season.

“They ( She's A Maneater and Bigdaddykool) are good competition, but I think I have the horse right now and with him training well, I expect him to win again. I am very confident going into the Superstakes,” Pearson disclosed.
