Trainer D. Wayne Lukas said he will have a division at Laurel Park this fall in addition to Churchill Downs.

Lukas, the trainer of Travers Stakes winner Will Take Charge, said he will send 15 to 20 horses to Laurel, a division that will then go to Oaklawn Park at the end of the year.

“They run all the way to Dec. 28, and the horses can go to Hot Springs,” Lukas said. “It looks like a good option. We’ll send some nice horses in there.”

Lukas said he most likely would ship Will Take Charge to Churchill before bringing him back east for the $1 million Pennsylvania Derby at Parx on Sept. 21.
