TAKING CHARGE is the BOBS 3yo Gelding by CHARGE FORWARD from the Darley bred SINGSPIEL Mare SIRAIKI.

He is a winner over 900m from 8 starts and won a Randwick Barrier trial on a Soft 6 before his first race start at Gosford.

The fact his 5yo half brother CITIZEN'S ARREST was a maiden as a late 4yo and has since won 3 times in NSW with earnings to date of $71,675, suggests this 3yo will be an improver and like his brother may also handle rain affected tracks.

He is now back in full work and only several weeks off hitting the track again.
