What the Nation is saying about Take Charge Indy...

It’s not often that the very best racehorses can reproduce the kind of success they had on the race track, in the breeding shed. Take Charge Lady is one such special case. A true star of the Bluegrass, she won Keeneland’s Grade 1 Ashland, before becoming the first horse to win back-to-back editions ...Read More

  • PointGivenTCL · Lisa Danielle won Broodmare of the Year last year, and it's a lifetime achievement award. As my favorite runner of all time, I'm so elated to see TCL enjoying this type of success as a broodmare! Way to go, girl! · 155 days ago ·

TCI at the hospital....https://twitter.com/TakeChargeIndy/status/361706870806822914/photo/1
OH NO!!! He was pulled up by Gary Stevens at about the half mile pole. I really hope he is OK. My thoughts are with him.

Is scheduled for surgery tomorrow according to Winstar's twitter feed.
I just saw some scuttlebutt from a message board (take with a grain of salt): Gary said he heard a loud pop at the 1/2 mi pole and pulled him up. The horse was bearing weight on all 4 legs, a split was put on his left front, and he was vanned to the barn for further examination. Most likely: suspensory ligament in his left front leg. If that's the case, they can surgically repair it but Take Charge Indy won't be the same racer he was. TL;DR: he's done.
Elliott Walden of WinStar says Take Charge Indy has condylar fracture left foreleg. Going for surgery.
gary stevens said he was just starting to open up on the field and he was wondering by how much he was going to win by when he heard the pop.Stevens said in his experience it sounded like he fractured a sesamoid.
Poor guy; hope he is OK.
Should win in a romp.
no no no.): NO. i hope hes okay. i saw that bad step & knew he was pulling up.

When did he retire?
  • Show All 6 Comments
  • shores · It was announced at the end of last year that TCI would definitely retire to Winstar at the end of his racing career, which is why he must be available for nicking from Winstar. But as for the date/year of his retirement, I don't think anything's been said, so don't count me on it. · 288 days ago ·

  • Northport · He has been on the stallion register and available for nicking for a few months now, I think it is just a keen Winstar. But don't worry, with Walden at the helm we can guarantee he won't race past 4, that would just be madness! · 287 days ago ·
