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.

  • brogan.kornaus · Authenticity suffered a condylar fracture back in 2011...She had 17 months off from racing · 487 days ago
  • amfuller · Surgery tomorrow for TCI, he has a left front condylar fracture. · 487 days ago
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.
on July 19, Take Charge Indy worked 5F at Churchill Downs on Fast Dirt in 1:02.80 b finishing 14/18.

When did he retire?

  • 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. · 506 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! · 506 days ago
on June 8, Take Charge Indy worked 4F at Churchill Downs on Fast Dirt in :47.00 b finishing 1/56.

  • rafirox · Having a wonderul day betting, thus far... I had Take Charge Indy, and I'm glad he got it done... If you have read my posts, you would know I've been high on Cigar Street (and have bet him on numerous occasions) since seeing and hitting him live in December... This makes Cigar Street look even better, and great win for Take Charge Indy (and I had him!)... I've also bet some of his other previous starts, so I'm glad he finally got me the WIN money. · 573 days ago
