Cancer Claims Indian Charlie

Indian Charlie at Airdrie Stud
Airdrie Stud confirmed that its top stallion Indian Charlie had to be euthanized around 9:30 a.m. EST Dec. 15. The 16-year-old son of In Excess had been battling cancer.

Indian Charlie only made five starts, but won four times for trainer Bob Baffert. His victory over the Baffert-trained Real Quiet in the 1998 Santa Anita Derby (gr. I) sent him to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby (gr. I) as the early favorite.

Sent off at 5-2 in the 15-horse field, Indian Charlie finished third to Real Quiet in what would be his last start. Given some time off after the Derby, he was in training to return in the Buick Haskell Invitational Handicap (gr. I) but was retired after pulling a suspensory in a workout at Del Mar.
