Take Charge Indy Drills Donn Bullet

WinStar Farm and Chuck and Maribeth Sandford’s 4-year-old Take Charge Indy was timed a ‘bullet’ half-mile in 47 flat Saturday morning at Palm Meadows as the 2012 Florida Derby (G1) winner got his final drill ahead of his 2013 season debut in the $500,000 Donn Handicap (G1) next Saturday at Gulfstream Park.

“He was sharp. I wanted to put a little speed in him and stretch his legs,” said trainer Pat Byrne. “He actually went three-eighths in 34 2/5 and galloped out in 47. We’re all set and looking forward to next Saturday.”

As for the possible pace scenarios, particularly with front-running California invader Ultimate Eagle in the race, Byrne said, “He’s (Take Charge Indy) push-button. If somebody else wants the lead they can have it. We’ll just sit off it.”

A regally-bred son of A.P. Indy out of Grade 1 winner Take Charge Lady, Take Charge Indy makes his first start since a game second-place finish in the Clark Handicap (G1) at Churchill Downs on Nov. 23 when beaten a length by Shackleford.

I think I might pick him to win. Haven't checked the entries yet, but I thin he could take it.
