Florida Derby (G1) winner Take Charge Indy plus Keeneland track record-holder Newsdad, top a field of 11 runners entered Wednesday morning for Saturday’s 55th running of the $150,000 Fayette (G2).

The Fayette, contested at 1 1/8 miles on the main track, will go as the ninth race on Saturday’s 10-race program with a 5:21 p.m. (ET) post time. First post time is 1:05 p.m.

Chuck and Maribeth Sandford’s Take Charge Indy, making his first start against older horses, has not run since being injured in the Kentucky Derby (G1) on May 5. Trained by Pat Byrne, the A.P. Indy colt won the Florida Derby in his start before the Kentucky Derby. Calvin Borel has the mount on Take Charge Indy, who will break from post position five.

James Karp’s Newsdad, owner of the Keeneland Polytrack record for 1 ¼ miles (2:00.61), won the Pan American (G2) on turf in March at Gulfstream Park. Trained by Bill Mott, who saddled Go Between to win the Fayette in 2007, Newsdad will break from post position four and be ridden by Julien Leparoux.

The field for the Fayette, from the rail out, is as follows: Guys Reward (Corey Lanerie, 121 pounds), Photo Shoot (Scott Spieth, 121), Nikki’s Sandcastle (Leandro Goncalves, 121), Newsdad (Julien Leparoux, 123), Take Charge Indy (Calvin Borel, 122), Salto (IRE) (Rosie Napravnik, 121), Golden Yank (Shaun Bridgmohan, 121), Middie (Jon Court, 121), Vertiformer (James Graham, 121), Eye of the Leopard (Joe Rocco Jr., 121) and Twinspired (Victor Lebron, 121).
