Take Charge Indy, winner of the Grade 1 Florida Derby earlier this
year, will be back to race again at 4 with his first goal the Grade 1
Donn Handicap on Feb. 9.
WinStar Farm purchased the breeding rights to Take Charge Indy from
owners Chuck and Maribeth Sanford earlier this year. Take Charge Indy is
by A.P. Indy out of the multiple Grade 1-winning mare Take Charge Lady.
“Everything about Take Charge Indy exudes class, from his race record
and good looks to his pedigree,” said Elliott Walden, WinStar’s
president and CEO. “He joined Bernardini as the only sons of A.P. Indy
in North America to win a Grade 1 as 3-year-olds, and we feel that he
will be tremendously well received when he comes to stud. The prevailing
belief by everyone involved is that Take Charge Indy will be even
better as a 4-year-old, so we’re excited about his potential to come
back and be a top-level racehorse next year.”
