Take Charge Indy
Chuck and Maribeth Sandford's Take Charge Indy , winner of the $1 million Florida Derby (gr. I) in March, breezed three furlongs in :36 4/5 at Palm Meadows Dec. 21 in his first workout since finishing a game second in the Clark Handicap (gr. I) at Churchill Downs Nov. 23.
"He's right on schedule," said trainer Patrick Byrne, who plans for the A.P. Indy colt to make his first start of 2013 in the $500,000 Donn Handicap (gr. I), a 1 1/8-mile test at Gulfstream Park Feb. 9. "He went real well and we'll come back and work again in eight or nine days."
Produced from the multiple grade I-winning Dehere mare Take Charge Lady, Take Charge Indy has won two of nine starts, with four placings, and earned $821,824.
