Indian Firewater to Stand in New Mexico

Grade II winner for Bob Baffert to be located near Hobbs at Doubletree Farm.

Indian Firewater, a grade II stakes-winning son of Indian Charlie, will stand his first season in 2013 at Doubletree Farm near Hobbs, New Mexico. His introductory fee is $3,000.

The 5-year-old runner, a $400,000 yearling purchase by Bob Baffert, was campaigned by Karl Watson, Mike Pegram, and Paul Weitman. He earned $339,242 during his career while winning three of 25 starts with nine seconds and five thirds.

His victories included the 2011 San Fernando Stakes (gr. II) at Santa Anita Park and the Nashville Stakes at Betfair Hollywood Park in 2010.

"Indian Firewater showed brilliant speed and could carry it two turns," Baffert said.

John and Laura Mulholland bred the dark bay in Kentucky. Sired by deceased Santa Anita Derby (gr. I) winner Indian Charlie, with progeny earnings of over $48 million, he is out of Touched, by Touch GoldIn Excess.
