Indian Territory to Cherokee Ridge

Indian Territory will stand in 2009 at Bill Langford’s Cherokee Ridge Horse Farm near Carencro, La., for a fee of $1,500.

A 10-year-old son of Carson City, Indian Territory has sired eight winners from a dozen starters. They include stakes-placed Molly Pontz, plus Indianpass, whose four wins this year include a track record at Prairie Meadows.

Indian Territory’s dam, Navajo Pass (by Secretariat), is a half-sister to prominent sire Royal Academy and a full sister to grade II winner Terlingua, dam of major sire Storm Cat. Indian Territory formerly stood at Special K Stables in Iowa.

Cherokee Ridge also will stand new stallion First Money for a fee of $1,000. Seven-year-old First Money (Lil’s Lad--Tricki Mae, by Phone Trick) was graded stakes-placed twice at 2 at Churchill Downs. He won or placed in 11 of 23 races and earned $149,366. He is a half-brother to two stakes winners.
