Gulfstream Park: Take Charge Indy can end drought in Skip Away
HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - Despite his status as last year’s Florida Derby winner, Take Charge Indy does not figure to be favored in Saturday’s Grade 3, $100,000 Skip Away Stakes at 1 3/16 miles, which drew a contentious field of 10.
Take Charge Indy is winless in four races since the Florida Derby, most recently finishing third, eight lengths behind Graydar in the Grade 1 Donn Handicap here on Feb. 9.
Take Charge Indy, who will break from post 8 under Rosie Napravnik, will take on the rapidly improving Cigar Street, who has won two allowance races here this meet.
Cigar Street, trained by Bill Mott, will break from post 9 under John Velazquez.
Adding to the depth of the field are Golden Ticket, who dead-heated for win in last year’s Travers; Pants On Fire, a recent allowance winner over the track; and Al Qasr, a Group 1 stakes winner in Argentina.
1 3/16th is too far for Golden Ticket, he needs 1 mile. He hangs bad everytime they run him 1 1/ 8 or farther. Last yr Travers he was home free til he hung bad and that field was awful.
He won the Fla. Derby over a very biased track favoring inside speed. He needs to learn to relax early in these races, he has a habit of getting dueled into submission. Cigar Street looks like the real deal, I'll be surprised if he loses.
What's wrong with this guy? The horse has not won but he's ran in 4 graded stakes. He got hurt in the Kentucky derby and then ran 3rd then second in a grade one and third in a grade one.
