Keeneland: Take Charge Indy ready for return in Fayette
By Marty McGee
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Pat Byrne feels like he might be sitting on a pat hand with Take Charge Indy for the Grade 2 Fayette Stakes on Saturday.
“We’re good to go,” Byrne said.
Take Charge Indy, winner of the Florida Derby in the spring, will be making his first start since he finished 19th of 20 in the May 5 Kentucky Derby. The 3-year-old colt has had five recorded workouts since returning from minor ankle surgery, the latest coming Oct. 17 at Churchill Downs. Byrne said he “thought about maybe blowing him out a little this week” before deciding against it.
“He’s ready, he’s fit,” he said. “He gallops two miles every day. We’re looking forward to getting him started back.”
Keeneland racing officials are looking for eight others for the $150,000 Fayette, which goes at 1 1/8 miles on Polytrack. They are Eye of the Leopard, Golden Yank, Guys Reward, Middie, Newsdad, Nikki’s Sandcastle, Salto, and San Antone. Entries will be drawn Wednesday.
Calvin Borel will have the mount back on Take Charge Indy, who will be trying to become the 11th 3-year-old to win the Fayette and the first since Blame in 2009.
I wish good luck to Take Charge Indy and his connections on his comeback. He is a talented horse, and it would be nice to see Take Charge Indy succeed again after healing from his injury in the Kentucky Derby.
Since the 3-Y.O. crop has been decimated by injury, I wouldn't be surprised if TCI winds up being one of the better champion horses from this class.
Salto - TCI box please. throw middie in for tri.
horse has no shot..wont hit board
If Pat says he's ready, believe it.
