Take Charge Indy returns home to stand at WinStar Farm in 2020
Saturday, September 7, 2019
WinStar Farm has initiated the process to return Take Charge Indy to the United States for the 2020 breeding season. The 10-year-old regally-bred son of A.P. Indy out of multiple Grade 1 winner, Graded stakes producer, and Broodmare of the Year Take Charge Lady is the No. 1-ranked Third-Crop Sire with more than $4.4 million in progeny earnings.

Currently, Take Charge Indy is No. 31 on the General Sire List, behind only Malibu Moon and well ahead of Flatter, Mineshaft, and Bernardini as leading sons of influential sire of sires A.P. Indy standing in North America.

“Everywhere I go breeders ask me about Take Charge Indy, especially since he’s the leading third-crop sire and No. 31 on the General Sire list,” said Elliott Walden, president, CEO, and racing manager of WinStar. “With a strong demand for proven sires, we are excited to announce that Take Charge Indy will be returning to Kentucky for the 2020 breeding season.”

Take Charge Indy’s top runners in 2019 include Long Range Toddy, winner of the Rebel S. (G2) and an earner of $918,559 to date; Preakness S. (G1) and Holy Bull S. (G2) runner-up Everfast; multiple Graded stakes-placed Motion Emotion, and stakes winner and Graded stakes-placed Pole Setter.

The No. 2-ranked Second-Crop Sire of 2018 with progeny earnings of $4.77 million, Take Charge Indy was No. 1 by stakes winners last year with 10. Numbered among his black type winners a year ago were Noble Indy, winner of the Louisiana Derby (G2); Forward Gal S. (G3) winner Take Charge Paula, four-time stakes winner Split Time, and Long Range Toddy, a two-time stakes winner at two.

Take Charge Indy will participate in the WinStar Incentive Network (WIN), which has already awarded more than $3.6 million to breeders.
