G1 Winner, By a Horse of the Year, out of a Broodmare of the Year
The only Grade 1-winning millionaire by A.P. Indy to enter stud in 2014, Take Charge Indy offers unparalleled opportunity for performance and pedigree in a young stallion.
A Graded stakes performer every year he raced, Take Charge Indy ranked near the top of his class for 3 straight years:
- At 2: Won debut by 6 1/2 lengths, placed in the Arlington-Washington Futurity (G3), weighted at 113 on the Experimental - two lbs. above Champion I'll Have Another
- At 3: Front-running winner of the $1 million Florida Derby (G1) over future Classic winner Union Rags
- At 4: Won Alysheba S. (G2) on KY Derby weekend with the best Beyer Speed Figure of 2013 at 8 1/2 furlongs - 109
- By Hall of Fame Champion and today's top sire of sires A.P. Indy, whose sons have sired over 500 stakes winners, including winners of the Kentucky Derby (G1) and Kentucky Oaks (G1)
- Out of reigning Broodmare of the Year Take Charge Lady ($2,480,377), dam also of reigning Eclipse Champion Will Take Charge ($3,668,568)
- Covered 145 mares his first season, in 2014
Take Charge Indy has both Northern Dancer and Mr. Prospector on the dam's side, like A.P. Indy's best male line representatives, Malibu Moon and Tapit.
A superb looking individual, no less an observer than Elliott Walden spoke of his look-alike appearance to his sire:
"When I first went to see him, I thought I was looking at A.P. Indy himself."
