Take Charge Indy is a proven sire of GSWs. Take Charge Indy is half-brother to a Champion by Unbridled’s Song, and he has two SWs, including G2-winning millionaire Long Range Toddy out of mares by that horse, and GSW Take Charge Paula out of a mare by that horse’s son, Songandaprayer. That would encourage trying mares by other sons of Unbridled’s Song, such as Midshipman, Rockport Harbor, and First Defence. Mares descending from Unbridled through Empire Maker, via Pioneerof the Nile, Bodemeister, Cairo Prince, and American Pharoah (sire of G1W As Time Goes By, out of Take Charge Lady). The Quiet American branch of Fappiano should do well here also, including through Midnight Lute. From other branches of Mr. Prospector, Take Charge Indy has SWs from mares by Not For Love, Smoke Glacken, Lemon Drop Kid, Smart Strike (sire of Curlin and Lookin At Lucky) and Distorted Humor. Other Mr. Prospector line sires that might work here include City Zip, Street Cry and branches of Seeking the Gold. Take Charge Indy has two SWs out of mares by sons of Storm Cat, including GSW Noble Indy (out of a mare by Storm Boot). He also has a SW out of a mare by Storm Cat grandson, Harlan’s Holiday (sire of Into Mischief). From another branch of Northern Dancer, there is a SW out of a mare by Medaglia d’Oro (by El Prado), and two SWs out of mares from his own Deputy Minister broodmare sire line Take Charge Indy has SWs out of mares by Defrere (a brother to Take Charge Indy’s broodmare sire, Dehere) and Badge of Silver (by Silver Deputy).  – Alan Porter
