Take Charge Indy takes 2nd in Skip Away Stakes

Take Charge Indy, the 4-year-old colt owned by Marengo’s Chuck and Maribeth Sandford, finished second at Saturday’s Skip Away Stakes At Gulfstream Park in Hallandale, Fla.

Take Charge Indy led for much of the 1 3/16-mile event before Cigar Street, owned by Miami Heat player Rashard Lewis, made a late charge going into the final turn. The two horses battled down the final stretch before Cigar Street surged ahead to edge out Take Charge Indy.

Take Charge Indy, jockeyed by Rosie Napravnik, finished ahead of Pants on Fire. Cigar Street won the $100,000 event in 1:56.84.

Saturday’s second-place came six weeks after Take Charge Indy finished third in his 4-year-old debut in the Donn Handicap. Chuck Sandford said Friday that Take Charge Indy will retire from racing Dec. 1. He sold the horse’s breeding rights to Kentucky-based WinStar farms last year after Take Charge Indy won the Florida Derby and finished 19th at the Kentucky Derby.
