'I'm Just Saying' with Take Charge Indy’s owners
Marengo residents Chuck and Maribeth Sandford have come to count Take Charge Indy as a member of their family. After Take Charge Indy finished 19th at last year’s Kentucky Derby, the 4-year-old colt will run at Churchill Downs in Friday’s Alysheba Stakes as part of the Kentucky Oaks undercard. Take Charge Indy is coming off a second-place finish at the Skip Away Stakes last month in Florida following offseason surgery to repair a foot injury. The Sandfords sold the horse’s breeding rights in the offseason, making this year Take Charge Indy’s final season of racing.
