Florida Derby Winner Take Charge Indy Keeps Byrne Smiling With Work

BOYNTON BEACH, FL – After watching Florida Derby (G1) winner Take Charge Indy work five furlongs easily Thursday morning at Palm Meadows in 1:00 2/5, trainer Pat Byrne lowered his binoculars as the colt was galloping out and said to a handful of onlookers on the clocker’s stand, “There you go. How do you like those apples?”

Palm Meadows clocker Bryan Walls had Take Charge Indy in :11 3/5, :23 3/5, :35 3/5, :47 3/5 and galloping out in 1:14 3/5 under exercise rider Susie Bricker. The colt worked in company with Zimmer, a fourth-place finisher March 11 at Gulfstream in a $66,100 allowance optional claimer.
