Take Charge Indy

Post Position: 3; Odds: 15-1

One of the most impeccably bred horses in the starting gate, Take Charge Indy should receive backing at the windows by virtue of having three-time Derby-winning jock and Churchill favorite Calvin Borel in the irons. In taking the Florida Derby five weeks ago, the man nicknamed "Bo-rail" guided Take Charge Indy to the rail, where they were able to set slow fractions on a track favoring speed. They won't get that same favorable setup on Saturday, with Trinniberg, Hansen and Bodemeister in this race.
