Kentucky Derby Horses 2012: Take Charge Indy Has A Chicago Connection

The 2012 Kentucky Derby is set for Saturday, May 5, and Chuck and Maribeth Sandford of Marengo, Ilinois (a suburb of Chicago) are hoping their horse -- Take Charge Indy -- is primed for a big day. The Sanfords, owners of Bag Makers Inc., are no doubt excited to have Take Charge Indy in contention for the title at the Run of the Roses. Take Charge Indy won the Grade 1 Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park on March 31st and finished fifth in the 2011 Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Churchill Downs. Meanwhile, his jockey (Calvin Borel) won his first career Kentucky Derby in 2007 by guiding Street Sense into the winner's circle. Could there be magic in the cards this time around? Only time will tell.
