Indy Weekend made a successful turf debut winning the "a other than" allowance on June 29th at <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />
Trainer Craig Dollase said, "I don't think we saw the best from this colt, and he still was good enough to win. He's got the heart of a lion. When those other horses came after him, he just wouldn't let them go by. We threw a lot at him in this race, and he handled it like a real pro. That tells me that if we can keep him sound we might just have a very special colt. The turf course here was really chewed up.
Tyler Baze said, "You have no idea how good this horse might be. He wasn't handling the course at all. He was slipping and spinning his wheels. The course was pretty dug up, and he was having a hard time finding his footing. For a horse that had never been on the turf before to fight like he did says a lot. He is all class. He has the makings of a very nice horse. I don't think he dislikes the turf really; he just didn't handle this course in the condition it was in.
Indy Weekend earned $30,600 for his effort bringing his career total up to $72,040.
