A short time later, hip No. 345, consigned by Taylor Made Sales Agency, went to Colts Neck Stable, LLC for $400,000. The colt is the second foal out of Grade 1-placed Indulgence.

Will Take Charge leads all 2017 First-Crop sires by yearling sales average, with 16 lots sold at an average of $260,000.

Will Take Charge has a total of 65 lots cataloged in the Keeneland sale, which runs through Sept. 23.
