Indian Territory's dam Navajo Pass is a full-sister to both Storm Cat's Gr2-winning dam Terlingua & Pancho Villa, plus a half-sister to 1990 Gr1 Breeders' Cup Mile winner & permanently Australian-based Coolmore sire Royal Academy. Indian Territory (who won 6 races) has sired 2 crops of racing age & his 8 winners (from 12 starters to date) include stakes-placed Molly Pontz & 4-time winner Indianpass (whose victories this year include a track record at Prairie Meadows).
