I meant.... my husband and I were talking about that shoe in his tail - so funny - but it must have been bouncing off his back legs as he was running....

From what I could see, it didn't look like a metal shoe. Seemed to have a lip on the front...maybe a glue-on?

That's what that was! I was trying to figure out how a horse with such a gnarly knot in his tail could be "best turned out". . .

I think Breaking Lucky got the "Best Turned Out" award. ;)
When I first caught a glimpse of Gun Runner's tail after he won, I thought he had had his tail partially braided and that was a loose ribbon flapping around.
Nope...a horse shoe, and it was banging against his hocks. :shock: Got to give credit to a horse who wins so impressively with that sort of distraction.

David Grening‏ @DRFGrening
Gun Runner ran the last half-mile of the Whitney with Cautious Giant's show in his tail. Watch the head-on replay you'll see the shoe pop up

Claire Novak‏ @BH_CNovak
Owner @LooochRacing confirms the shoe Gun Runner carried home in his tail belonged to his Cautious Giant, who returned to the barn sans one.

The moment Gun Runner added that extra bit of equipment on the backstretch of the Whitney.

gun runner is a plucky little guy - yeah that shoe must have been hitting him while he ran - but he kept to his task - gotta hand it to this fella.... he is small - but he is mighty - his second win since Dubai, right? and arro put in that lousy non-performance in his first back - I am very impressed with gun runner - hope he continues to blow the doors off of his competition - with or without horse shoes stuck in his tail!
