With regular jockey Florent Geroux aboard, the 4-year-old son of Candy Ride worked in company with Gettysburg and completed the move in a final time of 1:00 2/5, the second fastest of 41 at the distance Monday. Gettysburg was credited with 1:01. Gun Runner galloped out to six furlongs in 1:12 4/5.

Gun Runner Pointing to Pegasus After Breeders' Cup
Owners Winchell Thoroughbreds and Three Chimneys Farm announced Oct. 18 that Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) contender Gun Runner will point to the $16 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) Jan. 27 at Gulfstream Park after his trip to Del Mar.

In the announcement, the ownership group also said plans for Gun Runner's stud career "will be determined following the Breeders' Cup."

Other than a second-place finish behind Arrogate in the March 25 Dubai World Cup Sponsored By Emirates Airline (G1), Gun Runner's 2017 campaign has been unblemished.

He wanted to go. I don't see where that track surface is deep.

Gun Runner earned 27 of 31 first-place votes this week, with four going to Arrogate. It’s fair to say most ballots were cast before both worked out at Santa Anita, earning high marks Monday morning.

"Gun Runner has never won at the distance over which he’ll be tested in the Nov. 4 Breeders’ Cup Classic, but trainer Steve Asmussen has no concerns his stable star can get every bit of 1 1/4 miles."

Love this boy. Just watch his run in the Woodward and tell me he can't get 10 furlongs and win. He wasn't even breathing hard coming out of that race. He just gets better and betterer - plus he's adorable.

He came pretty darn close in the Dubai World Cup too, Arrogate was just still in monster form at that point, it really wasn't because Gun Runner couldn't get the distance, imho.
