I'm not right about much but damn that gut feeling was dead on 8-)

Video of the Classic for those who didn't get to see it on TV.

Gate to wire with Collected dogging him all the way until finally he said, "Enough of this crap. I am outta here." He won by 2-1/4 lengths with a 117 beyer. What a horse and what a great jockey - brilliant ride. Kudos to the Asmussen camp for bringing this horse up to his fullest potential going into the Classic. I've never seen Steve that animated. I'm happy for him. Now onto the Pegasus stopping off at the Eclipse Awards to pick up Horse of the Year honors.

It's official! Gun Runner to target 2018 Pegasus before retired



Beat me to it. Although 1/2 of me wanted to see him race another year, the other half didn't want to see him not go out a winner. Every horse, no matter how great, has a boiling point. Arrogate had his early on, but Gun Runner one day would reach his. I want him to go out a champ like Rocky Marciano and Sandy Koufax. He's in tip top condition and the Pegasus is calling for him. Here's to The Gun, the Champ.

Not to mention, he's about worth as much as a stallion as he'll ever be so might as well go for Chrome's North American earnings record before he's done. Not surprised he's bred in the purple. I'll bet they ask 100k for him easy.
