I can't find a topic for him so am creating one. He's my pick in the BCC. Can't go with Arrogate. He didn't do well at Del Mar his last 2 races. I'll be paying close attention to West Coast. Florent can't let him get too much of a lead.

Maybe (???) you'll enjoy some photos of Gunner. His groom let us have an audience with him. He even took 2 of he photos. He (Gunner) is quite the ham.

Nice. Looks like he took a liking to Bills shirt - and was told in no uncertain terms to behave.

I like him in the BCC, as well.

Great pictures, Bal. What fun to spend time with such a fine horse.

We couldn't stop laughing. When Bill waved his finger at him, he had this look "Wassamatter - can't take a joke?" I just love him.

It was fun, and we were very fortunate to have gotten this opportunity. A couple dozen Dunkin Donuts early in the morning has its perks. :lol:

He's a nice consistent horse, always shows up and he's definitely got a good chance in the BCC.

My favorite photo you did not post, Ballerina. You with the coffee pot following Asmussen and Gun Runner from the barn to the Oklahoma track for the work.

BCC - Gun Runner looks to be doing awesome right now.

Oh - you mean this one. That's not a coffee pot - it's a coffee cup. LOL!
