Gunite took the G1 Hopeful today; Gun Runner’s daughter Echo Zulu won the G1 Spinaway yesterday.
Anyone who has a Gun Runner yearling entered in the September sales must be dancing a jig right now. Not to mention crossing their fingers and praying to the horse gods that their baby stays in one piece between now and the sale ring.
I love Candy Ride; I’ve long thought he deserves as much adulation and respect as Tapit and Into Mischief. His get aren’t flashy as a rule, but they’re durable and get the job done. I’m thrilled he has a son who seems to have picked up the torch.
