    Gun Runner Goes Out a Winner in Pegasus World Cup

    In the $16.3 million Pegasus World Cup (G1) Jan. 27 at Gulfstream Park, the 5-year-old son of Candy Ride owned by Winchell Thoroughbreds and Three Chimneys Farm put an exclamation point on the end of a magnificent career with a determined win.

    Value in Going Against Pegasus Favorite Gun Runner

    Gun Runner is quite obviously the one to beat as he makes his final start in the second running of the world's richest horse race: the Jan. 27 Pegasus World Cup Invitational Stakes (G1), which offers an estimated purse of $16.3 million.

  • Selection Saturday: Bombs Away

    Once again, this is about longshots and value. I don’t have enough money to bet favorites and pick 6’s and superfectas, so I’ve got to take a few stabs.

  • An Unexpected Loaded Gun for the Classic?

    But let's start by being more logical. The Classic is simple: Arrogate or Gun Runner? That is where everyone will be focusing their attention. In the two previous showdowns between these two antagonists, Arrogate proved to be the fastest gun alive.

  • Why Gunnevera Should Run Well at Del Mar

    In the case of Gunnevera, he has one main weapon, and that is a wicked turn of foot and an explosive move on the far turn. As powerful a weapon as that can be, it is not meant to be sustained over a distance of ground.
