Gun Runner Drills a Half-Mile at Meydan for Dubai World Cup


Winchell Thoroughbreds’ and Three Chimneys Farm’s Gun Runner got a feel for the Meydan dirt course on Monday morning at approximately 7:00 a.m. local time in Dubai. The son of Candy Ride (Arg) worked a half-mile in 49.80 for the Dubai World Cup with Steve Asmussen’s top assistant Scott Blasi watching on horseback.

 

The winner of the 2016 Grade II $1,000,000 Louisiana Derby enters the world’s second-richest race in the best form of his career, having demolished the Grade III $500,000 Razorback Handicap last out at Oaklawn Park and winning his first Grade I a race prior in the $500,000 Clark Handicap at Churchill Downs. The compact and consistent chestnut seeks his first victory at America’s classic distance of 1¼ miles, a trip over which he has twice finished third, including in the Grade I $2,000,000 Kentucky Derby last May and Grade I $1,500,000 Travers Stakes the following August.
