Gun Runner leads Horse of the Year candidates
Winchell Thoroughbreds and Three Chimneys Farm's Gun Runner was named a finalist for the 2017 Horse of the Year as well as Older Dirt Male. The Eclipse Awards ceremony will be held Thursday, Jan. 25 at Gulfstream Park.

Gun Runner was brilliant throughout his 2017 campaign, perhaps no more so than his win in the Nov. 4 Breeders' Cup Classic (G1). Prior to that, jockey Florent Geroux guided the now 5-year-old to wins in the Woodward S. (G1), Whitney S. (G1), Stephen Foster H. (G1) and Razorback H. (G3). Gun Runner's lone blemish last year was a gallant second to Arrogate in the Dubai World Cup (G1). 

Gun Runner will take up stud duties at Three Chimneys this year, but not before he closes out his career with a start in the $16 million Pegasus World Cup (G1) on Jan. 27 at Gulfstream. 

Gun Runner's current record stands at 11-3-2 from 18 starts, with earnings of $8,988,500.
