This Sunday, March 8th is Gun Runner's 7th birthday! Here is a little backstory on young Gun Runner from Three Chimneys Farm.
Gun Runner was born at neighboring WinStar Farm in Versailles, Kentucky on March 8, 2013. As a weanling, Gun Runner along with his dam and grand dam were purchased privately by Three Chimneys Farm from Besilu Stables. He was then moved to Three Chimneys Farm where he was raised from the time he was a weanling.
Gun Runner skipped the yearling sales and instead was pointed to a 2YO sale. It was at a 2-year-old sale Winchell Thoroughbreds approached Three Chimneys to partner together on the colt. And as they say, the rest is history!
Below are a few photos. From the top, Gun Runner as a colt then pictured as a yearling. Isn't he handsome?
