Visit Horse Country, in partnership with member Three Chimneys, will host a special one-day-only experience to visit with 2017 GI Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Gun Runner (Candy Ride {Arg}) Thursday, Nov. 1. The champion, retired to stud at Three Chimneys, will greet fans for this, the first tour offered to the public at the farm since 2016. The tour group will be intimate; only 25 tickets are available for $55 each at www.visithorsecountry.com.

Guests will learn the history of Three Chimneys during the visit, receive a special Gun Runner-Three Chimneys hat, have a photo opportunity with Gun Runner, and be eligible for a special mystery prize at the conclusion of the tour. The 90-minute experience also will include Will Take Charge, second in the Breeders’ Cup Classic in 2013.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have this experience available at Three Chimneys, especially during the festivities that surround a Breeders’ Cup being hosted here in Kentucky,” said Anne Sabatino Hardy, executive director of Visit Horse Country. “Gun Runner was a special horse to watch run and now, as we all anticipate seeing his first crop, fans can check in to see how he’s doing. We’re so grateful to Three Chimneys for opening their gates.”
