Gun Runner Sarah Andrew

The first mares bred to Fortune Ticket (Candy Ride {Arg}-Quiet Giant, by Giant's Causeway) and Son of Thunder (Uncle Mo-Chattertown, by Speightstown) have been confirmed in foal via press release from Climax Stallions. Fortune Ticket, the full-brother to Horse of the Year and #1 two-year-old sire Gun Runner, is standing his first season at Anchor and Hope Farm in Maryland. On the board in four of six lifetime starts with two wins, he sold for $27,000 two years ago at KEENOV. Son of Thunder, the full-brother to the late Laoban, is standing his first season at Waldorf Farm in New York. The bay was a $475,000 Denali Stud consignment, and he went the way of Lael Stable at the 2019 Saratoga Select yearling sale. He retired with a second-place effort from only three lifetime starts. Fortune Ticket and Son of Thunder are both standing the 2022 breeding season for an advertised fee of $2,500, stands and nurses. “We are thrilled to be able to bring such elite bloodlines to the regional markets,” said Sean Feld, President of Climax Stallions, whose group is supporting both freshman with multiple mares. “Both stallions have stellar physicals to match, which has us anxiously awaiting the foals to come.”
