GSW Runaway Ghost Retired, to Stand in New Mexico


Runaway Ghost | Coady

GSW Runaway Ghost (Ghostzapper–Rose's Desert, by Desert God) has been retired from racing and will stand for the 2021 breeding season at Double LL Farms in Bosque, New Mexico. With lifetime earnings of $783,509, he won a total of six stakes races, from six furlongs to a mile and an eighth, by a combined 27 1/4 lengths. His GIII Sunland Derby win earned him the right to “Run for the Roses” in the 2018 GI Kentucky Derby, but he was forced to scratch prior to the Derby after suffering a training injury while at Sunland Park Racetrack in New Mexico.

Runaway Ghost came back as a 4-year-old and won three stakes races at Sunland Park before shipping to Kentucky for the GII Commonwealth S. at Keeneland, where he suffered an ankle injury after twice clipping heels in the race. A third generation homebred for Joe Peacock of San Antonio, Texas, Runaway Ghost retires sound and will continue to be owned by the Peacock Family as he starts his second career.
