Gun Runner's Radio Days Romps to Rising Stardom


Radio DaysChelsea Durand

Radio Days (Gun Runner) took her record to two-for-two with 'TDN Rising Star' performance at Aqueduct Thursday. A debut winner in the slop at Belmont Oct. 31, she was heavily favored at 1-5 to repeat here. Settling well back off the pace in fourth, the $750,000 KEESEP buy swept up three wide to take on the top three on the backstretch run. Left with just one foe at the top of the lane, Radio Days quickly shrugged her off and rolled clear with ease to win for fun by 8 1/2 lengths. Frosty Brew (Frosted) was best of the rest in second. The winner is a half to Bowies Hero (Artie Schiller), MGISW, $1,592,720. Remembered had a Union Rags filly last year and was not bred back. She is now in foal to Nyquist.


4th-Aqueduct, $82,000, Alw (NW1$X)/Opt. Clm ($80,000), 12-2, 2yo, f, 7f, 1:25.83, ft, 8 1/2 lengths.
