Grade II winner Pappacap (Gun Runner), has been retired and will stand the 2024 breeding season at Gary Broad's Walmac Farm in Lexington, KY, the farm announced on Tuesday. His fee will be $12,500, stands and nurses.
In three seasons for Hall of Famer Mark Casse, Pappacap amassed a career line of 12-2-4-2 for earnings of $842,430. In addition to capturing the 2021 GII Best Pal S. at Del Mar, he was second in the GI TVG Breeders' Cup Juvenile and GI American Pharoah S. behind champion Corniche (Quality Road). He also placed in three other graded stakes, including last year's GI Woody Stephens S.
The George and Karen Russell homebred is out of the Grade III-placed Scat Daddy Mare Pappascat and is a half-brother to Grade III winner Boppy O (Bolt d'Oro) and hails from the family of Group 1 winner and Peruvian Horse of the Year Al Qasr (Aptitude).
