Second Winner for Gun Runner


Pappacap | Ryan Thompson

2nd-Gulfstream, $60,000, Msw, 5-14, 2yo, 5f, :58.40, ft, 2 3/4 lengths.
PAPPACAP (c, 2, Gun Runner–Pappascat {GSP, $165,762}, by Scat Daddy) was off as the even-money favorite to become the second winner for his freshman sire (by Candy Ride {Arg}) at first asking. He broke on top in this eight-horse affair and was pushed along through an opening quarter in :22.71. The bay began to shake clear off the turn, had a three-length advantage in the stretch and had the final margin cut to 2 3/4 lengths by Merlin (Brethren). The winner's dam had a colt by Bolt d'Oro in 2020 and was bred back to Omaha Beach. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $38,000. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by TVG.
