Spun to Run (Hard Spun–Yawkey Way, by Grand Slam), winner of last year's GI Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile, will enter stud at Gainesway next season, the farm announced Sunday. The 4-year-old was also third in last year's GI TVG.com Haskell Invitational S. and he captured the GIII Smarty Jones S. He ended his career with a runner-up effort behind champion 3-year-old Maximum Security (New Year's Day) in the GI Cigar Mile H. On the board in 10 of 12 starts, Spun to Run won five times and earned $1,160,520.
“Great milers make great stallions,” said Gainesway's Director of Stallion Sales and Recruitment Sean Tugel. “His speed figures at a mile were fantastic. To be able to run a 0 five times on the Thorographs as a 3-year-old takes a special talent. The Breeders' Cup is the biggest stage and Spun to Run ran a very talented group of colts off their feet.”
Gainesway CEO Antony Beck added, “He possesses brilliant speed and he excelled as a miler. The Danzig sireline has provided top stallions worldwide and I am excited for Spun to Run's future at Gainesway.”
Spun to Run will stand for $12,500 LFSN.
