Gun Runner: The New Top Dog

Since Arrogate’s failure to return to the same dominating form we experienced earlier this year, one horse has risen to the top in order to fill that void. Gun Runner not only ran his way to the honor, but the polls now show him there too. It all started back in Dubai, when Arrogate swept by him to win.

From: The Racing Addict To: The Industry Part 2

My second interview in my five part series is of a fellow racing addict: Katie Marie. She got into racing at the age of 16 after her first experience with Thoroughbreds came in the form of an honest, and willing OTTB. The thing she remembers most about him was his heart and how hard he tried to do what she asked of him. Katie began more intensive work with OTTBs and Thoroughbreds after a visit to the track with one of her friends when said friend was looking for a long lost horse. Katie was offered a job by a local trainer but ended up going in her free time to groom, walk, tack up, and even had the opportunity to gallop at the trainer’s farm. She’s had experience in every aspect of the industry, and even has her own OTTB named Simon. I gave her the same base question as Victoria, and then the interviewed differed from there.*

Va Bank-The Background Story

Undefeated. A Triple Crown winner. The highest rated racehorse in the country’s racing history.

Va Bank is a Polish sensation; a superstar that has enjoyed a rare combination of accomplishments and the fan bases that grow steadily with them.
