Gun Runner Targeting Stephen Foster For Next Start

Grade 1 winner Gun Runner, who finished a good second to Arrogate in the G1 Dubai World Cup March 25, will make his first start since that race in the G1 Stephen Foster Handicap at Churchill Downs June 17.

The BloodHorse reports that the 4-year-old son of Candy Ride has been training steadily over the past few weeks at Churchill Downs.

“(The Stephen Foster) is the plan,” said trainer Steve Asmussen. “Absolutely. We’re here and with how well he’s run here, it’s night racing again and he’s run pretty well under the lights.”

Gun Runner captured the G1 Clark Handicap last fall at Churchill Downs, defeating older horses in the process. In his first start this year, Gun Runner won the G3 Razorback Handicap at Oaklawn Park.
