Gun Runner's latest work with Gettysburg- video imbedded.

I cant wait for the Pegasus and then for May when I get to see him once again - only this time he'll be at Three Chimneys.

From Thoroughbred Insider (beautifully written and so deserving)


Bittersweet, are the final pages of a story, when the sun begins to set on a job well done. It is these times in which we savor every touch, every feeling, every heartbeat— because these moments, no matter how small, are felt deeper, when being felt for the final time.

As he steps upon the racetrack this morning, he stands taller— prouder— as if he knows his curtain call is looming. Not a particularly large animal, he possesses an innate ability to stand above the rest of the workers passing by in the early hours of the day. His stature comes not from the hands on a measuring stick, but from the fire within his very heart— the age-old nobility within his eye. He is the center of his own universe— the ruler of his realm.

His ears flick forward and back— side to side. He tilts his head in the direction of the consistent clicks coming from the rail behind him; every snap, capturing a moment forever frozen in memory— to be revered when times such as this, exist no longer. He will soon leave this place, these mornings behind— for greener pastures, and the luxury of a retirement so richly deserved.

Still, for this decorated warrior, a final battle lies ahead— one where he will meet, once more, worthy opponents of old beneath a grandstand awash with those who have come to witness greatness— and the swan song of the blazing-red hero before them. Their eyes will fixate upon his braided mane—his flowing tail— the fury in his gait. This is the image they will most remember of a horse bigger than life, when the final sip of warmth from the day is gone.

Bittersweet, are the final pages of a story, when the sun begins to set on a job well done. It is these times in which we savor every touch, every feeling, every heartbeat— because these moments, no matter how small, are felt deeper, when being felt for the final time.
