In what was pretty much a foregone conclusion–especially after he took home the hardware as champion older dirt male earlier in the evening–Winchell Thoroughbreds and Three Chimneys Farm’s Gun Runner (Candy Ride {Arg}) was crowned Horse of the Year at Thursday evening’s Eclipse Awards. The then 4-year-old turned in an excellent five-for-six season in 2017, with his lone defeat a runner-up effort behind Arrogate (Unbridled’s Song) in the G1 Dubai World Cup. The Steve Asmussen pupil came back to the States better than ever, reeling off four dominant victories culminating in a comprehensive success in the GI Breeders’ Cup Classic.

China Horse Club International and Clearsky Farms’ Abel Tasman (Quality Road–Vargas Girl, by Deputy Minister), winner of the GI Kentucky Oaks, has been named champion 3-year-old filly at the Eclipse Award Ceremony at Gulfstream Park. The bay filly also won the GI Acorn S. and GI Coaching Club American Oaks and was second in the GI Breeders’ Cup Distaff.

GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies winner Caledonia Road (Quality Road–Come a Callin, by Dixie Union) has been named champion 2-year-old filly at the Eclipse Awards ceremony at Gulfstream Park. Owned by Zoom and Fish Stable, Charlie Spiring and Newtown Anner Stud, the bay filly was also second in the GI Frizette S.
