Gun Runner Brother Fortune Ticket to Stand in Maryland

Fortune Ticket, a full brother to Gun Runner, to stand at Anchor & Hope in Maryland.

Port Deposit, MD- Climax Stallions LLC has announced that Gun Runner's full brother, Fortune Ticket, will stand his first season at stud in 2022 at Anchor & Hope Farm in Port Deposit, Maryland. Gun Runner recently broke the first crop progeny earnings record set by Uncle Mo in 2015, who broke Tapit's 2008 record. Fortune Ticket was initially raced by his breeder, Three Chimney's Farm, where Gun Runner will stand in 2022 for $125,000 stands and nurses. Fortune Ticket was a multiple allowance winner at 3 who ran a 7 on Thoromanager.

"Fortune Ticket is an exciting prospect for the great state of Maryland. He is the only son of Candy Ride in Maryland and is a FULL brother to a burgeoning superstar at stud, Gun Runner" said Climax Stallions President, Sean Feld.

Fortune Ticket will stand for just 2% of Gun Runner's ​$125,000 stud fee, $2,500 stands and nurses.

Louis Merryman of Anchor & Hope says, "Grace and I are excited to have a horse with this type of pedigree on our farm, not only is he a full brother to Gun Runner but he is from the family of Horse of The Year, Saint Liam. Fortune Ticket is correct and athletic which are keys to a stallion's success."

Fortune Ticket will join Climax Stallions LLC's Editorial​, a half-brother to Uncle Mo​, who also stands for $2,500 at Anchor & Hope.
