    "In the final race of a spectacular career, Gun Runner held Gary and Mary West's newly crowned 3-year-old champion at bay through the stretch and recorded a 2 1/2-length victory over West Coast in the second edition of the Pegasus before a crowd listed as 16,400.

    "We're not saying goodbye," said Gun Runner's trainer, Steve Asmussen. "What Gun Runner has given us will live in our memories forever."

    In his swan song Winchell Thoroughbreds and Three Chimneys Farm's Gun Runner lived up to every bit of the expectations that made him a heavy 6-5 favorite ($4.20) over his 11 rivals.

    With the $7 million winner's share of the purse, Gun Runner moved past California Chrome into second on the all-time earnings list with $15,988,500. He trails only Arrogate, who beat him in last year's Dubai World Cup Sponsored By Emirates Airline (G1) and retired with $17,422,600 in earnings."
