One of the best, fastest & most precocious sons of Gun Runner

Gr.1 winner as a 2YO

“a strapping dark bay colt named Gunite, who took on a talented field Sept. 6 in the Hopeful Stakes (G1)… When the field of 11 rounded out of the turn in the seven-furlong contest, it was Gunite who had everyone's attention… and pulled away to win by 5¾ lengths.”

Gr.2-winning sprinter as a 3YO

“Gunite is just a very special horse to race at the level he has for as long as he has and do it consistently” trainer Steve Asmussen

Gr.1-winning sprinter as a 4YO

“Gunite turned the tables on familiar rival Elite Power when defeating the reigning champion male sprinter in a tour de force performance in the $500,000 Forego (G1) Saturday at Saratoga Race Course… Gunite was too strong when leading at every point of call, shaking off an inside challenge from his foe in the stretch, and drawing off for a 1/3/4-length victory” Paulick Report
